‘Future Homes’ is a government initiative to facilitate better density development in the suburbs. The first stage of the project achieves this through readily available, high quality apartment plans paired with a streamlined planning process.

The ‘Future Homes design competition’ was launched at MPavilion in February 2020. Two years later, we invite you to come along and see the design evolution of the four winning schemes— from competition idea to viable apartment developments for the suburbs.

The four architect teams will present their design process and plans, followed by a panel discussion exploring how to deliver viable and excellent housing for more people.
