The VISION

In an exciting leap, BuildHer's latest development is a completely unique model - a Community Collaboration Project with the "BuildHer8".

Along with Rebeka and Kribashini, six DevelopHer Masterclass graduates joined forces to create two architecturally different, yet complementary and sustainable homes, by pushing the traditional boundaries associated with property development in Melbourne’s leafy northern suburb of Fairfield.

Ben Callery Architects designed two houses, each with their own individualistic flair. The vision for each home was always to create distinct spaces that will speak to the homebuyers’ sense of identity.

Using clean, fresh and contemporary lines, a sense of openness and an abundance of natural light, the look will be softened by materials and finishes reflective of north-side style: sophistication and edginess served with a side of character and personality.

The collaboration model lends itself to a unique opportunity for communal involvement, from planning and funding to design and construction, BuildHer Collective will track each step of the project on this exciting journey!

web teaching series

8 Part renovation series
COMING SOON!

Every reno has its challenges, the good, the bad and well, the ugly ducklings usually turn into beautiful swans.

Not one's to shy away from keeping it real, we'll be sharing the highs and lows, while using our unique collaborative building process to really get into the details of our design thinking and the realities of pulling together a project like this.

Our aim is pretty simple; empower anyone interested in renovating and building with the right tools, know-how and a few tips and tricks along the way.

We know that many of you are thinking about tackling their own dream home renovation or developing for profit, and our 8-part renovation series will provide you with not only the inspiration you need to get your creative juices flowing but the right tools, knowledge and know how to start your own project and get it right the first time.

Over the 8 episodes we'll take you through the backstory, demolition and take you right through the construction process to lock-up, get deep into the interior and cabinetry design and finish with the big reveal of the Rathmines South and North homes - it's going to be FUN!
