Our Principal Architect Dion has been an architect in Brisbane for over 30 years,
and is strongly focussed on a humanist approach to working with people that sets us apart from alternatives.
We will reinvent the way you feel in your space as our pre-design processes are designed to collect your unique design aspirations and needs.
By prioritising what activities are important to you, and how you plan to use your home both now and in the future,
we create room to room functionality and a dream home that will serve you for a lifetime.
Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate, vernacular character to contemporary housing types; our irregular shapes of land and topography of our sites, pose unique design challenges. As a specialist home design architect, climate responsive design producing naturally comfortable living environments that also produce functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces, is our paramount and most important objective.
As we are often also your interior designers and landscape designers, we work hard to ensure there is inside and outside flow between spaces;
interesting views and vistas from within, to and from the outside.
We have an extensive knowledge base of both interior and exterior materials for best contextual feel
and long lasting outcomes, depending upon your budget constraints.

"We had long wanted to upgrade the outdoor areas but the sloping terrain presented a number of challenges. The services provided by Dion Seminara and his team were comprehensive helping to steer us through concept design to tendering, procurement and construction management. Without this support, we would have been exposed to significant risks and doubtless additional costs. We are very happy with the finished product which has significantly enhanced our living space delivering a finished product that was far beyond what we had anticipated."
"Dion’s advice, input and experience was invaluable. Prior to our meeting, Dion spent time on the phone with me and a we completed a questionnaire so he could thoroughly understand our needs both now and into the future. Dion then spent 2 hours with us at the property. He provided great advice about the options and possibilities with the house, taking into consideration the block and aspect, our lifestyle and budget. I also called Dion a couple of times after our meeting, and he was again generous with practical, detailed info and suggestions. I’d be happy to engage Dion again. It was time and money very well spent."
"We engaged Dion Seminara Architecture to help find a more aesthetically pleasing solution to using a baby gate to fence off an area for our dogs. His design solution was nothing short of brilliant – both in form and function. We are astounded at the way that Dion managed to effectively understand our brief, understand our passion for interior design, gauge our style and uncompromising standards and immediately provide options that were on-point. We have an immense amount of respect for his talent, and that of his team. He is professional, punctual and accommodating."
