We create for changing cities.
Cities are changing and we’re changing with them. Noiascape create homes and spaces that enhance the idea of Modern Urban Living – we make living more personal yet more social, meaning your everyday rituals become more joyful and cultural. Noiascape challenge the idea that your private space is the end of your living experience, in a Noiascape building it’s just the beginning.
Ideas for modern urban living
Ideas for modern urban living
01 — Don’t Rent, Subscribe
Modern Urban Living is about subscription; It’s one payment taking care of bills, rent, furniture, cleaning and Wi-Fi. But it’s also having access to a range of shared spaces that allow you to work and socially interact from the place where you live. It allows you to be constantly engaged in an exchange of people, culture and ideas.
02 — You’re a Member
Living with Noiascape provides you with access to a network of spaces, people, community and ideas. This network is constantly growing and evolving, so your home extends from a single private space to a private space connected to a network of shared spaces. The Noiascape network includes informal learning, exhibitions and supper clubs. As members you can actively contribute to the culture of these spaces, so you inform the experience of where you live. If you have an idea tell us.
03 — Make the Everyday Joyful
Noiascape want to elevate the repeated nature of our everyday rituals, making connections between what you do and how you feel. Creating beauty in something everyday. We’ve designed an oversized bed that is a museum of memories, a micro-library designed to encourage the start of conversations, and a secret door giving access to a hidden living space. We use inventive spatial design to make the everyday things we all share more joyful.
04 — Create Your Neighbourhood
The spaces we create shape how cities and communities evolve. We combine new cultures with old, creating spaces for all types of resident, whether they’re from down the road or across the globe. You, the home you live in and the social spaces we’ve created, make the neighbourhood what it is. As a Noiascape Member you will play an active part in a network of people, community and experiences.
05 — Find an Audience
Are you an educator or creative or speaker or chef or entrepreneur? You can use Noiascape Social Spaces as a way to find your audience and contribute to your local culture. You can host a talk, an exhibition, a yoga class or whatever it is that you’d like to place in the city. Noiascape want to reclaim the city as a shared social place, so find an audience and contribute to your community.
Whether we’re designing a small living space, or a large mixed use project, we follow a set of beliefs and ideas.
We think carefully about the work we do. How it’s made, how you use it, what it means, and the relationship it has with the community it’s part of.
We’ll admit it: we’re idealists.
Make unique places, create unexpected encounters.
Create buildings that talk to their surroundings, places for old cultures to live and new cultures to thrive. Unique and unexpected.
Difference creates preference.
Don’t follow suit. Offer alternatives and improve things. Change habits, open up possibilities and see the value in difference. Commit to creation not repetition.
Create long term and permanent not short term and transient.
Reinvest, reassess, revisit and reappraise spaces. In a world of the short term fix, be proud of a long term fixation.
Uniquity over ubiquity.
Find, meet, get to know and collaborate with craftspeople to create one-off, unique pieces. Don’t control the process, allow them to take control. Stand back and admire their work.
Invent Beautiful Everyday Rituals.
Opening a simple carton of juice can be a difficult process. An object so simple and everyday is therefore imbued with a new meaning. You try to open it, it’s difficult, it tears and the contents spill. This is your everyday ritual created by the failure of an object. So let’s invent some new positive everyday rituals, created by good design rather than bad. Maybe that’s the smell as you arrive somewhere, the feeling of taking off your shoes, the quietness of a space to eat or sit. We want to elevate the repeated nature of our everyday, making connections between what you do and how you feel. Creating beauty in something everyday.
We get to know the people using our spaces. We mark special occasions, we remember birthdays and give welcome gifts. We make living a human experience.
Don’t employ, collaborate.
We’re collaborators, not ‘staff’. We’re all part of the process and essential to its direction.
Let change develop you.
Think of change before development. Change to improve, innovate and get to ‘better’.
Be creative with investment and resources. Place beauty in some areas and function in others. Efficiency isn’t always the even spread of money but the clever use of it.
Assume everything is incomplete.
Keep investing and challenging. This manifesto is incomplete. Each new project will create new ideas that will add to it. Like you and us, it grows.
