Grace Wilson Estate was developed for DHA and won the UDIA Qld Award for Excellence – Small Residential Subdivision category. The 4 hectare site was constrained by steep topography and stormwater drainage. A sense of place was created by focusing houses on a central park, improving perceived safety and security of the area. Water sensitive urban design retained natural drainage paths by integrating landscape median strips and tree lined streets. Urban design principles ensure a functional and sustainable quality living environment for families.
