FREDERICK ROMBERG AWARD - Tropology for DHA
Troppo Architects win Residential Architecture - Multiple Housing Frederick Romberg Award at the 2017 National Architecture Awards.
''Tropology introduces a new housing paradigm for Defence Housing Australia (DHA) in Darwin. Understanding storage requirements for transient defence personnel residents and for “top end” extracurricular activities, the site plan was developed as a matrix of multi-purpose semi-outdoor and outdoor spaces. The design incorporates two-storey-long, thin plans that allow for cross-breeze. While the ground-level living spaces connect with both garden and street, the upper-level sleeping spaces provide Buffalo Creek views and draw evening sea breezes.''
