Our philosophy is simple: We listen to your needs and work with you to create your home. This is your project and we are here to meet your needs.

We encourage open communication & collaboration with all our clients, and vale everyone’s individuality. With over 26 years’ experience we understand that no two projects are ever the same.

Troy Dawes, the director of Dawes Design, is a Registered Building Practitioner & has provided high quality building design and drafting to Victoria since 1996. Dawes Design was established in 2007, a re-branding from Troy’s original company, Troy Dawes design, established in 1997. Dawes Design & Drafting Group is recognised for its passionate, dedicated and creative design solutions. We continue to expand our diverse body of work, encapsulating all disciplines of residential design. No project is too big or too small at Dawes Design.

We pride ourselves in working in any style of building design, and we look forward to understanding the unique requirements of each project, with our client’s needs, desires, style and budget always at the forefront. This is combined with a detailed consideration for the site’s context, its constraints and limitations, and a focus on the opportunities available.

As a specialised residential design company, we endeavour take the stress out of the design process by providing accurate & detailed plans that make the town planning & building permit process simpler. You can rest assured that your project will be handled by an experienced team who are committed to making your journey as stress-free as possible. We provide a personalised service, and we pride ourselves on honesty, transparency & first-rate communication. We encourage open dialogue when addressing any queries or questions relating to the design process and all other services we offer.

Dawes Design operates in conjunction with a network of professional and experienced consultants including Town-planning consultants, Interior designers, Civil engineers, Structural engineers, Geotechnical engineers, Thermal assessors, Land surveyors and Building Surveyors.

As a registered member with the VBA (Victorian Building Authority) since 1997, Dawes Design brings a wide range of knowledge, skills and services required to complete all residential design projects.


What we do?

Deliver solutions and create the space you need.

Designing a boutique home allows you to create personalised functionality to suit your lifestyle. When designing your own home you are able to make full use of the site and its contours to create a unique space that complements your way of living, and the surrounding landscape.  It also allows you to select trades people of your choice and to select materials and products that suit your style and budget.

Renovating your home can change your lifestyle without the costly expense of moving to a new house.  It can also help to restore and preserve the existing heritage or style of the home you own. Extending or renovating can allow you to create new space, light and functionality, to add simplicity and leisure, or tap into existing panoramic views.

A multi residential development refers to any project where there is more than one dwelling allocated to an allotment. A dual occupancy development involves the planning and designing of a second dwelling, usually to the side or rear of a property.

Starting a new business or, moving to a new location, may require a change of use within the premises. Light Commercial development includes the design and fit-out of shops, cafes and office spaces. It may also include additions to existing business locations.
