Australian architects designed cubby houses to raise funds against youth homelessness

Australia’s top architects and builders joined forces to construct cubby houses that put your DIY backyard shacks to shame. All for a good cause, of course.

The Cubby House Challenge at the annual Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is a collaborative, friendly competition between architects and builders to create amazing cubby houses.

Among the childhood dream homes on display are Porter Davis’ shipwreck-themed cubby ‘Relic’, which features climbing walls, a hatch door and a collection of objects from around the globe to inspire imagination.

Matt Gibson Architecture and Hartman Construction collaborated on a multi-story cubby that features a fireman’s pole, a rock-climbing wall, LED lighting, a built-in sound system, and even a lavender-scented ceiling.

The funds raised from the Cubby House Challenge go to Kids Under Cover, an organisation that helps prevent youth homelessness by building homes and providing scholarships to at-risk young people.
