The standard cycle of urban living involves young adults helping to regenerate and redevelop an area, then promptly getting priced out the minute they need more space to start a family, relocating to deep suburbia and losing the community they were part of. Austin Maynard Architects has addressed this problem with the creation of Terrace House, a new ‘ethical housing’ development in Melbourne which sees stacked, concrete apartments intelligently designed with high ceilings, large windows and access to outdoor space to make them suitable for family living. ‘These are not apartments, these are homes,’ say Austin Maynard. ‘Terrace houses stacked six storeys high.’
