This project involved a master plan for a proposed mining village and included a central facilities building, recreation rooms, gymnasium, swimming pool, manager’s office and 300 permanent and 250 temporary accommodation units. The units are configured in a shallow radial pattern symmetrically around the main access ways, taking advantage of the sites topography. This facilitates overland flow and drainage, while providing an orientation which minimises the heat loading on buildings and captures prevailing breezes.
