Amelie Housing, a department of St Vincent de Paul commissioned Melocco & Moore as Head Consultant to replace existing non-compliant housing on a site in a low-density residential area in South Albury with new apartments that complied with the Australian Housing Design Guidelines.

Our approach was to divide the building into two separate blocks providing a communal open space courtyard to the centre of the site. All 18 apartments feature a north aspect, generous private open space and cross ventilation. The central courtyard also acts as the main thoroughfare the site allow for the casual meeting opportunities essential for community and individual well-being.

This project was completed in February 2020. It has been part funded under the NSW Government Social and Affordable Housing Fund.
