Grand Mansion and Estate Design

Grand Mansion and Estate Design

Renovations, Tips and Advice, New Homes

Perhaps you have a sprawling estate that needs renovation, or you’re wanting to build a grand mansion from scratch. Either way you’ve come to the right place.

Only a handful of architects have experience in designing properties of this kind.

There are many pitfalls that need to be avoided. Properties of this kind can often lack connection, not only from the interior to the outdoor spaces of the home, but also internally, inhibiting the functionality and liveability of the space.

The best designs are luxurious without trying too hard. It goes without saying that it needs to be a bespoke design. You won’t find an ‘off the plan’ design for these types of properties. Aesthetics and functionality come together in every aspect of the property. The plan should maximise the surrounding views whilst taking full advantage of the local climatic conditions.

The design of your property will require meticulous planning to ensure that it functions in a way that suits your lifestyle. There should be no wasted space. Every detail should have been careful thought out.

The architecture needs to blend seamlessly with the interior design. The internal spaces create a flowing connection with the landscaped surrounds. Everything working as one.

To create such a design, we first need to obtain an intimate knowledge of your lifestyle. From there we consider the required inclusions. We then offer advice, presenting ideas that you’ve never considered.

So, if you’re looking at a project of this nature, you owe it to yourself to come and talk to a firm that has experience in this field. Call in and see us at our stand at the Brisbane Home Show at the Convention Centre this weekend and we can get the ball rolling. We have some amazing show specials on offer, so there’s never been a better time to get expert design advice.
