Live, Play, Work: Student Housing and the Australian Dream
This project proposes a student accommodation that reintroduces the gradually vanishing values of the Australian dream due to the development of contemporary housing. The project explores the idea of community and the integration of ‘work and home’ through a number of design elements taken from suburban life. Targeting design students, my design aims to provide residents with experiences of the suburban lifestyle through a variety of communal spaces designed for entertainment, socialising and working purposes. This proposal aims to encourage residents of different design disciplines to integrate and build an enclosed neighbourhood, as it is an integral component of every version of the Australian dream.
