Our story

Assemble is a property development and community management company focused on delivering affordable housing projects where good design, community, and sustainability go hand-in-hand.

Assemble also publishes Assemble Papers, an online and biannual print publication exploring small footprint living across art, design, architecture, urbanism, the environment, and financial matters.

We pooled our skills in 2010, spurred to action by the increasing absence of well-designed housing in our much-loved city, Melbourne. We believe small footprint living is not a compromise – through good design, a vertical life is an enriching, engaging and socially responsible one.

The launch of the Assemble Model marks a new chapter for Assemble as we go deeper into building the culture of living closer together in Melbourne and beyond.
