Project Description

Green Turtle terraces are located in 1770 Queensland. The design is a unique approach to cluster town housing to incorporate maximum solar penetration and cross ventilation through the breezes. The central courtyard area is a place to swim, BBQ and a communal meeting area. There is maximum privacy between units through the use of roofing privacy screens and blade walls, however there is always a feeling of community spirit between neighbors. The design concept came from the green turtles off the Great Barrier Reef where the turtle shell allows for aerodynamic ventilation and a sense of grace.
