Houses at Vision by Halcyon QLD
Vision is an integrated community designed under the Halcyon banner of over 50’s active lifestyle living. The community is located on canal frontage and contains 88 homes along with recreation facilities and forms a premium part of the Halcyon range. Halcyon’s award winning communities are alive with vibrant activity characterized by fun and friendship.
DC8 Studio collaborated with the Halcyon team on house concepts specifically for this project, customised to suit a variety of individual contexts from canal frontage to appropriate perimeter homes addressing both the interior and exterior of the project. Equally, orientation, amenity, privacy ventilation and public space address are key factors. The form and materials of the homes relate to the Halcyon brand as well as the project specific vision and language. This resulted in additions to the Halcyon range including courtyard, corner, open space fronting and two storey homes.
This project offers some of the best opportunities for community integration from the interior of the home, to the semi-public front verandah through to the streets where friends gather to enjoy conversation or open up the garage to work on a range of hobbies. The streetscapes themselves become the backdrop of social activity, gardening, exercise and relaxation. The community recreation facilities further compliment the opportunity for a quality lifestyle as an expansion to the homes.
