a collection of buildings and projects making things:

for more inspiration, awareness and education in our communities, 

connecting locale to world through art, design and culture

At the heart the formerly glorious industrial area ,DAA , rejigged out of an old building.

 A new form out of the slants of conservation and preservation to present a space for conversation and silence; activity and rest; distraction and flow,  the space imbues an elemental play that strikes at boredom with versatility, and distraction with essence. 

Alternatively 'Crackzone',  DAA is a sphere were absurdity and practicality find each other; in material, form, and sensibility. The space will be activated by a collective of artists, designers and makers under the nebulous Cult Meraki as a place for artistic thrills, conversation, and deep living showcasing that creative praxis can be a critical tool for uplifting lifestyle. 

By filling a void, conception begins flowing an expanse of breath that holds space, action, memory ...


Revamping an old quarters from the 60's, the process started with marking walls X, giving way to a meticulous process of chipping through dense walls (typical of 40 - 60’s construction) to render most of the interior an open centre, with mezanine above, accessed by a sliver of concrete like 'cat stairs'. To stir various atmospheres, Daa carves a site for deep living, setting pace for creativity, learning, and lifestyle.


Large doors swing into a terrace screened by breeze blocks. This foyers into the main hall, or bends to the side of the building, along to the back terrace and workspace, or inside through the side door. At the hems of the live and work space, floor to beam window/doors line two facades, with high level windows on the other faces. After the terrace, the space unfolds the first zone for living or activities, a middle zone that can be sectioned of, and a third zone for utilities– the kitchen/ lab, storage and bathroom. 


The space senses to a psyche in progress. Flexing, forming, solidifying; transforming, inspired by the process of plaster work. Sequencing on contrast, the space pairs planes and plinths, solids and voids, straight and curved, flat and raised: Inspired by Daa Laura, muse in character, work and service.
