The White Gum Valley precinct represents an eclectic mix of architectural styles.  Diverse in scale and materials, the suburb is somewhat tired and in need of rejuvenation.  This competition presented an opportunity for Motus to design and develop a project in the new White Gum Valley Landcorp Redevelopment Area.  Our proposal was to create an intensification of density in a way that re-thinks conventional accommodation and lifestyle amenities, and encourages a more positive balance between privacy and community.  Key design principles for this project were Sustainability, Community and Lifestyle. 

The design has a strong focus on the activation of the ground floor level and interaction of the building with the community spaces.  With outdoor seating, planting and communal gardens this space offers a great place for residents to gather and interact.   It is also envisioned that community activities could occur in this space. 


Being both Architects and Developers Motus was able to offer a holistic response to the brief.
