JDA was tasked with masterplanning the development as well as designing each of the townhouses. As the project was for a government client, we had to keep strict budget constraints in mind, as well as a number of other performance requirements.
02. Remote & Complex
Being a large project in one of the most remote parts of the country, we had to consider design and material choices to allow for ease of construction. Rather than creating a different design for each of the 20 townhouses, we developed a series of house types which responded to the orientation and topography of each of the sites. The roof forms of each townhouse maximise views, whilst also protecting from the sun and severe weather.

Remote & Complex
JDA has a reputation for innovative, collaborative projects with a strong emphasis on design. We don’t specialise in any specific type of work, but focus on undertaking projects that present an opportunity to turn problems into enjoyable challenges. Since our foundation, JDA has been undertaking projects in remote communities across Queensland, including housing, education and cultural buildings.
