2019 National Architecture Awards: National Commendation for Small Project Architecture

Fish River Ranger Accommodation by Design Construct, School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia.

Jury citation

The Fish River Ranger Accommodation project was undertaken by the University of South Australia’s Design Construct program for the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation. Students and rangers collaborated to adapt existing steel-framed tent structures to improve the comfort, amenity and privacy for users in the remote location. The result is a model that delivers better insulated, ventilated and insect-proof accommodation for rangers and a viable tropical Indigenous housing alternative.

Fish River Ranger Accommodation is located in Fish River Station, Northern Territory and is built on the land of the Ngan’giwumirri (Labarganyin), Wagiman, Malak Malak and Kamu people.
