AT SURROUNDINGS, WE TAKE A HUMAN-CENTRED APPROACH THAT PUTS YOU AT THE HEART OF YOUR HOME DESIGN. TO CREATE A SPACE THAT IS UNIQUELY YOURS, WE DON'T START WITH WHAT AN ARCHITECT HAS IN MIND, WE START WITH YOU.
Welcome to HOME – a brilliant program that allows us to understand you and your relationship with space. Through a series of fun and enlightening exercises and activities, HOME will get to know you – your values, favourite experiences and collective rituals; your lifestyle, inspirations and dreams. We can then take these insights to design a space you will love to call home, both today and tomorrow.
This unique workshop is a group session privately run for you. Time is spent on your life experiences and values and how those factors influence the decisions you make about the layout and design of your home. The workshop will empower you to communicate with us in a more comprehensive way about which elements are essential to your space.
“GAIN INSIGHT INTO WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU AND THE PEOPLE WITH WHOM YOU SHARE YOUR SPACE AND YOUR LIFE.”
We like to involve all the people who will live in your home in our workshop so we can centre our design on you all. Our workshops cater for up to 6 people, as our exercises focus on your relationship to home they can also be done without a particular project or site in mind, you may like to invite some of your regular guests or extended family to join in as well.
The program includes a 3-4 hour workshop and a report suitable to communicate your vision to architects, builders or a draftsperson.
