The contestants of popular Australian TV show The Block faced their biggest building challenge ever in 2019, when they set out to convert the delapitaded Oslo Hostel in Melbourne, into luxury flats. On several occasions during the show, it looked like the contestants would not be able to finish the build, as their budgets ran dry and their tempers high, but the end result is truly impressive. We invite you to discover the winning design of the 2019 edition, created by contestants Tess and Luke.

The renovated Oslo Hostel

the building featured in the block 2019

Before the 2019 edition of the TV show, the Oslo Hostel was just an old, delapidated building in a nice neighbourhood. Today, the building is completely refurbished, and home to five, highly desirable luxury flats. All of the flats feature an elegant and space-saving Cibes A5000 platform lift to offer premium everyday comfort. All platform lifts were prospected and sold by Cibes distributor Octagon Lifts, and installed by their partner Nordic Elevators.
