Residents start their homeowner journey at 38 Albermarle Street, Kensington

0112023 ASSEMBLE Newspage Housewarming at 38 Albermarle 2560x1440 Ben Moynihan 01

To warm the building, we held a housewarming with our residents to welcome them home.

Following a Smoking Ceremony by Wurundjeri man Daniel Ross, celebrations moved to the ground floor at Cassette for this milestone occasion for residents and the Assemble team alike. As an extended living space for our residents, hosting the first community bash downstairs at Cassette was the ideal spot to come together to celebrate and connect.

Managing Director Kris Daff thanked residents for their belief in the pilot Assemble Futures project and our Head of Operations Nicola Fawl spoke about the emerging community connection she sees happening day to day. Our residents got to know each other through the construction process, connecting over a shared desire for stable housing, and moved into their homes with already forged connections through the efforts of our community engagement team.

As a little housewarming gift, our Head Chef Laura jarred some homemade jams with produce from local Rayners Orchard, and housewarming gifts from our partners to get them through their first few weeks in their new homes.
