Revolutionizing house building

We are empowering people and communities to create better homes

AUAR (pronounced ‘our’) works at the intersection of design, technology, and community to provide a modular timber building system that uses robotics and automation to revolutionise house building

Our simple, accessible modular building system is engineered for automation and a sustainable, circular life cycle

We take a micro-factory approach for distributed, localized production that is efficient, and enables community participation in designing and building the homes they need

Starting with small or difficult to develop sites, including backyard studios, single family homes and meanwhile use, we are looking for ambitious developers and clients


We have 15+ years of experience in architecture, design, systems design, computer science, community engagement, manufacturing and robotics
