The Design Centre, located up in the hinterland on the Sunshine Coast, provide building design and drafting service for the wider Queensland region

Australians live an enviable lifestyle in terms of their relationship with the outdoor environment and use of external spaces. This is no more apparent than in Queensland where climate dictates much of the way in which we live our lives. At Design Centre (NQ) our goal is to create striking individual designs that respond to their site and facilitate the occupants desired lifestyle.


Queenslanders have an enviable climate, allowing people to spend much of their time outdoors.  At Design Centre (NQ) we focus on building a better lifestyle by designing homes that suit our tropical climate. We put a larger emphasis on energy efficient indoor/outdoor living areas and connecting them to the landscape and pools with shaded verandahs. Encouraging the prevailing breezes to flow throughout the house with well positioned windows and doors also brings the outside in, or as we like to put it, bring the inside out!


There are a number of key focal points the team at Design Centre nq pay particular attention to when designing a new home or extending an existing. Our clients brief along with the specific site features, local climate issues, impacting energy efficiency and environmental performance, budget requirements, and building style are all given equal weighting to create something unique and special on every occasion.
