Cubby House Challenge®

2018 Cubby House Challenge® 


Thursday 22 March saw the five wildly different cubby houses go under the hammer and what a result it was!

All five cubbies sold on the night raising $70,000 for our youth homelessness prevention programs. Every cubby was a winner!

Congratulations to Becon Constructions and Watson Young Architects who took out the title of Australia’s Best Cubby when ‘Rocky Road’ sold at auction for an incredible $20,500!

This was the third award for the design and build team who also went home with the award for Most Imaginative & Interactive cubby and the Kids Choice Award

‘Heads Up’ by Buildher Collective, Beirin Projects and Bellemo & Cat was awarded ‘Best Architecturally Designed‘ cubby and the team at Porter Davis took out the award for ‘Best Interior Designed‘ cubby.

Thank you to everyone involved in the Cubby House Challenge® auction event. Congratulations to all award winners, the design & build teams, auctioneers & the successful bidders who contributed to the $70,000 raised. Big shout out to the cubby builders & suppliers who supported the builds, thank you for your generosity & involvement & of course the AMAZING cubbies.

Thank you to the event sponsors & partners, the MC Shura Taft, special guests and of course the expert judging panel!
