Residential Building Design

Residential Building Design for your new home is our specialty. No need to settle for a standard plan and façade from a project home builder when we can design your new home from scratch specifically tailored to suit your needs. You can have a new modern individual façade that is exclusive to you. Custom designing your new home doesn’t mean it will more expensive than going the project builder route. We have many top quality custom builders we can suit you with and have your custom design expertly costed once created to ensure it fits within your budget before we lodge for planning consent.


There is a common misconception that architects are somewhat more knowledgeable or experienced than home building designers.

However, this is not always the case.

Most home building designers have spent years working practically as builders and know the ins and outs of the industry.

They have the best contacts and have hands on experience so are able to provide realistic advice and will charge half the price an architect would.

Taking care of all aspects of design, allow our building designers to create custom design layouts and facades unique to you.
