We had a great experience with Smallworks! They custom built our laneway home, and walked us through every step of the process – every team member helped make the process enjoyable and straightforward from design to permitting to building. We love the attention to detail in the design of our new house. Would highly recommend the Smallworks team to anyone looking to build a small space.Alice, Homeowner
It’s all in the details
We believe that every space should be designed to be beautiful, simple, and elegant. Our collaborative design process ensures that you’ll thrive in your home for years to come.
Each element of our homes is thoughtfully curated, reflecting the unparalleled craftsmanship and keen eye for detail.
Our core vision for interior design is an honest approach to materiality (if it looks like wood, it’s wood), simplicity, and understated elegance.
We work with you to make a home that honours the character of your family and the neighbourhood – either by blending in or standing out.
