House Conspiracy is a new community arts space in West End, Brisbane. Supported by Arts Queensland, the project provides a platform for emerging arts practitioners by offering a programme of residencies, events, and exhibitions, plus free workspace bookings for artists.

Unqualified Design Studio were selected to take part in the first round of residencies at the space, which took place in February 2017. During our time there we undertook a diversity of projects, ranging from concept proposals and competition entries to physical prototyping and built installations. This work was presented at the end of the residency period in a public exhibition.
Prior to the residency, UDS also contributed significant resources to the renovation of the house, helping to transform the space from a traditional Queensland home into a multi-use artspace. This included the refurbishment of living areas as artists' studios and input to the design and construction of a street-front parklet.
