ABSTRACT A major change is occurring in the way Australians live, as high-rise apartments are increasingly replacing low-density detached housing in Australian cities. In this piece we discuss recent pilot work undertaken that explores the links between apartment living and food practices in Melbourne, Australia. Detailed analysis is planned on this data, but we maintain the value of presenting this preliminary work as a praxis to promote the potential importance of this topic. Clarifying the relationship and unpacking the connections between apartment size, kitchen design, neighbourhood character, and food practices, will allow a set of recommendations to facilitate healthy eating which can be used by different levels of government and those concerned with public health, as well as those involved in apartment design and development and neighbourhood planning
