Design innovation. Designed for Gen Y by Gen Y
The Gen Y Demonstration Housing competition invited young West Australian architects to submit an 'idea' which encapsulated the Gen Y lifestyle and living requirements. Participants were asked to visually describe a flexible, cost effective and sustainable dwelling for the next generation of home owners.
Perth Builders has been announced as the builder of the Gen Y demonstration housing. Visit the dedicated website to see the progress of the build and learn about the innovative design solutions incorporated into this project.
On Monday 24 March 2014 at an event hosted by Fernella Kernebone from ABC's By Design programme, the winner of the Gen Y Demonstration Housing competition was announced as The Step House by David Barr.
The house will be built on Lot 7 of the White Gum Valley residential estate where it will be open for display. Industry, community and school groups will be invited to visit and learn more about the design and the sustainability initiatives integrated into the design.
