The Mardie Salt & Potash Project
Mardie Mining Village
At BCI Mardie Village, every detail has been meticulously crafted to offer residents an unparalleled experience that reimagines remote living with a primary focus on wellness, safety, & amenity.
BCI Mardie Village has been designed to offer residents a wellness, safety and health focused remote living experience. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a stunning resort-style atmosphere that reflects a commitment to luxury and aesthetics. Vibrant colors and innovative architecture immediately set the tone, enhancing the overall experience. The “cultural mall” serves as a central hub and ‘social heart’ of the village, connecting various facilities and amenities while providing a safe pedestrian environment with opportunities for external art and sculptures.
Navigating the village is made easy with clearly marked pathways and all-weather access points. Key facilities such as the Administration/Retail/Transit Lounge and the combined dry and wet mess (The Bistro) are strategically located to meet residents’ needs efficiently without disrupting the village’s tranquility. A variety of recreational opportunities are available for residents to enjoy, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. The Gymnasium taking center stage alongside a host of other activities including a beer garden, golf driving nets, BBQ area, and multipurpose playing field.
Accommodation units are designed for comfort and practicality, featuring spacious layouts and quality furnishings to ensure residents feel at home. A focal point of the accommodation precinct is the amphitheater and BBQ pavilions which enhance social interaction, providing venues for community gatherings and entertainment.
Strategically placed vibrant pops of colour reinforce the cultural focus and create a logical and unified design approach galvanising the interior, exterior and landscape into one legible clearly interpreted and respectful built form composition.
