About Us design-estate connects you to smart, sustainable, custom and affordable homes for Australian's.

design-estate is a passionate advocator of smart design and sustainable buys or builds.

Our aim: to contribute to a greener, greater and more transparent future housing environment within Australia.

Design is in our DNA. With this mantra in mind, we highlight ways to make your home work harder for you rather than you working harder to pay for it! By introducing free passive design principles based on where you live in Australia you can produce comfort, performance and overall inject a greater value. We also encourage a less-is-more approach when building. By adopting a dual-purpose space or room approach you can still enjoy flexible and functional spaces that toile together and evolve alongside your families expectations.

Although only a small operation through our research we aim to highlight other resources and sites. Here you can discover important new references designed to inform, offer inspiration and ideas.

Connect and create a greener, better-built home to make lasting memories within.

Claire| Architect
“It’s not often you see good architecture from Perth being promoted to the general public. Usually it’s kept for architectural magazines.  Responding to and encouraging strong architecture is necessary for Perth to develop into a greater city. Thank you design-estate for connecting people with design”.

Sophia | Interior Designer
“I love design-estate! I’m not always able to get in-store and found several incredibly beautiful pieces from local retailers which I thought I’d have to source over east that is now being carried via design news from Minotti to Fritz Hansen. This is excellent news for my client and me”!

I was inspired by the @kvadrat clouds you featured in Design News. I ended up sourcing the product and installed it in a recent client home with an overwhelming response. Thank you for seeking out these little treasures”.
