Following last year’s successful LiveLife series during Sydney Indesign, we’re back in Melbourne in August to discuss a topic that’s becoming relevant for more and more Design Hunters across the Region.

Multi-residential living is on the rise and, amidst plenty of not-so successful examples, there is a crop of quality developments being designed and built.

We believe multi-res can be more than a necessary evil – community spaces and gardens encourage the kind of communal living and inter-dependence that our society can benefit from. But how do we strike the right balance of community and privacy in these kinds of developments? Between amenity and economy?
