dion seminara architecture

We’re All About Lifestyle

Named after its founder and principal architect, we at dion seminara architecture have put lifestyle first in every person and project for over 30 years.

What makes us unique and capable of putting your lifestyle needs first is that our group is made up of dedicated professionals who are specialist designers from landscape to interior design, and collaborators with the benefit of having licensed building contractors in-house. This means your needs will see practical advice and your outcome will be delivered without compromise.

We believe that the final outcome of unique design relies on sound theory, proven practical experience and immense design talent. This approach has allowed us to expand on the specialist capabilities we deliver to Brisbane families, homes, and commercial or public projects time and time again.

Our specialities

We Cover a Lot of Ground

Brisbane is fortunate to be home to so many different types of building structures and personal needs. It’s part of the reason why so many architects are attracted to the profession.

It’s not surprising to learn that some firms tend to specialise and focus on one area such as new homes, restorations, or industrial buildings.

As we’ve broadened our team and taken on a variety of building projects, we’ve continued to specialise in our set of capabilities to not just deliver, but also win awards in multiple disciplines.

If lifestyle and comfortable living are things you care about in your project, we will take care of your architectural needs in:

  • Residential
    • Home Renovations
    • Custom New Homes
    • Luxury Residences
    • Multi-Residential
    • Resort & Leisure Accommodations
  • Commercial Interior Fitouts
    • Commercial fitouts and office spaces
    • Place of Worship
    • Resorts and resort landscapes

We invite you to get inspired by the imagery and history of our work, and learn exactly why people like you approach us to deliver on these architectural specialties.

Location. Location. Location.

We love Brisbane

Travel around this magnificent country of ours, and you might notice that the architecture differs from one place to the next. Often this difference is subtle, with one region offering a slight change in architectural flavour to the next. But at other times the difference is quite noticeable. Brisbane is one prime example where the architecture stands out against other capital cities of Australia.

Brisbane’s unique location relevant to the equator creates a need to understand sub-tropical design in order to create buildings and gardens that suit local climatic conditions. Of course, it’s not just theory, practical experience and design talent are also vitally important to a design’s outcome. We’re proud to take in a variety of needs from lifestyle to environmental and still deliver a sound structure is amazing to look at and live in.

What makes us ‘boutique’?

‘Boutique’ is More Than Just a Word

There are plenty of architecture companies and design firms to choose from. Our point of difference is that we are an award-winning, highly regarded firm providing unique and innovative designs. But all that aside, when your Principal Architect is a licenced builder, our entire approach remains practical. We speak the same language as builders while remaining 100% independent of them so that your needs are covered at every possible step.

Our relationship with you is the key to project success, and we ensure consultation and input is gathered at each step. This way, we can safely translate your lifestyle needs and goals into designs without making any assumptions on your part.

Situated in Morningside, Brisbane, our boutique practice offers holistic design across buildings, interiors and landscapes.

We invite you to explore this website to learn about our process and how we deliver outstanding results. We invite you to read our testimonials written by our clients, and peruse some of the many architectural designs we have created from new homes to renovation designs and multi-residential projects.

Our goal is a simple one – to create the very best lifestyle designs for our clients. We are one of Brisbane’s leading boutique firms, generating stunning renovation designs for your existing space. If you are in the market for a truly unique, upmarket new home or ambitious commercial project, our designs stand the test of time.
