THE DREAM HOME WORKSHOP
Renovating, Building, Buying or Dreaming?
Join us at SGArch for a one day workshop and learn how to map your perfect place.
Hands-on exercises / Architectural Insights / Practical Outcomes
Our homes should be our haven, a place where we can be truly ourselves. They should support our everyday lives and reflect our deepest values. They should be well made, work beautifully and feel bloody amazing. That’s what we think – how about you?
This full day workshop is designed to give you the space, structure and resources to define what ‘Dream Home’ means to you. Set in a suitably inspiring environment, our architects guide you through the step-by-step process of exploring, clarifying and defining your uniquely personal set of ‘Dream Home’ requirements.
At our Workshop you will learn;
> how to capture your architectural character
> ‘tricks of the trade’ architects use to bring spaces to life
> how to create a dynamic map of your spatial needs
> tips on how to make your Dream Home ‘smarter not larger’
> how to consolidate your insights into a structured brief
"Dear Anna and Samara, Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for yesterday's workshop. I enjoyed every minute of it. Your beautiful office space overlooking the forest of trees and river below was such a calming place to spend the day. I feel much better about our future renovation plans. Now maybe I can have a few more things incorporated in our home than I thought!"
"How often do you set aside a day to really explore your needs, wants and desires of the space you live and love in? Not only did you demystify architecture speak, you validated my human needs for light, space, structure and design with purpose as totally legit, and necessary for healthy living. Really great, enlightening day that goes beyond a mood board straight to the heart of making a happy, functional, inspiring home. Thanks for a great day Samara and Anna!"
"Thanks Sam and Anna for a wonderful day. The Dream Home Workshop has opened my eyes and inspired me to look at home improvement/renovating/ building and buying in a whole new light"
"Hi Anna and Samara, a quick note to say thanks for the workshop a couple of weeks ago. It has got me right into the mood of developing our "brief", I look forward to sharing with you the finished product and working with you to turn it into a reality.”

“I loved seeing how my ideas emerged, evolved and connected over the day. The workshop took my small seed of an idea and expanded it to the point I had colour, space and storage as well as a better understanding of my family’s needs now and in the future”
"We loved hearing about others ideas, even when they were quite different to our own. It was great having people at different stages in their lives, with different needs – it made me think about how our needs might change over time. We were surprised at how relevant it was for us even now, in our rental. I went home and re-arranged several rooms to make them work better for us.
We had a FANTASTIC time and haven’t stopped talking about it since! Loved it! I would *totally* recommend your workshop to anyone thinking of renovating or building - it was wonderful to discuss our ideas about design with talented architects who listen”
