Newport Women's Housing offers a contemporary take on traditional family homes. Careful planning maximises space via a design that incorporates multiple roof forms, central entry and a recessed third level.

Through clever spatial design and careful selection of materials, finishes and ESD initiatives this development delivers award-winning contemporary homes that are lovely to inhabit and affordable to build and run.

“Our most important consideration throughout the design process was carefully integrating this development into its surroundings and giving residents refined contemporary homes with a real sense of sanctuary and permanence.”
