Some of alsoCAN architects' residential work includes a commercial component; from home offices to mixed use developments with cafés under apartment buildings. We are familiar with the complexities of mixed use construction, fire rating between different uses & managing consultant teams.

alsoCAN has collaborated with developers & project managers on institutional projects such as school multi-purpose halls & commercial projects. We've also designed stand alone commercial buildings & shop fitouts for hairdressers & hospitality tenancies for owner operators.

Builders compliment us on the high quality of our construction drawings, so you know that what we design will be built as we envisage it. They recommend their clients to us & ask us to design for them. The office for Figurehead Constructions we designed has a roof deck with city views for Friday night drinks & barbeques. It's the part of the building they love most.

We designed an office for Figurehead Constructions on a pocket-sized block at 70 Adam St, Burnley. They love the staff room and roof deck with city views.

A pro bono project on the drawing board. We're putting together ideas to cheaply convert a van to sell craftwork by Mozambique women to improve their lives, using standard off the shelf objects like ladders.

Rent the alsoCAN home office
We have recently relocated to Launceston where Dave will be Associate Professor at UTAS, so you can rent our home office in Richmond. Jane will be commuting to Melbourne regularly so we will be designing for both Melbourne and Launceston.
