Our Mission

…we strive to make the best architectural model kits we can. They are we hope something you will enjoy building and take pride in owning, it is after all something you have built yourself. We hope they become one of your valued possessions next to that stone you kicked all the way home from school when you were 10 and that very special feather.

Like you we care about the environment and our impact upon it. Where possible our materials are sustainably sourced and our production process produces little to no waste. Our models have a truth to the materials they are made from and the look and feel that they could have come from the architects own office. We do extensive research on the buildings we decide to develop, cross referencing sketches, drawings and photographs. Our objective is to capture the lines and details of a building, the architects true vision but in miniature.

About Us

Marcus spent his childhood skating on frozen ponds, throwing snowballs and using hay bales to build dens in the English countryside. He quickly discovered that skating and snowball throwing held limited career opportunities so he focused instead on his building skills.

After studying engineering then three dimensional design at college, Marcus began an international career that would take him from Japan to Hong Kong to the USA, across Australia and finally to Brisbane in Queensland, where he now runs his own design company. Creating little houses seemed like a natural extension to his love of making things, mixing textures and materials.

Marcus and his family live in an old Queenslander that’s slowly being renovated. Little Buildings, he has found, are far easier to tinker with than big ones…

Thank You all

We have embarked on a couple of Kickstarter campaigns to date. Your support has lightened the load and helped us get a couple of our models into production.

Kickstarter is a fantastic way to showcase a product and connect to likeminded people. Through Kickstarter we have made many new friends.
