Arckit is a ‘hands-on’ and ‘open-ended’ architectural building block platform consisting of unique components for spontaneously exploring and visualising your ideas in scale model form. Inspired by real modular building techniques, Arckit enables aspiring architects of all ages to build freely and without restrictions using a ‘professional-level’ design tool. Think of Arckit like any instrument, the more you become familiar with it, the more amazing creations you will bring to life.
Build the future
Greenscape Village is a fantastical land of colourful buildings, interesting streets and courtyards, magical streams, paths and flying machines, and a place full of ‘quirky environmentally conscious' characters and pets. Now, all we need is for you to help bring your idyllic village to life. (Scale to be interpreted by its user - Dreamer Scale). Ideal for Budding architects and visionaries from age 5 years old to freely explore building and the environment while encouraging unrestricted imagination and storytelling.

Learn while Playing
Arckit is the first company to ever receive the official STEAM Accreditation Stamp of Approval by the Toy Association of America and Dr. Amanda Gummer’s Good Play Guide™ (learn more here). At the very heart of Arckit is a truly ‘open-ended’ and ‘hands-on’ architectural model building tool that introduces a whole new method of learning and discovery while having fun building without restriction.
Today architecture is becoming increasingly recognised as a multi- disciplinary medium that not only teaches fundamental practical, social, environmental and STEAM subjects, it also encompasses the 5 C’s - Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Critical and Computational Thinking.
Our aim is to encourage our future designers and visionaries to thing freely, develop essential all-round skills and ultimately to help them to become positive change makers in society.
Bring it to life
There you’ll find wind turbines, solar panels and environmentally conscientious residents growing their own food, exercising in the park and whizzing around on their bikes and electric scooters. Now, all we need is for you to bring your eco village to life. Let’s build a better world together!
