The Scenario:

We love designing Kitchens! Kitchens are (or should be) the heart and soul of your home. We believe that a kitchen should be beautiful to look at as well as a pleasure to cook and entertain in? A space that is designed just for you and your lifestyle. It must have that wow factor and a dash of confidence and personality (or seriously, why even bother)! Importantly, a kitchen needs to be designed to fit your budget. The good news is a custom kitchen does not need to cost the earth to get amazing results.

As architects, we have designed and overseen the construction of many homes - ranging from minor internal alterations, significant renovations / extensions through to new homes. As a result we have a deep understanding of what makes a space feel good, how to tailor a space to fit you, your lifestyle, your family - now and into the future.

 We think designing is so much more fun if you have someone to share it with, so for this workshop we are offering our guests the opportunity to bring along one additional person who will be also be a decision maker in your project - which also makes it alot easier than having to relay everything you've just learnt!

The workshop is run as a small group to ensure everyone has enough air time to discuss their specific project requirements in an informative, hands-on and relaxed way. In this workshop we share our knowledge and expertise to help you design your dream kitchen!

What you'll learn:

  • Work though with you one-on-one how best to layout your kitchen to suit your house, brief and budget
  • Help you to prioritise where to pull back and where to splurge
  • We give you the run down on many of the cabinetry materials and finishes options available and suitable for your project and budget. 
  • We share our knowledge and experience in the benefits of using one product over another.
  •  Innovative kitchen design ideas, space savers and storage solutions
  • The common mistakes and how to avoid them
  • How to convey this information to your builder or cabinet maker in a clear, concise way so it can be followed. 

What is included:

  • Materials table for you to touch and feel the products we commonly use and some extra examples for you to take home after the session.
  • A list of our recommended suppliers and showrooms if you wish to explore options further following the session 
  • A blank finishes schedule template to help you put together your final selections in a clear and concise way so it can be understood and followed by your builder, cabinet maker etc.
  • We will provide morning tea incl. tea, coffee, and other refreshments available throughout the session (we will be in touch prior to the event to confirm any dietary requirements).

What you'll need to bring:

  • Your own laptop or Tablet with your saved interior inspiration images (we have wi-fi for you to use), please organize your images into rooms or categories prior to the session ie. Kitchen, Bathroom, Cabinetry etc.
  • If an existing house, photos of the existing spaces - inside and outside.
  • Proposed Floor Plans of the new house or extension, also bring a printed copy if possible.
  • If you have already selected any of your finishes prior to this workshop ie. Carpet or tiles, please bring a sample with you or take a good quality photo to share.
  • A work book and pens to take down any notes. Please note: We will not be sharing any notes following the session.

The Details:

Meeting Location: Industry Building Hub; 87 Gladstone St, South Melbourne.

Further details will be sent out to participants via. email a few days before the workshop.

Please Note: This event requires a minimum 6 attendees / groups to run. If we do not meet this minimum amount, the event will not run and all paid ticket holders at that point will be fully refunded.
