We are a team of down-to-earth, highly motivated designers, whose passion lies in the satisfaction of seeing our clients’ architectural dreams and visions become reality.
No two projects are the same, nor any two clients; at DK Architecture, we tailor our design process to the unique challenges of each project, working hand-in-hand with each of our clients throughout the entire process.
As designers, we are the first cog in the very important process and a good designer is key to any successful building project. We take pride in this role and aim to maximise our briefs and always exceed expectations. We work with the client’s wish list, budget and timeframe, and translates them; transforming their dreams to reality. The more thought invested in the planning phase the smoother any project will run. Professional advice from the right designer will make for ‘smooth sailing’ and elevate the design from good to great.
We believe communication is key and with a collaborative approach, we work hard to create an enjoyable experience from the initial concept stage right through to project completion. We spend the required time to investigate all possibilities, considering the spaces internally, externally and as a whole, constantly pushing the boundaries, to create the best possible, functional and beautifully designed buildings.
