What We Are About

Melbourne Botanical Gardens


We hope to inspire some creative action with practical, creative problem-solving suggestions that will get you thinking, with the intent of improving your quality of life wherever you may live.  Maybe our suggestions, ideas, projects and “solutions” can be your starting points to explore alternative paths or define/redefine your problem or improve or sustain your living environment.
Explore, Design, Build is an adjunct and an introduction to our core business – real estate marketing and, the promotion of sustainable lifestyles and liveable communities.  We welcome your interaction and invite you to visit our websites: coupersrealty.com.au; moonahlinksproperty.com.au and new-buildhousing.com.au .


Our living environment is everywhere – in the building we inhabit, the street in which we live, the shops we visit, our workplace, our city, where we go on vacation, where we play … ;  and it is there 24/7.

Of course, this is obvious but how often do we give our living environment any thought despite it being such a large part of our lives?

Making Use of Design Thinking

Architects use a formal method of design thinking to resolve problems and create sustainable solutions in the built environment.
We can use design thinking processes to solve problems and address concerns in our everyday lives and our living environments by:

  • considering our present situation and our preferred future goal or improved situation and,
  • exploring a number of alternative solutions simultaneously.
