suburban dreams

MADA Monash University

Tutors:  Luca Lana


Suburban Dreams combined elements from the characteristics of suburban housing with the intensified programming associated with international co-housing models.  Research of international and local past and present co-housing models while testing the limits of freestanding, dwellings—oft-portrayed as un-environmental and poorly designed yet represent a majority of new homes built today.


It is in this environment that students were asked to introduce new kinds of housing types that better address contemporary issues of equality, affordability, sustainability an overall improved urban environment. Students did not entirely disregard the legacy of the ‘Australian dream’ but evolved it.
