The Aussie Architects Designing New Houses For An Affordable Flat Fee

From 1947 to the late ‘70s, the Small Homes Service (SHS) provided an affordable option for Victorians interested in an architect-designed house. Consumers could choose from a range of architect plans published in The Age (complete with working drawings and specifications), purchase them for a modest price, and have these constructed by a builder. 

The first SHS director, Robin Boyd, estimated at one stage around 40% of new homes in Melbourne were being built through the service.

The number of architect-designed homes has since dropped to an estimated 5% nationally – a figure that Architopia is hoping to change. Adopting a similar model to the SHS, the online platform allows individuals to purchase an architectural house design for a flat fee.

Speaking to founders Robert Duffield, Sophie Lindblom-Taylor, and Leon Morton, we learned what inspired this innovative model.

A Mountain-Top Holiday Spot That Floats Above The Clouds

Interior designer Josie Simpson of Altus Design Studio purchased this Blue Mountains property in 2019. While the settlement took longer than expected, she used the time to collect all her ideas and inspiration buzzing around her head for a unique new accommodation offering.

Cloud Parade is the result of all that planning. With sublime escarpment views and a clean, contemporary interior scheme, Josie has created a cosy and sympathetic companion to the spectacular national park surrounding this home.

Making the most of potentially the best views in the country? Mission accomplished!
