Launched by Australian actor and producer Dustin Clare, Shelter features 200 hours of architecture and design programming
If you reached the end of your Netflix queue while sheltering in place and aren’t sure what streaming service to try next, it might be time to consider Shelter—a new platform with a curated catalogue of shows and movies intended for design fans. Envisioned by Australian actor and producer Dustin Clare (known to American audiences for his role on Starz’s Spartacus series), Shelter is the first streaming service solely dedicated to all things architecture and design. Clare and his wife worked to create the platform, which launched at the end of last week, for professional and amateur “designophiles” alike.
“My wife Camille and I really enjoy good-quality home, architecture, and lifestyle shows, and we notice[d] a lack of consistency and cohesion in finding that content,” Clare tells AD PRO via email. “So, we decided to go out and create a space for all that content to exist in the one place, and make sure it [met] a real [high] standard.”
As of now, Shelter has amassed 200 hours of streamable content of all shapes and sizes. That includes a film about Pritzker Prize winner Kevin Roche, Ecuadorian architecture documentary Hacer Mucho Con Poco (Do More With Less), and TV series The Art of Architecture, as well as other programs that will be licensed on a monthly basis. Through partnerships, original video content from the publications Dwell and Australia’s sustainability-minded Green Magazine will also live on Shelter.
