Where the heart is.

Suncorp: “One House” - 60s

Following a year in which thousands of Australians saw their homes damaged by extreme weather, insurers Suncorp have taken a scientific approach to limiting further destruction. Partnering with academics from James Cook University, among others, the brand have created a prototype home which offers insights into preventative architecture, safety measures, and similar innovations.

The results are spelled out in explosive fashion by this intriguing film from The Glue Society, in which the house is battered with torrential rain, hurricane winds, and a barrage of sparks to simulate 2020's devastating wildfires. It makes for a compelling watch—one which is both sobering and inspires hope for better protected homes in future.
