Making Space

A space for making

A space that encourages craftmanship and the love of making with your hands, and more importantly, finding inner space within oneself for creativity and joy.

Featuring Touchwood and our office containers, this is a place that aspires to incubate innovative social enterprises with the GUI ecosystem.



A Net-Zero Energy Building - Our Kampung's Pride!

GUI’s very first building – where you can find the boardroom, administrative areas and working space for GUI’s social enterprises.

The HeartQuarters (HQ) rises from the footprint of the previous building, features simple geometry, and works with the elements. Designed as a net-zero energy building with a low carbon footprint, the HQ maximises natural lighting and ventilation while its generous height lets heat and humidity escape.

Check out the opening of the HeartQuarters in 2017!

Kampung Backyard

Nature's kitchen - with a million-dollar view

“Makan is our most intimate connection with the Earth.”

Our communal kitchen area where we cook together, eat together and clean up together.



Farm our land, farm our hearts

One of our farming areas uniquely designed like a maze. We are practise non-chemical; natural farming methods and are happy to share that we are certified organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA)!

Waiting for the soil to return to its organic state takes lots of effort and time and it requires lots of dedication and conviction to believe in nurturing good soil through sustainable daily practices.
