YOU COULD BE THE NABD DREAM DESIGNER OF THE YEAR.

CREATE A CONCEPT DESIGN FOR A 4 BEDROOM HOUSE USING SCYON WALL CLADDING THAT WILL BE THE ENVY OF THE STREET AND THE CLIENT'S FRIENDS.

Jessica and Jared (the rocket bike rider) Jetson believe that despite Australia’s housing affordability problems they can build a dream home on a small lot. They want to build a home that’s the envy of their friends in order to encourage them to sell their inner city apartments and move into the suburbs with them. Their wealthy, eccentric uncle has offered to pay half the build cost if the design is unique, fresh and futuristic.

The finalists will be showcased at the National Association of Building Designers Conference on 1st October 2016 where the theme is Australian Home of the 21st Century. The winner will be crowned “Dream Designer Of The Year” at the event.

Where will you park your Rocket 3000 in the house of the future? Design a stand-out small lot home which meets the needs of the next generation of Australian home owners.
