”When I saw this project open, that was the moment I realised I wanted to positively contribute to people's lives, in particular those that are doing it tough, not through creating architecture, but through helping facilitate the creation of places.Ben ReidBecome.

Kingswood Social Housing
A new start, safe behind new doors
In 2019 we were given the opportunity to work with Mission Australia Housing to help deliver much needed social housing accommodation in Western Sydney.
We created a complex of 19 Apartments designed to provide a safe home for vulnerable people, including those experiencing homelessness, older women, young people and women escaping domestic violence.
Not only do the apartments provide a safe place to live but enable the residents to receive the support and services they need to help get them back on their feet and live independently.
Having designed over 1,100 apartments, townhouses and dwellings since the inception of Become., seeing this project completed impacted us deeply. On the day it was opened by the Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services made us remember that our projects were about people. It encouraged our focus. It gave us a refreshed purpose to work with Community Housing providers to help create more and better homes for those in need.
