Formatted abstract
This thesis proposes an alternate housing model for affordable medium density housing for South East Queensland. The proposed model is based upon the spatial arrangement of the Balinese Coumpound House and the facilitation of a sense of community associated with the Co-housing conept.

Three main areas of interest are explored that are relevant to the development of the Medium Density Multigenerational House Complex model. These are the examination of the Balinese Compound House, current trends of affordability and household types in South East Queensland, and, the exploration of the Co-housing concept.

Embedded within each main line of enquiry are several sub-themes that have infl uenced the design of a Proposed Medium Density Multigenerational House Complex in Brisbane. These range from briefl y exploring the concept of decentralised architectural design, appropriate climatic response strategies of existing vernacular architecture in wet, hot tropical climates, the maintenance of a 21st century Australian level of residential living, and regulatory and legal issues associated with Communal or Common Title.

The fi nal chapter describes a proposed schematic design a Medium Density Multigenrational House Complex sited in Dayboro, approximatly forty-fi ve kilometers north-west of Brisbane City Business District.
