Future Homes Competition
Finding infinity worked on the sustainability component of the winning Future Homes competition entry with LIAN.
The Future Homes initiative sets out to introduce a new type and scale of multi-residential development to Melbourne’s existing middle ring suburbs, to better meet the needs of the city and its residents.
“FREESPACE” attempts to provide a wider diversity of households with the equivalent advantages of the single-family home, ensuring a sense of privacy, generosity of space, ability to individualise and a strong sensory connection with the outdoors.
Finding Infinity developed a scheme that exceeded the minimum compliance and achieved an 88% reduction in energy, 63% reduction in water and 62% reduction in waste, using cost effective initiatives which were integrated into the building design.
The competition intent was to generate scalable and replicable designs for apartment buildings that are great homes, great neighbours and great citizens.
