Feasibility & Design:

Our primary goal is to unearth your desires but with a strong emphasis on feasibility and cost analysis. We pay meticulous attention as you reveal the intricacies, including practical considerations like where the kids will store their school bags or the strategic location of the drying room. This thorough process lays the foundation for constructing a home that aligns with your unique lifestyle while remaining budget-conscious.

We navigate the complexities of your land and council regulations, assessing relevant zoning requirements, heritage or bushfire stipulations and identifying and addressing any potential challenges associated with your design vision.

If needed, we engage with the council for a pre-DA discussion to ensure compliance and streamline the process.

Recognising the importance of budgets, we undertake a rigorous cost analysis that reinforces the feasibility of your dream home within your financial framework.  We bolster this with a market analysis that safeguards the future saleability of your home, ensuring the protection of your investment.

We present you with pencil sketch concepts that combine your vision with a cost-conscious approach. These sketches empower you to engage with various elements, ensuring your dream home is not only a vision but a feasible and budget-friendly reality throughout the entire process.

Schematic 4D modelling:

This phase comes alive through our exceptional 4D computer modelling. It provides the unique opportunity to virtually traverse your envisioned home right from the moment you open the front door.

Our mastery in 4D modelling empowers us to iteratively refine the designs and amplify your vision that will enhance your daily life. We delve into the minutiae, including the choice of materials, from kitchen benchtops to interior panelling, determining the dimensions of your wardrobes, and meticulously selecting the fixtures and fittings that will grace your living spaces. You will understand how the natural light will paint your home and how each area interacts within the dwelling and connects the inhabitants to the house.

Council compliance:

This process phase can often be quite cumbersome. Over decades of designing on Sydney’s North Shore, we’ve fostered strong relationships within the council and possess an intimate understanding of the process.

We expertly manage a proficient consultant team encompassing landscape architects, stormwater engineers, arborists, bushfire consultants, heritage consultants and planners.

We actively participate in council meetings to address any concerns or misconceptions and respond to any inquiries or issues raised by your neighbours about your home and construction project.

Our attention to detail and established rapport with the council ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience, allowing you to focus on your dream home while we care for the rest.

Interior architecture:

Breathing life into the concept, we embark on the comprehensive interior architecture phase. We delve into the intricate details that make a dwelling truly exceptional. Our expertise extends to designing the heart of the home, including the kitchen and bathrooms, meticulously crafting stairs, optimising lighting solutions, and selecting tiles that blend aesthetics with functionality, all while ensuring strict adherence to regulatory and budgetary considerations.

Our interior architecture expertise blends form and function to craft aesthetically pleasing and practical spaces.

Contract tender:

We present an exhaustive set of construction drawings to prepare for entering into a fixed-price building contract. These comprehensive documents serve as the blueprint for the forthcoming construction phase.

Our collaboration begins with you as we assist in selecting a builder whose expertise aligns with your project’s specific requirements. Subsequently, we furnish the preferred builder with the required documentation.

Our active involvement remains throughout the construction phase. This hands-on approach guarantees that we precisely execute every detail, facilitating a seamless process. We remain readily available to address inquiries or concerns, fostering a collaborative working relationship between all stakeholders.

Design management:

This concluding phase ensures that the house you are constructing aligns perfectly with your dream home vision.

We maintain a vigilant watch over every detail in collaboration with the builders, providing peace of mind that we perfectly execute every agreed-upon element, from tile placement to lighting.

Our regular on-site presence with the builders ensures you receive timely progress updates. By taking on this hands-on role, we safeguard your interests throughout the contract administration process, a practice called “design management.”

To you, it translates into a seamless, hassle-free experience both in the short and long term.

Our dedication doesn’t waver – even after you’ve unlocked the door to your new home.
