Belyuen Community Project

In September 2013 the Bower Studio worked alongside residents of the Belyuen Community to construct a sheltered outdoor living area and kitchen for an Indigenous family from the HomesPLUS range of ‘Add Ons’. This project was one of the many projects the Bower Studio are undertaking in the Northern Territory as part of a larger initiative called HomesPLUS. This innovative, best practice procurement model for new housing and housing upgrades works alongside Indigenous communities throughout Australia to improve the sustainability, quality and quantity of housing.
