GroupGSA were invited to tender for a new Co-Living product that our client Mirvac were bringing to the market, across Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
After a successful design competition process, GroupGSA then helped formulate the design brief and standards for the national roll-out that is envisaged.
Through our research unit and extensive understanding of Designing for Neurodiversity, we helped provide the overlay to ensure that, amongst others, community and inclusivity were strong design pillars being applied to all design thinking, to help create a happier, healthier and lasting population, thus easing operational management for the client through a lower vacancy rates.
Developing the key design drivers as scalable concepts has ensured easy application across multiple sites of varying size, and streamlining the due diligence phase on various other locations.
Taken to tender phase, this particular project involved Architecture, Urban Design, Landscape, and Interior Design, and looked to leverage the site’s existing industrial character to provide a cost effective aesthetic and palette of raw materials, which complemented the projects environmental aspirations and avoided use of unnecessary or applied finishes throughout.
