This panel conversation will be the launch event for the Home Made exhibition. The conversation is curated in collaboration with New Architects Melbourne and will include speakers from key innovative housing projects across Melbourne including:

  • Assemble 122 Roseneath Street, Clifton Hill
  • Property Collectives McCracken Street, Northcote
  • Nightingale 2.0
  • Murundaka Co Housing, Heidelberg Heights

Following the disruption to Design Week 2020, Home Made is relaunched with a new impetus, as we emerge from Covid-19 lockdown with an altered  relationship with our homes. As vacancies rise in investor grade apartments, and city dwellers look to the regions for an improved quality of life, we ask – what is the future of compact living in Melbourne?

Leveraging the track record of housing innovation concentrated in Melbourne in the past decade, this exhibition explores what a more community-centred, sustainable model of housing might look like, and how it can provide an attractive, generous way of living in our urban centres.

The exhibition presents a survey of projects which reflect Melbourne’s zeitgeist in housing innovation including Nightingale Housing, Assemble, Property Collectives, CoDev, Tripple, and the Third Way. Together, these models suggest a more optimistic and inclusive vision of urban living.

This event is presented in collaboration with Melbourne Design Week 2021
