Medium Density Housing

The future of housing trends in Melbourne


Recent studies suggest Australia is among the lowest density housing communities in the world. Bigger blocks and bigger houses in turn means a larger carbon footprint, but Robinsons Rise is bucking that trend with its future-thinking green technology and recycling systems . In recent years Melbourne has seen significant growth in medium and high-rise developments and between 2003 and 2013, growth was greatest in the six growth area municipalities; Wyndham, Casey, Melton, Whittlesea, Hume and Cardinia, accounting for 49% of all new dwellings.

Medium Density Housing
How fast is Melbourne growing?

Recent metropolitan planning in Melbourne estimate the demand for housing to be 1,570,000 new dwellings by 2051; the inner city will need 310,000, the established suburbs 650,000 and outer growth areas 610,000 new dwellings. These large increases raise the issue of land supply and the biggest challenge is, how do we meet this demand for housing? The answer is medium density housing and the reformed residential zones, which, on 1 July 2014, came into full effect across Victoria. Now, all residentially zoned land is included in one of the reformed residential zones.

  • We are inspired to design and build ergonomic and affordable spaces.
  • We create spaces that are beneficial to home and business owners by working within and promoting the medium density sustainability chart.
