Wintringham Hostel

The citation for Wintringham Hostel, at City of Port Phillip Design and Development Awards reads

The scale, site planning and variety of materials and forms are eminently appropriate response to the architect's brief to create a particular kind of supportive home environment.

Residents are accommodated in 35 individual residential units grouped into six family type clusters around communal facilities.

Occupants retain a high degree of personal identity within a low-key institutional setting while having access to private open space and shared indoor and outdoor leisure areas.
