The cluster of accommodation buildings are connected through a colour scheme of tropical hues, green, purple and orange, while at the same time giving identity to each unit. The 6 x 2 bed units have calming internal colour schemes inspired by the tropical Cape York landscape using cooling greens and ochre reds. Outdoor dining spaces and timber screens balance public and private areas, affording a degree of interaction with neighbors, and privacy. Open plan design and adjustable louvers, large eaves and sun shading enable the buildings to mitigate the climate, reducing energy costs of remote area living.
