Building Design and Drafting in Melbourne

Dwelling Are An Innovative Drafting Team, Passionate About Helping Your Ideas Come To Life

Dwelling On Design believe in design creativity, although keeping in mind construction principles, regulations and building materials as an essential part of the design process.

Being in the home and commercial building design and documentation industry for over 23 years, involvement includes many local residential projects, designing and documenting multi-dwelling estates throughout Melbourne, managing design and development services, supervising on-site construction, estimating, several interstate residential developments and international involvement with some commercial projects.

Dwelling On Design can advise on design constraints, council requirements, town planning guidelines, building regulations and what will be suitable for your site before proceeding with an application. We can handle your application on your behalf through the relevant council, and liaise with town planners, surveyors, engineers and other consultants as required. We can organise all permits required to assist with gaining permission to build your new dream. We can ensure prompt building permits through the use of our private building surveyor, draftsman and engineers.

Regardless of the scale of the project, we always provide prompt, courteous service and ensure that you are kept informed throughout the design and documentation process.


I have found Jon and his team at Dwelling on Design to be smart with their designs, professional with their service and reliable with their time lines for completing a project, but most importantly personable helpful and easy to deal with. Over the years I have used the services of several building design firms and drafting service companies, and I feel that Dwelling on Design offer a better all around package.I am happy to recommend their company and services.
