The Project Home Project
97% of housing in Australia is procured without the involvement of an architect.
O’Neill Architecture was approached by a notable Project Home Builder to customise a number of their designs in specific circumstances. The request originated with their clients, seeking a greater sense of individualisation and response to site from the standard designs. A higher quality outcome ensued, but it was still constrained by the original framework of the large footprint, one size fits all sites approach to project homes.
We altered our approach customising standard project home materials and components to create a bespoke ‘protoype’. A way of assemblage rather than an assembly system. We now apply this logic to all of our low cost housing solutions.
