Pilbara Housing Prototypes


The Pilbara Housing Prototypes is an additional chapter of the Pilbara Vernacular Handbook, which explores several housing design typologies for building in flood prone areas. It aims to provide a diverse range of house type solutions from single-family dwellings to townhouse and multiple unit housing. Various construction methods have been explored including standard construction methods, modular hybrids, raised stilted homes and steel frame modular construction.

Our designs draw upon the investigation undertaken in the Pilbara Vernacular Handbook and are purely speculative. Further investigation is required with the construction and planning sectors. The designs do however, respond to Landcorp’s Climatic Responsive Design Policy with regards to setbacks, natural ventilation and open space.
