house of card was originally designed for disaster relief housing and measures 10ft tall x 8ft wide x 12ft deep. Founder, Georgia Hopkins, first took this wonderful structure to music festival SXSW in Texas, where she collaborated with an Australian coffee company in LA and Sounds Australia, to set up pop-up coffee house that promoted quality design, coffee, music and sustainability.
Then house of card went to an art exhibition in Santa Barbara, the Abbot Kinney Festival in Venice Beach, California and now it’s here in Oz-tray-lia! Georgia is creating a hotel out of the structure, soon to appear in a secret Melbourne location. She’s collaborating with local brands that share similar values around design and sustainability. While in Melbourne, house of card will also be a series of mini-dinner parties, with profits going to charity ‘Food for Thought’, founded by Ben Whittaker. Have a read of ben’s story here.
