REALMstudios worked with the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities to envision a water sensitive alternative to Darwin’s urban development. The work draws from the observation of operating natural systems in the Darwin catchment and applies these systems to influence a new development model. At once it deals with periodic rainfall events, extended dry periods and integrated ecosystems, along with increased shade and community amenity for residents. The proposal reduces in-ground infrastructure and provides significant value at a range of levels.
