Housescape 001 Workshop

Are you dreaming your future house, about to buy a house, looking to change your current space or considering a renovation or build? 

Join us and explore your ideal house.

Perfect for all stages. renters dreaming ahead, first home buyers, couples buying their first home, people needing to expand for their family, empty nesters looking to reconfigure or move and seachangers.

We will guide you through a series of exercises that will focus on the experiences you enjoy and establish a brief to create spaces that will be the ideal habitat for you. Together we go on a journey to explore the individuals within your space, what you enjoy, the experiences you have and how you would like to live. Designed to be participatory and ideas generating - explore the possiblities and kick start your project with the depth it deserves.


The houses you know

We take a flashback and explore the houses you have experienced.

You now

We capture how you live now and where you want to head


We explore and capture the experiences and rituals you share with your family and friends in your home.


We project forward and you predict how your house and living might unfold over time. 


We explore spatial elements, such as groundedness, elevation, enclosure and openess to find your preferences. 


We generate your key experiences and rituals you would like in your house.


The finale exercise where it all comes together!
