Women's Housing Ltd worked in collaboration with Urbanxchange to develop a 24 apartment complex in Bayswater. The development, that will house women at risk of homelessness and family violence, won the Social Infrastructure Development of the Year award at the 2020 Urban Developer Awards for Industry Excellence. Designed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects the one and two bedroom 6.6 star apartments offer abundant natural light and ventilation, 2.7 metre ceilings, generous living spaces, balconies, storage and upper-level views to the Dandenong Ranges. The project prioritises security while allowing the residents generous living spaces with optimal outlook. A small office in the building permits Women’s Housing Ltd and family violence support workers to deliver on-site assistance and programming. “The women have established themselves here. We’re located in the heart of Bayswater and there are nearby schools, childcare, shops and transport. The children have stability and they can go to school safely. It has definitely changed their lives.” Tenancy Officer Amos Matteri, ClarkeHopkinsClarke project leader, described the Urban Developer Award as a testament to the strong collaborative relationship that underpinned the development.
