White Ribbon Walk
The White Ribbon 'Stand Up and Speak Out' event was held at Queenscliff SLSC on the 28th November. This was held to raise awareness for domestic violence and preventing men's violence against women. Hire a Hubby, Michael Regan and James Griffin, were all there in support of The White Ribbon. It was great to see such a positive group of people in support of this important issue Australia is facing. Queenscliff SLSC Initially this event was organised as a fundraising walk, however we got rained out in the recent Sydney storm, came to the rescue and accommodated this fundraising meet up.
To end men's violence against women we must stand up, speak out and act.
Silence and inaction will let this violence continue.

Project - Freshwater House
The MM+J Architects team continuously attends site visits, to ensure the construction and build of our projects are running smoothly and on time. We are there to overcome any hiccups that appear throughout the construction process.
We had another site visit to our Freshwater House 02 to complete a final check measure for all the door and window blinds from Divine Designs. Some great progress is happening with this project, our clients will be moved in by Christmas!
We are seeing a boom in the 'Parent Retreats' for our clients and within the larger architectural and design industry. It is a space for couples to unwind in a private space from the rest of the home. They usually consist of the bedroom, an ensuite, walk-in-robes and a study. These spaces are usually located on its own level of the home, comprising of separate rooms or open plan living. We have recently completed a parents retreat at our Balgowlah 01 House. For this project, the parents retreat consisted of separate rooms. A master bedroom, ensuite, large walk-in-robe and a study, made up the parents retreat. Our clients wanted to keep all rooms located off the hallway, planning for the study to eventually be used as a newborn baby's room. We always plan for our clients future needs and uses when designing their home, to create a forever home.

High School Work Experience
At MM+J Architects we take part in student work experience programs. This opportunity gives high school students a taste of what working in an architectural firm is like. It can be a great way for students to help decide on their future career.
Last week we had Merlon in our office, he had a variety of tasks for the week that included site visits, attended meeting and learnt the basics of drafting by hand and on computer. We gave Merlon a mini project that was to research some ideas for a renovation of Manly Surf Life Saving Club, which is being rebuilt in 2021 due to lack of facilities and accessibility. We enjoyed having Merlon in our office for a week!
