Developed with the extraordinary support of creative partners loopcreative, Landart Landscapes, Lo-Fi Design and Engineering and Promena Projects, the Pavilion is a rich and diverse addition to the Sydney Indesign experience.
The 500 square metre Pavilion opens with a conceptual lighting and projection space housed in a Royal Wolf shipping container, representing Habitus’ online and digital presence. Adventurous use of technology, including Barco Projectors (who provided equipment for Sydney’s Vivid Festival), creates a compelling visual and auditory experience launches Habitus into the digital future.
Visitors then pass into a figurative internal area – covered by a cardboard canopy and finished in beautiful Antique Floors floorboards, the Habitus indoor experience manifests the warmth of natural timber, the artisanship and sustainability of responsible reuse, and the endless possibilities that alternative materials offer for cheaper, greener dwellings.
The third area in the Pavilion is a recreation of an idealised Habitus external space. Beautifully landscaped with living vegetation and established trees and illuminated by Lightco products, this is also a place for relaxation and fun, with a variety of Classique outdoor furnishings providing settings for casual refreshment and socialisation. The Habitus bar by whatsontap will also be serving a range of drinks, including a special Habitus cocktail, throughout the event.
The outdoor space will host the Habitus ‘Home’ exhibition, composed of submissions from readers representing the concept of ‘Home’. Arranged on a series of Hills Hoist clotheslines, the exhibition explores this central issue in a quintessentially Australian context.
The Habitus Pavilion competition will offer visitors the chance to win an amazing trip Brisbane to see the California Design exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art this November/December. More details will be available on the days.

The Habitus Pavilion will be open to visitors through Sydney Indesign, from August 15-17, at the Galleria Space in the Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh.
