"A search for a new kind of public housing, inviting novel typologies for infill development in Western Australia that can challenge expectations and generate variety, equity and affordability." - Competition Callout Brief.
Stage one invited participants to submit a concept design for two public housing units with a max. of 80sqm per dwelling on a rear battle-axed lot in Hilton.
