Clever design adds value
What does the Secret Design Studio do?
We are a design-focused building consultancy. We are passionate about quality residential design. We collect 20th Century chairs. We champion mid century modern architecture with an irregular blog. We can consult, design, assess, advise and even negotiate with third parties on your behalf. We are happy to work with your ideas and concepts, or your builders plans, or even your architect’s plans, and we are very good at doing our own designs.
Secret Design Studio is here to help
get the balance right.
We have years of design experience, and have worked for some of the biggest builders in Australia. The services offered are far more extensive than that offered by an architectural practice, and much more engaged with the building process.
We have had years of experience preparing town planning applications, and working alongside some of the best town planners in Melbourne, although we are not town planners.
We are not a construction business, although we have had years of experience employed by builders, engaged by builders and building ourselves.
Mid-Century Modern Architecture
While we are experienced enough to work with any 20th century building, our passion is for Mid-Century Modern houses - the "retro" homes of the 1950's through to the 1970's. From designing a sympathetic renovation, addition or extension, to designing a new home in a mid-century modern style, Secret Design Studio can help.
"Thanks to the Secret Design Studio.For two years we’ve been going round in circles trying to design a Mid Century Modern style house on a steep block of land with lots of restrictions. Although we loved our original design we had many concerns; getting the styling right was proving difficult, there was too much dead space and quotes were coming in way too high.Then we found Alistair from Secret Design Studio. After only one meeting we had a new floor plan that really worked for us. Best of all Alistair was able to reduce the size of our house without compromising on space and potentially has helped us save lots of $$."
