Homes for change
At Assemble, we believe every Australian deserves access to an affordable, well-designed home, and everyone deserves a community to come home to. We’ve made it our mission to challenge our country’s housing crisis—to come up with new ideas on how we can create a better, fairer system.
We began with Assemble Futures (previously known as the Assemble Model)—an alternate pathway to home ownership enabling residents to rent securely for five years, with the option to buy their home at the end of the lease period.
In June 2020, Australia’s largest superannuation fund, AustralianSuper invested into our company, with a focus on supporting the expansion of our Assemble Futures model to help address housing affordability and create better access to homeownership.
Today, we’re also building secure rental communities—apartments for renters, where residents can stay for a while, or as long as they like, in quality homes located in suburbs where this type of housing is needed most.
Our combined experience spans property, construction, finance, investment, architecture, urban design, asset operations, community engagement, marketing communications and advocacy. Each day we challenge and inspire our team to interrogate assumptions, and the diversity of skills and experience across our growing team of 36 represents our commitment to doing things differently and more responsibly in the housing development space.
Our values and ideas find a voice in Assemble Papers, a biannual free online and printed magazine putting people front and centre in conversations around design, housing, and social infrastructure and impact.
