We work collaboratively with our clients to provide them with optimal solutions to architectural design and construction challenges.

Your Questions Answered

The architecture design fee will depend on the overall construction fee that the builder will charge. We charge between 9 to 15 % of overall construction fee. The construction fee depends on whether you are looking for a low-end or high-end architecture design for your property.

We will design with the budget in mind. Once the custom design is finished, we will then engage with the builder company. Should the construction fee turn out to be higher than your budget,  we will work with the builder to determine possible amendments without compromising the overall design.

The architecture design process usually takes between 3 to 6 months.

Once the design has been confirmed, the application process will start. Your project will either need to go through DA or CDC. We will help you decide which application to go with. We will base our recommendation on the site analysis and review of local code. Our recommendation will always be the one that maximises the value of your space and usage of land available. Depending on which one you then decide to go with, will decide how long the approval process takes. Generally speaking, application and approval process can take 6 months to 1 year.

Construction takes around 8 to 18 months depending on how complex the design is.

You can amend your design 3 times during concept and development stage. Unfortunately, the design cannot be alternated after the client has approved it. Should a design change be requested, a variation will need to be charged.

The build process starts with the design stage, followed by application and approval stage, followed by onsite construction work by the builder. We will guide you through the entire process and confirm every step with you. We will go onsite and check the progress of the construction to ensure that the construction team builds the property according to our design specifications. However, any additional onsite coordination requested by the client will invoke an hourly charge. Rest assured – we will be your trusted advisors on your journey towards your dream home.

We do architecture design for the following building types:

  • Duplex
  • Granny Flat
  • House Extension
  • House Knockdown Rebuild
  • Town Houses
  • Low-rise Buildings lower than three levels

We use advanced tools for facade design to give houses a modern exterior. This is a great option for clients who already own a house, but want to spicy up its exterior to give it a modern look.

Analyse and Listen

We start each project by visiting your property to make an analysis and check against regulations like SEPP, LEP  and DCP. We listen to you to out find out what your needs and desires are and get an understanding of what is meaningful to you. We set the foundation for a residential space that speaks your language.

Dream and Think

We prepare your preliminary schematic designs. Floor plans and 3D Renderings will help you visualise your property what it will look like when it is done.
