We Work Here: We Live Here

City of Sydney Housing Competition

Our proposal is a strategy for applying a alternative way of living to existing building typologies found across the City of Sydney. We believe that the answer to solving a lack of affordable housing is not to simply build more housing; instead, the search for different ways of living can open up the idea of housing and allow for more options into the housing market.

Our proposal is strategy that allows for the implementation of communal living into existing typologies on the city of Sydney. For each typology, we demonstrate how the buildings can be retrofitted to accommodate a collective living scenario, where work spaces and living spaces exist side by side.

Typology 1: The Terrace House

Typology 2: The Office Tower

Typology 3: The Warehouse
