Entry Description

With Sydney’s housing shortage continuing to worsen, an urgent need for solutions to tackle the severe lack of high-quality and affordable housing available.

In New South Wales, micro-living is currently the provision of homes that do not conform to current minimum space standards. By challenging this requirement, this project tends to demonstrate how compact flats can provide comfortable living spaces, at the same time facilitating social engagement within a cross cultural way of living.
