28 March 2023

For the third year, Future Homes hosted a panel discussion at MPavillion on Tuesday the 28th March 2023.

Inspired by the legacy of Robyn Boyd’s small home service; Future Homes are light-filled three storey apartment designs that can be adapted to various sites. The panel explored the detailed—and often unseen—design considerations that make Future Homes model apartments for future living.

Facilitated by Andrew Mackenzie, City Lab, the panel line up included:

  • Nick Mann, Department of Transport and Planning
  • Stefan Preuss, Office of the Victorian Government Architect
  • Dr Sarah Foster, RMIT
  • Andres Lopez, Agency for Design Strategy
  • Lisa Garner, LIAN
  • Peter McGregor, McGregor Westlake Architecture
  • Felipe Ayala, Spiral Architects Lab

The panel discussed how we can deliver family homes in multi-residential developments. As well they discussed the need for better apartments and what makes apartments better and more liveable.
