About dWELL

We want to set the benchmark for future housing, creating a more liveable City where sustainability and wellbeing are priorities.

dWELL is a $40,000 nationwide home design competition to showcase next-generation urban housing in Australia.

We asked industry professionals and tertiary students to design a new style of home with wellness, innovation, affordability and sustainability at its heart.

The dWELL competition had two categories: one for professional architects and building designers, the other for teams comprising at least one architecture student (or similar relevant discipline).

The winning designs showcase what is possible and provides valuable insight as we work towards our Housing Strategy.
