DCSI – Pt Augusta, Boston Street Housing Reuse

Reuse of old Housing Trust buildings

Energy Architecture and WAX Design (landscape architects) combined talents to successfully transform an old and “tired” Housing Trust development into a socially responsive, community supportive development.

Redesign made creative use of structures designated for demolition to reconfigure external spaces, resulting in increased privacy and an overall refocus of “public” areas into community spaces.

Layout of security fencing was redesigned to blend into existing and new landscape, significantly reducing visual impact and adding to the sense of an inviting, liveable, and aesthetically pleasing place.
