WHAT DOES a mi shack FEEL LIKE?
Have stayed in houses all over the world ... it is by far the best.
WOW is the word that came out everyone's mouth when we entered this house.
Where do I start with what we like about the house...in short ‘everything’!!!
We can't believe it's ours!
Everyone should have a mi shack!
We were genuinely blown away when we set eyes on the house.
The house was stunning.
A sublime experience.
WHY MI SHACK?
the home design revolution.
mi = modular integrated shack = home
Are you looking for a faster, more efficient and easy to understand way for an architect to design your home?
Then mi shack is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Let us welcome you to a new way to create architecture simply.
〈 TAKE IT FOR A SPIN 〉
HOW DO WE DO IT?
WHERE BEAUTY AND EFFICIENCY MEET
mi shack is a new system of modular architecture that uses prefabricated and in-situ construction methods to create design-led architecture in a timely and cost-efficient manner with minimal hassle and fuss.
By automating an architects design process into a system of predefined modules known as ‘smart zones’ mi shack creates design-led soulful architecture with more surety of outcome than a custom design process.
Moreover, these versatile ‘smart zones’ can flip, slide, spin and float into any number of combinations on flat or inclined slopes, keeping every mi shack unique just like a custom design.
The zones themselves are very flexible and can be easily fine-tuned to suit your individual needs as it is a ‘design system’ not a predesigned home. Predesigned homes are not designed for a particular site and therefore can become very limiting in being able to achieve such things as good solar passive design, with a ‘design system’ however we can tailor your solution to suit your particular site conditions.
EVERY MI SHACK IS UNIQUE
Create your Shack Map!
Select your zone layouts.
Pick your style.
Choose your vibe.
It all starts with Map iT where we create a simple ‘shack map’ layout on your site to quickly test it at scale based on your brief.
Once the shack map is finalised we then select internal layouts from our range to define the internal fit out and flow of your shack in Zone iT
Now your shack is ready for modelling into a full 3D concept design that you will be able to walk through virtually on your smartphone, smart tablet, laptop and/or desktop PC as we Style iT
During this phase, we define the doors and windows, mass the style of roof you have selected and conduct solar studies to test solar penetration for good passive solar design.
In the final design phase Pimp iT … as the name suggests … we ‘Pimp your Shack!’.
The normally onerous task of making selections is made easy via our catalogue of pre-selected fixtures, finishes and, fittings that can save you the stress and hassle of juggling and deciding from endless options.
You can, of course also, make your own selections, not in our catalogue. It’s up to you at the end of the day how you want to ‘Pimp your Shack!’
Simple Design + Simple Construction = Less Stress
To construct your shack our partner builders use an uncomplicated hybrid of prefabricated and site-built elements to build your shack with minimum hassle and fuss. By combining simple design with simple construction methods we mitigate complications and create greater potential for the process to run smoothly throughout all phases.
It is ‘much less complicated’ to create architecture this way and it offers more surety from beginning to end. A custom process, by comparison, is full of unknowns and is, therefore, more prone to time and cost blowouts. With a pre-defined system, you have an easier way to keep time and cost in check throughout all phases.
By using a system with pre-defined elements we can be far more time and cost efficient than a custom design process. This allows us to reduce our design fees, create more surety of final build cost and deliver your home with much less stress, hassle and fuss, so you can just enjoy the fun bits!
Architecture is much more than building design, it is an art form whose touch has the power to uplift, enrich and inspire you daily.
By drawing inspiration from early modernist and mid-century architecture we create timeless sanctuaries to nurture your soul with every day.
This is architecture for a new century.
