WHAT DOES a mi shack FEEL LIKE?
Relaxing and luxurious at the same time.
A sublime experience.
Everyone remarks on how great the spaces are to live in.
WOW ... came out everyone's mouth when we entered.
Stayed in houses all over the world ... it is by far the best.
We were ... blown away when we set eyes on the house.
What we like about the house ... in short ‘everything’!!!
We can't believe it's ours!
Everyone should have a mi shack!
WHY MI SHACK?
mi = modular integrated shack = home
Are you looking for an easier way to have an architect design your home?
Then mi shack is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Welcome to a new simpler way to create architecture.
〈 TAKE IT FOR A SPIN 〉
HOW DO WE DO IT?
WHERE BEAUTY AND EFFICIENCY MEET
At mi shack, we have turned the delivery of architecture upside down by making it product-based as opposed to service-based via a unique modular design system of zones that packages the design process into standard pre-defined elements.
These zones are versatile, they can flip, slide, spin and float into any number of combinations under two standard roof types keeping every mi shack unique.
By systemizing the architect design process we can create design-led soulful architecture with more surety of outcome than a custom design process.
EVERY MI SHACK IS UNIQUE
Create your Shack Map!
Select your zone layouts.
Pick your style.
Choose your vibe.
This is 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 select internal layout templates from our range to define the internal fit-out and flow of your shack.
Now your shack is ready for modeling 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.
During this phase, we define the doors and windows, mass the style of roof and conduct solar studies to test solar penetration for a good passive solar design.
The final design phase … 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 may of course also make your own selections, not from 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 a simple hybrid construction method 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 stages.
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 set our design fees, create more surety of final build cost from the start and deliver your home with much less stress, hassle, and fuss.
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.
