“Cubby Life” sets new record in the Kids Cubby Challenge

Media Release 2 April 2012


“Cubby Life”, the cubby designed by Six Degrees Architects and built by Ducon has taken the Kids Under Cover Cubby Challenge to new fundraising heights.

“Cubby Life” raised $12,500 for the charity, setting a new record for this event.

Managing Director Peter Mason was extremely delighted with the result, commenting that it was fantastic to see the public voting with their cheque book.

We were delighted to be able to support the Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge as it allowed Ducon and 6 Degrees to use our skills to service kids in need. We wanted to create a design with 6 Degrees that encouraged kids to use their imaginations while also using a sustainable design. We also want to thank our great suppliers that helped make this cubby possible”


Ducon is proud to be part of the challenge; which raised over $55,000 for at risk youth.

The innovation and design of each of the 5 cubbies showed what a world class event the Cubby Challenge is and Peter hopes that it will encourage more leading architects and builders from across Australia to take part next year.


“Cubby Life” was recognized for its sustainability, receiving the “Eco Friendly” award for its use of the self-watering living garden wall and recycled materials. The cubby was purchased at the live auction by a family in Northcote, and will provide a wonderful sanctuary for years to come.


The Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge brings together award winning architects and builders to design, build and decorate highly creative and unique children's cubbies for public viewing and subsequent raffle and auction at the Melbourne International Flower Show each year.
