Design Services & Workshops

de.arch design services

We offer a range of architectural services from full design & documentation services to project feasibility...

The de.arch team are led by architects Peita and Jessica, who between them have designed and overseen the construction of over 250+ residential projects from tiny inner city apartments and terraces to houses set on acreage.

Our diverse commercial project experience ranges from custom office & workplace fitouts, retail showrooms, lobby & common area refurbishments, end of trip facilities and more!

We wish to impart our experience and knowledge so that you can make better design choices in your new residential or commercial project – because our lives are too valuable for poorly designed spaces and you deserve better! 

de.arch offer a range of services for those who wish to enlist the expertise and guidance of an architect for a large or small part of your building project journey.

Whether it be pre-purchase or pre-planning advice and feasibility, partial design services or full end to end design services, we tailor our services to suit you.

See below for more information…

1. Full Design Services


– Have a block of land or house and you want to build a new home or renovate & extend.

– Would like a tailored design solution that really considers the people who will live here now and 10, 20+ years from now.

– Want a home that is energy efficient, sustainable and low maintenance.

– Think this may be your long term home or ‘forever home’.

– Have a complex site, whether that be sloping, small, heritage overlay or perhaps all three!

2. Partial Design Services


– Would like your project to benefit from the expertise and value an architect can bring but would like our services to end with the developed design package (incl. floor plans, 3d exterior design & renders).

– Are looking for a more cost effective option in which your customised design can be handed over to a builder or other design practitioner to complete the construction documentation package.

Note: As town planning approval is not required for all properties / sites, this scope is costed separately.

$25,000 + GST


3. Floor Plan Design Review


– Already have had floor plans drawn up but aren’t completely happy with them and would like a professional opinion and suggestions on how it can be optimised / improved.

$2,000 + GST (max. 2 storeys)

4. Design & Development Feasibility


– Own a block of land and would like to develop into two or more dwellings but not sure what is possible in terms of town planning, how to optimise the site and building footprint and approx. cost.

– Have a block with one home but would like to investigate building another home on the same lot.

– Have a challenging site / context and would like a more in depth look at what is possible before committing to an architect.

Interiors Package


– Have a construction drawing package already drawn up but it does not include an interiors package. Now it’s over to you to make these decisions & probably in a very short timeframe!

– You have an interiors package but don’t 100% love what has been proposed. Don’t settle for mediocre, your interior spaces should be designed for your needs and tastes.  

– You want to update the interior of your home without it being a full blown renovation. 

We see this often! Without proper consideration, this can result in an inconsistent interior style and may de-value your home. Many home owners rely on their builders to help steer them with their interior selections, however this is not a builders role – nor is this their skillset.
