I absolutely love the challenge of working with existing structures, transforming them into great spaces to suit modern lifestyles.

There are so many reasons why you might want to renovate or build your dream home.

  • Do you need more space for growing children?
  • Do you want to add a top floor to your single storey home?
  • Do you want to turn your old fibro into the beach cottage of your dreams?
  • Do you want to prepare for retirement and make your home more accessible?
  • Do you want to support ageing relatives with a granny flat in the garden?
  • Do you want to build from scratch with the support of local knowledge from an expert?



If you are planning a large extension, 1st-floor addition or new-build, or you would like help with understanding what can be achieved, applicable building regulation and available approval avenues, a Needs & Options Review is required.



We are here to help. Please get in touch and ask us any kind of question with regards to your plans or project.


You just need a quick set of drawings done for Council and you know already exactly what you are going to build?

You provide all information to us and explain to us the scheme you would like to see drawn up.  We provide a quick turnaround drafting service, providing all drawings as requested by you (your Council, your Certifier, your Builder).

4. DRAFTING & design

You know you would like more space or a different plan layout or a new home?

We listen carefully to your wishes and requirements. We can help with providing ideas and options for layouts, elevations and material choices or designing the whole home for you from scratch.

We work through your ideas until the perfect layout for your personal situation has been found and we make sure it all fits within the applicable local building regulations.

We are can provide detailed plans and interior elevation drawings for kitchens, bathrooms and laundries etc.


Ones you are happy with the designs from the previous step (see 3. Drafting or 4. Drafting & Design above) we draw up all architectural drawings as required for DA (Development Application) or CDC (Complying Development Certificate), including plans, elevations, sections, site plan, shadow diagrams, site analysis, landscape and FSR area calculations, 3D views, window schedules, neighbour notification drawings etc.

(Please also refer to Councils webpage for required documentation for your DA).
