Welcome to our boutique architecture practice. You'll be in great hands. Let our expertise in concept creation, construction knowledge, project costing and building management guide you to make the right decisions so you have the best experience and outcome.

We will help you effectively manage the fine line between budget and impact, so design decisions are made on the basis of value-adding without overcapitalising, which is a skill we use effectively for all our customers as we want you to benefit from the right advice from the get-go.

Residential Architects

We have a deep passion for home design, renovations, extensions and interior design. We love taking our customers dreams and breathing life into them whether the look is stylish, classic, bush, beach or modern contemporary. We will listen and create exactly what you want right through to the interior finish, colours and lighting and show you what it looks like with our superior 3d imagery every step of the way.

Commercial Architects

When it comes to commercial architecture we are committed to the design of inspired yet functional spaces. We believe all commercial design should embrace innovation as well as seamless building envelope usage. So whether you are a developer, builder, business or building owner and your need is for a new commercial fit-out, a new apartment or townhouse design project, the team at Billy Dawson Architects have got you covered.

What our clients say

My wife and I decided to build our dream house along the Gold Coast canals. We chose Billy Dawson as our architect and interior designer and could not have been happier. Billy was highly professional, very knowledgeable in his field and made the whole process incredibly smooth for us. We were constantly in communication and he showed us an impressive creative streak in his designs! He would always answer promptly and was very patient with us and all our questions.

We really love the clean, contemporary and elegant design of our house. He designed a house that had great open spaces, was energy efficient and most importantly to us, captured the open canal view with city skyline. He even guided us to select all finishing as well.

Building a new house is never straightforward. But Billy made it much easier by dealing with the multitude of professional reports the council needed and he dealt with all the technical issues that popped up during construction. Building our house has been quite a smooth and wonderful journey overall and we are very happy with the final results. We would recommend Billy to anyone without reservations.
