〈 TAKE IT FOR A SPIN 〉
why mi shack?
Q. Are you passionate about architecture and good design ?
Q. Uninspired by the low quality designs that builders offer ?
A. Then mi shack is for you !
Located in Perth and the South West of Western Australia, mi shack was created to give design savvy people like you affordable access to the life enhancing benefits of considered architecture through rethinking the modular homes model and presenting it as an architect-led design system. There is an endemic lack of cost conscious options for those who desire design-led architecture but who cannot afford the luxury and expense of engaging an architect to create a fully customised individual home. It is clear therefore that a viable design alternative with a higher degree of budget surety is needed for this design savvy client where cost is their overriding factor. Our mandate is to give this client the way out they need to live, love and shack up the way they really want too.
We cannot compete cost wise with the low end project home market and we are not trying too in any way, they are cheap for a reason and the reason is not design based but numbers based, you get what you pay for so to speak. At mi shack we have taken a ‘middle of the market’ approach to building cost to create affordable design-led outcomes that gives more people access to the benefits of architecture. It is the touch of architecture that elevates a home into something special and life enriching. This is a quality that is recognised by designers and non-designers alike and one that cannot be replicated by a purely numbers approach.
Authentic architecture is needed to put the soul back into our streets, hence at mi shack we’re on a mission to ‘bring back the shack’ a term which evokes sanctuary, connection and contentment in simple pleasures. We put ‘good design’ (life enhancing style) before ‘numbers’ (cheap and soul destroying) in a balanced and considered way to create a better lifestyle that you can enjoy ‘now’. It is important to us that more people are able to live, love and shack up in a home that has soul, one that enhances and inspires their daily living and that of the community at large by creating a higher standard of aesthetics for all to enjoy.
how do WE DO it?
By automating an architects design process via a flexible modular system of predefined ‘smart zones’ mi shack creates architecture within a predetermined budget range, simply and cost effectively.
Our 4 Step System incorporates,
Map iT = 7x predefined smart zones to map out your shack.
Zone iT = A range of predefined yet flexible internal layouts to fit out each zone.
Style iT = 2x ‘simply sexy’ roof styles to create your desired aesthetic.
Pimp iT = A groovy range of fixtures, finishes and fittings to pimp your shack.
* The smart zones can flip, slide, glide, mirror, rotate, float, expand and retract to suit any number of situations, whether that be single or multiple storey or flat or inclined sites.
Its ‘much less complicated’ to have architecture this way compared to a fully custom approach which can be fraught with time and cost blowouts as there are many more unknowns. The key difference with the our system is that it allows you to arrange these elements into endless combinations – this keeps every mishack ‘original’ and bespoke in feel – every combination creates a different vibe that is unique to you.
Its a new way to design your home that has more surety of outcome from beginning to end.
Additionally, mi shack also works similarly to fully prefab by utilising a hybrid of prefabricated and site built elements. An important difference however is that we are not restricted by the same transportation logistics, factory processes, lead times and installation requirements that govern fully prefabricated architecture. Our product can be assembled and built by any quality builder that services your region, giving mi shack much more range and flexibility.
mi shack lets you live, love and shack up the way you really want to – with soul.
