Home Design

Helping you design a home that allows wildlife to keep theirs too
homelife meets wildlife
We believe

Every Choice Counts

Every choice you make in your home design, from layout to the materials and even the season of construction has a ripple effect on global biodiversity. For instance, the typical design/build process causes deforestation when logging for hardwood, forcing hundreds of birds to abandon their nests, and causes ocean pollution noise during material transport, preventing whales from warning their young of a predator. By understanding the impact of your choices before you make them, you have the power to protect the homes of wildlife while creating your very own. Wildlifeel at Home is here to help.

Our Signature
Conservation-Based Design/Build Practices

We are the wildlife-friendly home design studio – offering conservation-based consultancy and design services. Our methods are in balance with wildlife conservation efforts ensuring one home is no longer sacrificed for the other to exist.

Our aim is to make the impact of your options vividly understood. With a meticulous focus on the ‘Ripple Effect’ as our guiding design philosophy, we carefully study every design consideration for its impact on local and global biodiversity until we strike the right balance of give and take.

We help you create a beautiful and sustainable home that does not destroy wildlife habitats in the process.

Your home design is connected to the homes of countless species. We share wildlife stories that will unfold due to your choices well before they’re made. This will empower you to make final decisions that truly align with your most compassionate values so you can help preserve local and global habitats for wildlife.

Each project supports a client-chosen conservation initiative, guided by Owner-Designer Ashley, furthering the mission to combat natural habitat loss from within an industry that has historically contributed to it. At Wildlifeel at Home, we believe in designing homes that stand as a symbols of harmonious coexistence with the natural world.

The design/build industry accounts

for 50% of all

habitat destruction

And it’s the 2nd leading cause of biodiversity loss, after climate change, putting one million species at risk of extinction.

As potential clients, it’s crucial to recognize the inadvertent contribution to this cause through conventional design choices. However, you wield the power to shift this narrative. Making informed decisions in your home design journey empowers you to contribute positively.

Choose sustainable materials, support conservation-based practices, and become a vital force in preserving biodiversity. Your decisions matter in creating a ripple effect that resonates far beyond the confines of your home. Each conscious choice serves as a step towards a future where homes thrive without compromising the habitats of countless species.

We adore all that encompasses the concept of Home, for people and planet. And we equally adore wildlife, all those who need us to speak up and take action to empower their wellbeing. We have tied this with our expertise because we want you to understand your impact and confidently own your ripple effect!
