As an architect, Damien Murtagh understood the value of a physical model to explore ideas and present designs to clients. However, traditional ‘cut and glue’ models are time consuming, impractical and expensive. The moment of insight came while he was developing a real modular building concept. He needed a modern system that was fast, reusable and cost-effective. To his amazement, nothing like this existed – so he decided to invent one from scratch! Designed and manufactured in Ireland, ARCKIT is a bright team of architects, toy specialists, designers, model enthusiasts and all-round creative people where they work tirelessly to share their enthusiasm and ideas. Their mission is to open the world of architecture to everyone and help children develop fundamental design skills and experience the feeling of spontaneous creativity through hands-on model building.
Arckit is a freeform architectural modelling system that allows you to physically explore designs and bring your ideas to life with speed and precision. Based on modern building techniques and a 1.2m/4ft grid to scale, the ‘click and connect’ modular components make it possible to create a vast range of structures that can be quickly assembled, endlessly modified and finished to perfection. Everything you need to design and build your own impressive model structures up to 90 sq.m (960 sq.ft) to scale, including adhesive sheets to add realistic building finishes. There are no set instructions – just follow your imagination!
