High Density Happiness: Designing Apartments to Wear In, Not Wear Out.
Tue. 21 March 2017, 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm AEDT
Good apartment design is more than fashionable appliance brands and glossy marketing brochures. Apartment buildings need to provide housing that supports the physical and mental wellbeing of its occupants for 70-100 years plus. New development must be underpinned by durable design principles to plan ahead for generations of inhabitants.
Join Open Journal’s celebrated High Density Happiness series with this panel of Melbourne’s leading architects and designers to discuss the value of designing spaces for long term living, where the value of functional, adaptable floorplans and quality, low maintenance materials goes beyond building equity growth, to ensure the ongoing social and environmental sustainability of our cities.
