More than 20 years of Brisbane residential home design

Tips and Advice

Looking back it’s hard to believe that I have been in a private Brisbane architecture practice for more than two decades. And whilst I have done some commercial work during that time I have predominantly specialised in residential architecture.

Of course being a local Brisbane architect for all of those years gives me an edge, a unique insight and familiarity with the Brisbane residential home design market that a lot of other architects simply don’t have.

All my experience means that I understand local conditions. I have an excellent knowledge of local materials and which work best in Brisbane’s sub-tropical climate as well as the local approach to building practices.

Creating residential home designs to suit the Brisbane market comes as second nature to me after all these years. I understand the climate and how to make it work for my clients. Capturing the cooling summer breezes whilst keeping homes warm in the winter is a speciality of mine. You could say that I have an excellent understanding of the lay of the land.

All of those things give my clients an advantage when I design their homes, but my 20+ years of experience also offers another welcome advantage that few other Brisbane architects can offer.

We understand what things cost.

Our clients tell us time and time again that our ability to give them an accurate idea of likely costs is a huge advantage to them in their planning.

Most of our clients have high hopes for what they can achieve for their budgets but occasionally their understanding of costs is not entirely accurate. For most people, this would mean revisiting their list of inclusions and working out what they can do without, however at dion seminara architecture, we view this as an opportunity.

You see, after working in the Brisbane residential home design market for so many years we can pretty much immediately tell you if your goals are attainable with the budget that you have allocated. But more importantly, our skill and local knowledge allows us to offer you creative ways to achieve your goals for less in those situations where your budget can stretch no further, thus limiting the number of inclusions that you need to go without.

So when it comes to Brisbane residential home design experience really does count and with more than 20 years experience in designing homes in South East Queensland, you’re well covered with dion seminara architecture.
