More friends. More fun. More food. This biannual weekend at Commonground has become an institution for Urban Coup, where we get to have quality community time, a good dose of nature and the magic flows. So lucky to have the support of this wonderful Commonground community :)

First 'Near & Tall' Design Workshop

Submitted by Urban Coup on Tue, 14/11/2017 - 22:21

This day will stand out in my memory as one of the most joyous days of my life. Urban Coup has cracked on, through thick and this with perpetual faith that we would make this project work. So many twists and turns in the road. So many ups and downs. At this point in the journey we stand together stronger than ever: 24 committed Unit Holders, with Jeremy McLoad of Breathe Architecture / Nightingale Housing, Michael Roper and Nick James of Architecture Architecture insolidarity, knowing we now had the right team to complete this project. Exhilerating stuff!

Social Saunter – Checking out the West

Submitted by Urban Coup on Sat, 25/07/2015 - 20:29

Recently, some members living west of the CBD had come across a property they thought may be of interest to coupers. Although other locations have had a higher priority for Urban Coup in the past, it was decided to organise a social saunter to have a look at West Footscray as an introduction for those unfamiliar or curious to know more about this area and its possible alignment to Urban Coup’s vision.
