DesignFreo Conversation 05: Kate FitzGerald

17 JUNE 2021 // Join architect Kate FitzGerald as we explore better models for sub-division, in-fill and affordable, architect-designed homes.

If you’re considering sub-division, building or you just love beautiful design, this event is for you.

In-fill and medium density development are essential to ensuring a sustainable future for our city. However, many people fear what this means for the character and identity of their suburbs – and with good reason, given the poor quality of much development. How do we do a better job?

Architect Kate FitzGerald, through her practice Whispering Smith and development company New Resident, is showing the way. Her projects House A and B are prototypes for a different kind of in-fill, throwing out the cookie-cutter in favour of sustainable design that can house all kinds of people.

Join us in conversation as Kate shares her work and explains how the way we sub-divide and build can enrich life in our suburbs.

When: Thursday 17 June
Where: Sometimes Gallery, 6 King William Street, South Fremantle, WA, 6162
Time: 6pm – 8pm
