We have over 50 inspiring new home designs, serving Australia wide since 1981.
Clients can modify one of our home designs or we can work from your house plans or sketch design.
The Desu Difference
Our mission is to make it easy for you to get exactly what you want.
It has taken us 34 years to perfect how we do that. There are three aspects that come together to make our client’s experience an absolute pleasure.
Secondly, we have an awesome design briefing and preliminary design process, and it is only $500 to get started. From our first phone call with the client to commencing the build, we have streamlined the design, approvals and contracts process into eight deliverables. Making sure nothing gets missed and the process from start to finish is smooth and transparent for our client.
We also offer our clients the freedom to buy their own finishing items. Yes, our clients can go out and buy their own kitchen, favourite lights and stunning bath tub, and we just work that into the line items, with no mark-up or administrative charges. We take the view that there is no better way for our clients to personalise their new home than to have the freedom to go out and buy whatever aspects they want to themselves.
Thirdly, is culture. We have a highly motivated and talented team. We are passionate about new home designs and building, making it easy for each client to achieve what they want. We don’t impose our views, we embrace our client’s vision and focus on the best ways to deliver it.
We want every client to love their experience with desu Designer Homes.
Urban, Country And Beach Home Designs
Our designs cater for urban, country and beach style homes.
Our most popular urban home designs is the Olot.
On country home designs we have the Montseny.
For beach home designs the St Gervasi.
Open Plan Home Designs
Open plan designs date back to the 1920s inspiration of Mies Van Der Rohe, the famous Dutch architect who combined open plan spaces with pavilion style design. This inspiring architect was renowned for The Barcelona Pavilion, designed for the 1929 International Exposition:
Most of our home designs embrace open plan living, creating free flowing spaces from kitchen to dining and living areas. Whilst historically the emphasis on outdoor living areas has mainly been in Queensland, we are now seeing that trend in house plans from our clients Australia wide.
Pole Home Designs
We embrace the challenge of sloping blocks and sites. We do all types of homes, including split level house plans and elevated floors. We specialize in cyclone rated zones and difficult build sites.
Here is a pole home of ours on the side of a cliff in Wamuran.
Of our pole home designs, the Madrazo is our most popular.
Off The Plan Home Designs
Each of our home designs can be built as off the plan homes. This will usually save our client 4-6% on the overall build costs.
That said, our clients are folks planning to live in the new home for at least three years, in some cases forever. Being able to personalise the design is extremely important. Therefore 70% of our clients prefer custom home designs. The other 30% come to us with a plan they have created together with architects or building designers.
Custom Home Designs
We offer custom home designs for every client.
We have a brilliant custom home designs briefing process; the “Design Brief”. Once we complete the Design Brief we then start on the Preliminary Design, including computer 3D images of the new home, and detailed inclusions documents.
On custom design, we make it easy for our clients to get exactly what they want as they balance budget, design and finishing options.
We also provide the freedom for our clients to buy their own finishing items. For example, the freedom to use their favourite kitchen company. We manage those client choices without any hidden costs or admin charges.
