Concept Space: A better way to live


Collaboration between HouseLab and Shade Factor

HouseLab is an online content management system that's set to revolutionise handovers and home management for builders, architects and homeowners. They provide a secure digital hub for everyoone involved in the build to upload and store all relevant information including plans, permits and warranties.

Shade Factor was approached by HouseLab to become a content partner, providing expert advice on sun shading solutions. We collaborated with Fremantle based Philip Stekskal Architecture in their concept space design focusing on the 'Missing Middle' in building planning, referring to low-rise medium density developments in walkable neighbourhoods. The brief is to design a micro-community on a 750m² block arranged around a centralised communal space that allows individuals to engage and interact with one another.


Sun Shading Systems over glass structures & patios

We decided to feature our Climara W20 Conservatory Awning: a stylish awning that features the Warema Secudrive® guidance system ensuring perfect fabric tension during extension and retraction. Engineered with a slimline cassette and max coverage of 24m² the Climara W20 is suited for fitment over glazed roofs or patio areas to modulate sun exposure, glare, and heat control. It also has the option to add an inbuilt weather sensor that measures sun, precipitation and wind.
