Designs for Living, turning display villages into homes.

Arkee Creative and Designs for Living Furniture have produced for Orbit Homes, exciting new homes at both Point Cook and Craigieburn display villages.

Orbit Homes, one of Australias most successful new home builders were looking to capture a wider demographic for new home purchasers.  Arkee approached the brief to create a real point of difference by revitalising the display product detail and working with Designs for Living Furniture, a sister company to deliver the broader vision of a new direction in furnishing and styling.

By focusing on an editorial style and moving away from the staged, formal and repetitive interiors being offered in other housing product in the display villages, Arkee and Designs for Living have delivered the point of difference for Orbit Homes.
