Our wide range of seminars are FREE to attend and are perfect opportunities to learn from specialists in their fields before embarking on your project. We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to the best in the business.
The major focus for the design of your new home or renovation should be your lifestyle. Getting to the heart of how you want to live in the home will provide a concrete foundation for the design principles.
In creating your design, an architect brings together their expert knowledge and understanding of cost, size, materials, and energy efficiency. A thorough awareness of aspect and location underpins the ultimate success of the project.
Architect Dion Seminara will, through his proven 6 Step Process, highlight the factors that must be investigated to ensure your project’s success. Dion will showcase some of his completed projects and inspire you to get started on yours.
The challenge to everyone building or renovating is how to get their old furniture and accessories to unite with their new décor.
Decorating is about defining your style, colour, theme and Soul and balancing line, texture, scale and proportion. You don’t need to spend big on a whole new décor when you can learn how to unite it, DIY it and save time and money.
Your walls are the key and art turns the lock. Practise your new understanding in workshop with Customised Artwork Specialist and Decorator, Sharron Tancred, and learn to see your space from a whole new perspective!
If you're building a new home or renovating an existing one you don't have to be restricted by your budget. Using the latest building materials you can create exciting architectural designs that won't break your budget.

Richard Kennedy is an architect and builder with over 450 projects completed. His graphically illustrated presentation will cover Planning and Design, Orientation, Size and Shape, and Serviced Areas.
Do you need to build at all? Could you build within the existing building? How will your decisions impact on air flow, natural light and the functionality of the space?
Learn how orientation is the single most important factor which effects your energy costs and atmosphere within the interior, how Size and Shape can alter the cost of construction significantly, and uncover the secrets to making Kitchens and Bathrooms look clean and fresh. Bring along your sketches and plans for discussion.
What a fantastic resource with everything for our kitchen renovation under one roof. We couldn't have done it without you, and will definitely be back when we tackle the bathrooms next.
I have made a point of attending a wide range of your seminars and have to say that the quality of the presenters, their expertise and inspiration all has flown through in our building project.
We couldn't be happier with our new home, and highly recommend that anyone building or renovating should visit your centre and attend those excellent seminars.
During our building project we must have visited your centre a dozen times or more. Not only is the quality of the showrooms and displays excellent but every time we came back there was something new.
What's more is the absolute convenience of the experience and with free entry and parking you will certainly see us again.
