HABITAT is a creative mixed use village in the “North Beach” part of Byron Bay. The idea behind the village is to foster community interaction by providing a mix of activities for the people who live and work at the site as well as for the broader community.
The design is specifically fashioned to encourage creativity and innovation and to become a model for sustainability and urban development. Habitat is a state-of-the-art development with contemporary architectural vision, cutting-edge telecommunications and thoughtful planning.
PLANNERS NORTH are the Town Planners for the HABITAT project.
