Green Magazine and MINI LIVING

We were invited by Green Magazine and MINI LIVING (a collaboration with RMIT and the City of Melbourne) to participate in a hypothetical urban village in the heart of Melbourne. Architects and RMIT students were asked to generate designs through the medium of hand sketches (architects) and 3D digital printing and laser cutting (students). The exhibition will be held in Melbourne late October 2018.

Government: Demonstration Housing - ACT

We are delighted that our client’s co-housing proposal has made it to the next round of the ACT Government’s Demonstration Housing Expression of Interest process.

In an effort to test new ways of responding to density and growth the ACT Government is seeking development proposals that target affordability, environmental performance and innovative design. We think our client’s vision of small sustainable houses with shared living spaces and gardens would be a fantastic addition to the suburbs of Canberra. We are excited to work with them on the next stage of the design.

David Barr Architects shortlisted for the Hilton Revitalisation Project.....

We are so very pleased to be shortlisted along with two other Fremantle based architectural practices for the Hilton Design Competition.


"The competition attracted 79 entries from both emerging and established architectural practices. The jury was overwhelmed by the number of entries and impressed with the variety of the design approaches and the consistently high quality of the submissions. It genuinely made the process of shortlisting only four entries extremely difficult, but based on the creativity and innovation of the submissions the future of public housing in Hilton will be very impressive.

Housing is pleased to confirm the following teams have been shortlisted by the jury:

David Barr and Stephen Hicks, David Barr Architects
Bernard Seeber, Jonathan Strauss and Georgia Willis, Bernard Seeber Architects
Trent Woods, Officer Woods Architects
Jennie Officer, Officer Woods Architects"
