StudioDB3 has been helping people design, build and renovate homes in Victoria for over 30 years. Designing your dream home can be both challenging and rewarding. We work with clients giving support for completion of their projects every step of the way.
Choosing a Site Finding the right piece of land to suit your design needs is important . Different parcels of land allow different types of uses and building sizes. Building a home according to what is currently permitted can makes projects simpler by not having to get planning approvals from the municipality. We can help you consider different scenarios to help with your decision.
Making the Site Work for You The perfect piece of land will sometimes not allow the perfect home. Municipalities have zoning bylaws that control the types of buildings permitted on each piece of land under their jurisdiction. As a landowner you can apply to a municipality to change what is permitted on your property. We work with clients to help them through this process. For more complex proposals, we work closely with professionals who have experience working with municipalities.
Coming up with the Concept Every project is unique. When developing a concept for a new home or renovation, we work with you to integrate the natural and man made features of the property and surrounding properties into the design. This creative phase of the project requires time with clients so that we can turn dreams into reality.
Drawings and Models Art is the best way to open a client’s eyes to the possibilities. Depending on the project, we often use renderings or massing models to help clients see what their new home will look like when completed.
Detailed Drawings Detailed drawings transform the client’s concepts into something that can be used to get a building permit, line up a contractor and give the builders instructions. We produce professional drawings accepted by all municipalities and used by all contractors and builders. It's "in the details" and we take great pride in getting those details right.
Choosing a Contractor Most contractors can build your home, but they are all different. Like every Chef will prepare a dish with their own flair, every contractor has their style of construction and approach to the project. We will help you to understand the differences and help you choose the right contractor for your project.
Supervising Construction With custom homes, many small decisions are made on the construction site. We are able to offer that service and take on a supervisory role to ensure decisions are made in the client’s best interest.
