Located on 110 sqm, the homes have been put together through a team dedicated to try and tackle the affordability of houses, whilst trying to ensure that cities provide inspiring architecture and house structures to developing cities.

All the family needs to do is provide the land, and they are then supported with architectural assistance and building material. 

This initiative is something that could be used in developing areas globally, and even Australia. The assurance that the house is sturdy and well structured is one thing, but ensuring it fits within a larger 'architectural' image is another. 

This is one cool concept!
