About our Firm

We’re a small firm specialising in high-quality architecture. We’re not big on the fluffy architectural language over here, but if we were to describe our style, it would simply be, modern, sub-tropical design with a palette of timber and exposed masonry materials. Living in the region of some beautiful Queensland character homes, we love to draw on the inspiration of the traditional character but simultaneously like to distinguish between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’.

We’re very respectful to our clients in that we always remember that ‘our architectural project’ is and always will be your home/development. We consider the design process as a collaboration between the architect and owner; we bring the ideas and tailor the design to your wants, likes and needs.

We deliver exceptional designs in the residential, multi-residential and commercial sections. Contact Domek Architects today to bring your vision to life.


We are a ‘full services’ architectural firm, which includes architecture, interior design, and landscaping.

It takes a team of consultants beyond just the architect to deliver all the logistics of a project including town planners, various engineers, and certifiers. We coordinate this process for you right through to the builder selection and stay on for the construction process.

What our Clients Say

Jessica at Domek Architects went above and beyond our expectations. Jessica is professional, approachable and extremely knowledgeable. When our original ideas were not feasible, Jessica proposed a plan that was better suited to our family, budget and existing property. Jessica’s ideas and design will enable us to add to our property with minimal disruption, while taking advantage of energy efficiency and sunlight, best use of our land size and with the best outcome for our family’s needs.

Jessica was always accessible and took the time to answer our questions and explain the detailed process of extending and renovating according to Council requirements. Jessica coordinated quotes for other Consultants on our behalf, including Geo-tech and Soil Consultants, Certifiers, Engineers and Energy Assessment Consultants. Jessica’s ideas are innovative and fresh and her understanding of the Queensland Building Code and Council requirements was invaluable to our extension process.

Named after a traditional Polish jam doughnut, this little member of the team will bring a smile to your face with her energy and enthusiasm. Her role in the practice is to alert us of any courier and postal deliveries. She also reminds us to take a break from our computer screens every once in a while to throw her a ball. We’re not fussed if you can’t work out how to pronounce her name.
