Manggala Apartments

This development was for local traditional owners, Nyamba Buru Yawuru, as part of their community based property portfolio. In addition to the expectations of a high yield within a modest budget, there was an expectation that the values of the local building vernacular would be retained. The resulting light filled private units are all well placed for access to the cooling breeze and adopt many elements of local building vernacular that contribute directly to the performance of the development. This building adopted double shutters extensively due to the good shade they deliver but also the privacy screening they provide to the upper floor units.
