Our integrated approach

Building Architecture + Interior Design + Landscape Design

At dion seminara architecture, we provide an integrated approach with consideration of these three aspects to achieve the best result for your project. From building architectural design, and interior design to landscape, and external works design. Our designs look at the bigger picture, making sure each area complements each other.

Our specialty is creating stunning bespoke architecture that is tailored to suit your needs. We are multi-award winning architects who understand the importance of creating beautiful and functional spaces that are designed for those who occupy them. From a practical standpoint, things like orientation and spatial arrangements are particularly important to capture the best aspects and create a better flow.

Architecture is just part of the picture when it comes to designing your project. The interior design must complement and enhances the beauty of the structure. This is why we offer a market-leading interior design service as an additional service.

There are also many options for external works and landscaping, and the right choice will depend on what else is being done to your home. But the key here is to ensure that it blends with the rest of the home. It also needs to make the most of your block’s natural assets.

By taking this integrated approach our designs blend spaces together. We maintain a visual connection as well as an appropriate physical relationship.

What are your fees?

Architectural Service Fee Structure

dion seminara architecture offers a number of design fee options based on which of the stage 1 or stage 2 design packages you proceed with. Our fees are generally based on the size and complexity of the project. We begin our architectural process with a design consultation where we can scope out the architectural work needed and provide you with fixed rates for each design package option.

You can decide which design package you would like to proceed with for your project. You may want to engage us for a concept design that you can use to establish your ideas and an estimate of cost for your project. Or you may have some expertise in managing builders and the building process. So you would like a detailed architectural design and a set of approval documents suitable for preliminary pricing. Alternatively, you can engage us for the full design service. Thus ensuring you have a fully resolved design with no guesswork for the builder and no potential for shortcuts.

We will also provide you with hourly rates for our additional optional services including Interior Design, Landscape Design, and Contract Administration.

Please contact us if you’d like more information about our design packages, architectural process and fees.

Additional Sub-consultant Fees
In addition to our architectural service fees, our projects generally involve the services of a range of specialist consultants.  The client can be required to commission the input from a Surveyor, Town Planner, Engineers, an Estimator and a Certifier. We will organise quotes from each of these consultants for our clients as required for the successful completion of the project.
