For more than a decade Habitus Living has prided itself in its ability to keep an industry spread across the Asia Pacific feeling connected. Our internal editorial team and external network of contributors across continents have been steadfast in keeping our finger on the pulse of the industry, communicating and celebrating the work and accomplishments of our contemporaries.
As we accustom ourselves and our teams to a new normal – working from home and venturing outside only when necessary – we want to reassure you that Habitus Living is here for you. We are here to educate you when you want to learn, to rejuvenate you when you need inspiration, and to nourish you when you crave an escape.
We talk a lot about our ten-year history but many of you already know that, because you’ve joined us from the start. Just as we might miss the incremental evolutions of the people we see everyday, maybe you’ve missed ours? Or maybe you’re a new friend to Habitus Living and we can offer you a recap?
Dialling In With is one of our newest series and it’s about to expand so keep your eyes peeled.

Our origins are in residential architecture and how the houses we live in can not only enhance the functionality of our daily lives, but also serve as an expression of our unique personality. You can find our entire catalogue of residential architecture here.
As I mentioned earlier, we consider our local community to be that of the Asia Pacific as one: Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, and we’ve earmarked those regional projects here.
We are extremely proud that our quarterly print magazine is considered a pillar in the architecture and design community; many architects and architecture enthusiasts have complete collections. Each magazine is filled with timeless projects that won’t date; rather they serve as quarterly timestamps of state current state and mood of the industry.

Habitus House of the Year became a TV series with seasons 1 and 2 available to watch or re-watch here.

In 2018 we launched Habitus House of the Year to celebrate a carefully curated selection of 20 residential projects that we felt best exhibited our Region’s unique approach to design and way of life. We chose a further few of those projects to showcase in a completely new medium and as a result Habitus House of the Year became a TV series with seasons 1 and 2 available to watch or re-watch here.
Around the same time, and after countless requests, The Habitus Collection was re-born. Initially a printed directory The Habitus Collection found it’s new home online and offers our readers – architects, designers and design enthusiasts alike – a comprehensive resource on the key products we see specified again and again in the projects we cover. We developed this further with a fortnightly series that pulls out key themes and products of new projects on Habitus Living.

We mentioned there have been changes to how we work recently: some more than others and some in different ways to others. As the situation began to unroll Habitus Living was quick to jump on the phone with our community across the country to share how we were adapting and what we were learning. Dialling In With is one of our newest series and it’s about to expand so keep your eyes peeled.
We’ve got lots of things in the works. Some you’ll hear of sooner than others, and some – like the annual Kitchen & Bathroom issue, Habitus House of the Year 2020, and our regular unwavering coverage of the local architecture and design community – you might be keenly awaiting.
But let me give you a heads up right now: Habitus Living is a child of Indesign Media and Indesign Media never stops innovating, pushing the boundaries, or testing the limits. We are perfectionists and we are perfecting our product, but there is more to come.
