“We recently met with Bec and Andy of Maytree Studios for one of their Summer Session and went along with an idea of what we thought we wanted to do for our renovation. By the time we had finished, our idea had been turned on it’s head and we left with a completely new option to consider. The two hours we spent with them was exceptional value for money and we recommend anybody considering a renovation to try the Summer Session….we also loved the wine and beer”

— Scott & Caroline

Back by popular demand, Winter Warmer Workshops are here!

What is a Winter Warmer Workshop? 

Thinking about renovating but don’t know where to start?  Our Winter Warmer Workshop is a two hour workshop aimed at helping you get the basics right – from environmental considerations, to colour & material ideas, to planning and spatial problem solving. Our follow up email spells out the outcomes our of our discussion and arms you with what you need to think about, who you need to contact and any other tips or tricks we can give you.  We welcome any size projects! From bathrooms to carports to large renovations and new builds, we are inviting the public to bring along their project and get the best of our training in their hot little hands.

Over January and February we ran our 2020 Summer Sessions which sold out.  We had a number of project types come through our doors, from small kitchen renovations, to master planning ideas, right through to a brand spanking new beach house! We had an absolute buzz helping so many families put a solid strategy in place for their project while meeting our collective passion to make great design within reach of all project budgets & types!

How much does it cost?

A Winter Warmers booking will cost you $350 +  GST.

Catch? None! Our passion is making good design within reach. Our Winter Sessions are our way of getting architectural thinking out of our studio and into the suburbs.
