Abstract

Regional Australia has experienced a population exodus similar to other industrialised economies over the past 25 years. That exodus has stripped many rural towns of both population and service industry skills. As the population exodus begins to reverse so the demand for metropolitan quality housing and work spaces has become established. This paper will present the design and development of a flat pack multi-purpose timber panel system developed specifically to meet this need, and will present two case studies in detail, examining the successes, failures and opportunities for further development of the prototype.
