Designing and building your new home, extension or your long-anticipated renovation can be intimidating. The importance and scale of the project itself, paired with dealing with designers, draftspeople, architects, council approval and engineers, can be exhausting. But it doesn’t have to be.
We’ve been doing this (designing Brisbane building projects) for more than twenty years and it’s literally what we choose to do nearly every day of the week. We love building design, we love the process, and we’re so thrilled to take you through every step of your design project to the construction stage with ease, experience and infectious enthusiasm. And, we’re quite good at it too…
Per our namesake, this is what we’re absolutely all about – where we shine. Our vast team of highly experienced building designers work together, using their individual expertise, to address your brief and provide your project’s initial look. We proudly involve every member of our team, as your project is yours for you and your family to live in. We don’t have a ‘signature style’; rather, the result is a custom and creative concept design that completely delights, gets you energised and yet relieved that you’ve been really listened to and that you can see your dreams coming to form.
Our construction plans or “working drawings” as they’re sometimes called are incredibly detailed and accurate. They aid in and are a prerequisite for the Building Approval process, and Brisbane builders frequently comment on the precision and comprehensiveness of our dimensions and elevations. Put simply; we are known by industry for our uncompromising detail, thus ensuring your builder has all the information they need to move swiftly.
Obtaining Building Approval – which is done via a private certifier – can be a potentially challenging process with significant back and forth with the required external consultants. In acknowledgement of this, our coordination service sees us work closely with our highly experienced suite of external consultants, make any necessary changes, answer questions, and be involved in the decision making, for a coordination service fee.
To be awarded Building Approval, external consultation, scheduling (and their resulting documentation) is typical with the following professionals;
Unless you have significant experience in dealing with the above professionals or in obtaining Building Approvals (or have a close family member who does), our coordination service fee will save you significant time and money in obtaining your Building Approval.
If you do choose to manage this yourself, costs for our time in engaging with these professionals will apply. Please note we happily and helpfully share our recommended external consultants’ details with you if you opt to handle the coordination process yourself. After all – we’re all about getting you building!
Seeing how your project will sit and appear on your parcel of land and relative to your neighbours, is essential in the decision-making process and for your subsequent sign-off. Our team of talented building designers and draftspeople will make your brief come to life, showcasing spaces, shadows, gradients and liveability. Because life isn’t 2D!
As one of the very few building and interior design studios within Brisbane to offer this additional service, the resulting client takeup has made us question how we ever designed without it! Don your VR goggles and see how your project will appear in real life – this means interior colours, the kitchen, the bathroom, bedrooms, ceilings, flooring, lighting selections, and all. Our unique technology lets you experience your home, exactly as how it will appear. Definitively mind-blowing, and will ensure that every design decision you make is the right one.
A more impressive transformation you’ll not find, our design featuring light-grabbing voids, the chicest interior and editorial-worthy spaces, drops jaws. Especially given the Brisbane Character Zone restrictions we designed within.

Before you begin construction on your home, there are a few things to
consider. First – be realistic re: your ‘move in date’. Order materials early in the process to allow for delivery times. This will allow you to properly enjoy the building and interior design, selections and build process, without worrying about leases ending, timing of booked overseas trips, etc

The stages of the building design process typically include the following steps:
Every home/project is different. To provide you with an accurate quote we’d need to arrange a consultation (this is free). We’d then need to hear more about your Building Design / Interior Design requirements, plans, location, and block. Our fee proposals are itemised by the services we offer, and our clients choose the services they would like us to fulfill. Every project is completely unique; therefore, overall project costs vary.

We offer a Coordination Service to help make your journey as hassle-free as possible.
A Concept Design is the master plan and is often the step that takes the longest to complete. All options are considered to ensure the house has everything you want and is designed to work the way you need it to. A Concept Design is used to generate ideas and visualize what the final product will look like. A Working Drawing is a more detailed, accurate drawing that includes all of the measurements and specifications needed to construct the building. We also offer a 3D virtual walk through of your future home, where changes can be made on the spot.
