Project Status: In progress
What we’re doing
7 proposals have been shortlisted in the Alternative Housing Ideas Challenge.
An independent jury selected the entries for new housing models to increase alternative and affordable housing supply across our city and reduce housing stress.
The shortlisted entries were whittled down from more than 230 as part of the international challenge, which invited housing ideas in the areas of financing, design, building, ownership and management.
The City of Sydney anticipates the successful chosen projects will provide learnings for future initiatives.
The community will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the shortlisted concepts as part of the the City of Sydney’s consultation to shape Sydney 2050.
Reimagining how we live
As part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, the 7 shortlisted teams gave us insight into the ideas and the inspiration behind their work. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion of experts considering what the future of housing could look like.
The presenters provided innovative models that would increase alternative and affordable housing supply across the city. These models included financing, design, building, ownership and management, and are expected to provide the City of Sydney with lessons for future projects.
