Newport Women’s Housing sets a new standard for high-quality affordable housing in a country grappling with a housing affordability crisis. It seamlessly meets the needs of at-risk women and children but introduces an adaptable model ripe for adaptation by diverse groups and communities.

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.

“Intelligent and well considered design maximised the outcome while providing a fantastic living environment for the people who tenant the building.”
