As a program, Habitus House of the Year has consistently pushed the boundaries to showcase residential design and architecture that is unique and progressive.
To celebrate this year’s incredible line-up of 20 houses – and the three Major Partners who make it all possible – we’re hosting three events, each crafted to explore the different forces and directions shaping how our homes are conceived, designed and executed.
Envisaged as a mini-festival of design, each of these events brings together expert panellists to discuss three timely topics that have emerged out of the 20 houses in the 2023 Selection. While you can immerse yourself in the extraordinary stories of each of the houses online – and even tell us which one is your favourite to go in with a chance to win a $8,500 prize pack – it’s the live, in-person events that truly honour outstanding design and bolster connection. It’s here that we make space for free-flowing conversations about the stories behind the design, a philosophy that Habitus has been championing since day one.
Dive into the series below, but don’t forget to RSVP and reserve your spot as places are strictly limited.
