About our Firm

Domek Architects is an exciting and fresh design firm with a passion for Brisbane residential architecture. This includes small micro-living projects such as granny flats, renovations, new custom luxury homes and multi-residential developments. We believe in a holistic architectural approach that combines architecture seamlessly with both the interior design and landscape design.

We are also conscious of the issues we face today of sustainability and housing affordability, and believe that modern architecture has a role to play in providing positive design solutions.

Residential projects are a once in a lifetime opportunity for most of our clients. Therefore, we’re not going to fast-track you through our system, but rather we’re here to make sure you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

Our goal with each and every project is to ensure that our clients receive a design which enriches their lifestyle. It’s not about the architect’s ego, but rather about listening to the client’s individual needs, budget and dreams.

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.
