Following its completion, the Mirvac transformation house will go up for auction next week as the developer seeks to raise much-needed funds for the Salvation Army’s Red Shield appeal.
Designed by Mirvac’s in-house design team, the house was built in eight months and made possible with the help of 25 vendors. The developer hopes the house will be worth more than a million on auction day, with a target of $500,000. This sum of money would enable the Salvation Army to provide 2,564 days of safe emergency accommodation for people in need.
“Now, more than ever, so many Australians are struggling with housing and need our support,” says Australian Salvation Army Corps Officer Michael Wright.
“Homelessness is a critical issue which has affected over 278,300 Australians in 2020-21 – the sale of the Transformation House will raise much needed funds to help us continue to provide crisis, transitional and recovery housing. shelters for women and their children, rooming houses and community housing.Together, Mirvac and the new owners play an extremely important role in helping us support those in need.
The two-storey, four-bedroom home will be ready to immediately welcome its future owner, with interiors designed by Dani Wales and Manna Made of Healthy Homes Australia. Boasting a 7-star NatHERS rating, the house’s efficiency was a major part of the design process. Interior spaces are open and adaptable, with a double garage, Smeg appliances, walk-in closets, two ensuite bathrooms, and a resort-style backyard offered to potential buyers.
Mirvac Residential Manager Stuart Penklis said: “The Mirvac team have masterfully created this one-of-a-kind home with the support of our generous suppliers, ensuring it is extremely livable for its future owners and we are confident that it will help us generate much needed funds for the Red Shield Appeal on auction day.
“Mirvac has been reimagining urban living for 50 years, and the future-ready Transformation House demonstrates our continued commitment to creating environmentally, economically and socially sustainable communities. It was truly wonderful to see our community come together to help raise vital funds so the Salvation Army can continue to create a better future for those affected by homelessness.
Dani Wales says the interior palette was influenced by the backdrop provided by the fixed and fitted elements.
“We are very proud to have participated in the style of this beautiful house designed by Mirvac. For us, it was about creating a soft and calm palette, with furniture that blends harmoniously with the existing fixtures in the house,” she says.
“We wanted to provide a very good base for happy future owners, so they can move in and put their own stamp and personality on the space. With loads of space and natural light that makes it perfect for entertaining friends, we are delighted to see as many people as possible on auction day to support the Salvation Army Australia.
