Combining Beauty And Function

The core to the ability of dion seminara architecture to interpret visions, and turn them into home designs, is our understanding that every single person we speak to is unique. Your needs, wants, and desires are not identical to everyone else’s – if everyone was the same we would live in a much more boring world!

With these differences in mind, our architects take the time to understand you, and learn everything about you we possibly can. We try to get the best possible understanding of your lifestyle, your likes, your dislikes, what things that are important to you now, and the things that will be important to you in the future!

Holistic Design Approach

The Brief :
Understanding Your Needs and Wants

When it comes to custom home designs – the absolute best designs are born from a collaborative approach. After all – we may have the architecture skills to bring your dream home to life, but we don’t (yet) have the understanding of your lifestyle that is needed to make design alterations, and suggestions, to make your home exceed any outcomes you thought were possible!

For us to get to know you on the level needed to make design suggestions that will enhance your life, it’s extremely important that we gain an intimate understanding of the way you live your life, the things you love, what frustrates you, and many more factors!

Whether your dream lifestyle consists of relaxation and Sunday brunches in bed, or your idea of fun is entertaining the whole neighbourhood, different lifestyles have different requirements. There isn’t just 1 correct way to enjoy life – so the question is how do YOU want to live your life, and what can we do to help?

It’s only after we understand these factors behind what it is that makes you tick as a person, that we can get started on a design whilst being 100% sure that our architects will have the knowledge to not just put their personal ideas on paper – but rather interpret, improve, and expand on your very own dream home vision.

Do I Need Extra Services?

Of course none of the extra services we offer at dion seminara architecture are mandatory, however depending on the project scope you may find them highly beneficial.

Please note that although this page will cover the extra services we are frequently asked for, this is not an exhaustive list of services we can provide.

If you have a need for a service which is not on this list, feel free to call us and one of our team members will be more than happy to guide you in the right direction.

Sustainable Environmental Design

In recent years, many people have started to care about sustainable design due to its positive effects on the environment, as well as the financial savings that come with lowered use of resources such as water and electricity.

At dion seminara architecture, we have been interested in sustainable design for over 3 decades, and have a wealth of experience creating homes that are great for the environment – without sacrificing any comfort.

Sustainable design is at the heart of all our projects. We pride ourselves on our low consumption home designs, our award-winning energy efficiency projects, and most importantly – our ability to achieve all this WITHOUT sacrificing comfort.

Walk-Throughs, Virtual Reality, 3D Rendering

We understand that not everybody works in the fields of architecture or construction – to the vast majority of the population, floorplans are just lines on a page! A crucial part of a project’s success is being able to accurately convey what the final product will look like to clients before it’s too late to fix any unnoticed issues.

Using a range of technologies including 3D renders and virtual-reality walkthroughs, dion seminara architecture makes it a priority to ensure you know EXACTLY what your property will look like – before a tradesman ever steps foot on your property.

Don’t leave the outcome of your home design to chance!

Interior Design

One of the only things better than a beautiful architectural plan, is a beautiful completed house. Of course, well thought out architecture plays a big part in this; but other services, such as interior design, play a part!

Our interior design service ensures that everything from colour schemes, to fixtures, to finishes, to fittings – as all thoughtfully planned by an interior designer with the goal of enhancing your home’s beauty.

Plant Selection

Just like architectural design, plant selection for your new home ALSO needs to consider both aesthetics and function during design.

Factors such as levels of sunlight in an area, whether you’re indoor or outdoor, desired level of maintenance, and many more factors will all greatly impact which plants will work for your home. This service gives you professional input during the decision making process, and gives you the reassurance that you have the right plants for the area!

Lighting Design

The ambience of your home is both important to your mental health, and a direct influencer of your comfort levels. Although often overlooked, one of the biggest impacts on home ambience is thoughtfully planned lighting!

Whether you want your home to feel relaxing, motivating, or familiar – our lighting design service gives you the opportunity to get our expert’s help in achieving your desired feel.

Contact dion seminara architecture today to learn more about our Lighting Design service!

Landscape Design

The philosophy of dion seminara architecture is to create integrated designs that consider home design holistically.

One area of design we use to achieve this goal is landscape design!

If you have a beautiful home – why would you leave your landscaping to chance? An architect designed home can be enhanced by professional input on landscaping, and that is what this service exists to do.

Home Automation

It wasn’t that long ago that computers took up a whole room, and were well and truly financially out of reach for individual consumers. Now – you can find infinitely more advanced computers for bargain prices, and small enough to fit in your backpack.

The point I’m making is that technology is advancing RAPIDLY – making many aspects of our lives easier and more convenient. One area that is seeing a rapid growth is home automation and smart home technology.

Although these areas can be confusing, dion seminara architecture can help you navigate the complexities of home automation. We can also design your system in a way that allows it to be upgraded as technology advances!

Indoor-Outdoor Design

One of the biggest advantages of our subtropical climate is the ability to embrace an outdoor lifestyle that would simply not be possible in many other climates. Considering we have so much sunshine – why not utilise it?

One of the best ways to utilise our comfortable climate is by creating indoor-outdoor living areas – homes that allow you to choose between isolating spaces or creating a seamless connection.

By taking advantage of this design style, you could benefit from increased natural lighting, cool breezes, fresh air circulation throughout your home, and increased physical and mental health! Contact dion seminara architecture today to find out more.

Where do we service?

We are recognised as one of the leading residential architecture firms not just in Brisbane, but across Australia!

We have serviced clients in rural areas and interstate, as our belief is that architectural services shouldn’t be locality based – if you find the right architect, why settle for someone who’s closer but less ideal?

Wherever you are, dion seminara architecture is ready to bring your project to life!
