Here is a snippet from the program and setting for the open competition:

'The brief calls for the design of a model dwelling to accommodate 4 people. The dwelling should incorporate up to a maximum 12,000 bricks – half the number of bricks used in the average interwar suburban bungalow on a typical quarter acre lot. The dwelling should be considered within its context, and like the humble brick, designed to be enduring. Participants will select their own site based on a specific suburban location, or else describe a setting in generic terms. Significantly, the project should demonstrate a shift in thinking about the suburban house and encourage innovative approaches to the densification of our suburbs.'
