During our workshops we sought seven households who were:
seriously interested in purchasing one of the seven homes in Stage 1 (note: currently there is one dwelling left in stage 1, as 6 of the properties have already been reserved)
comfortable that the project timeline meets their expectations
The workshops provided the opportunity to:
work with the architects and project team to customise the homes
learn about the philosophy behind The Paddock
be involved in decisions about features they’d like to have in the shared building and outdoor spaces.
Who ran the workshops?
Remi Rauline, Project Manager of The Paddock, facilitated each workshop.
Members of The Paddock project team and external experts were involved in each workshop, depending on the topics discussed.

Workshop 3: Private spaces
