Dravitzki Brown Office

Pushing the boundaries of residential construction methods, the Dravitzki Brown Office was fabricated offsite within the confines of a steel engineering shop. The office was then transported to the site and installed.


Designs that incorporate our clients’ ideas, yet exceed expectations.

Its self-supporting exposed structural steel frame sits lightly above the ground on eight points rather than the traditional concrete slab. This method enables the structure to be exceptionally sound in a large earthquake scenario. As steel detailing is extremely technical, 3D modelling was employed to ensure the successful realisation of the design once onsite.


Katrina and Alister did an outstanding job designing our house for us; we liked their design philosophy and, in working through the design, we felt they struck a pleasant balance between aesthetic goals and practical and budgeting requirements for the home.

Dravitzki Brown’s design oeuvre reveals a strong commitment to ensuring the conceptual theme flows seamlessly throughout the build. Their structures echo a consistent design language, both in the overall form and the way materials are used, which resonate from interior to exterior. Extensive knowledge in complex detailing bring designs to life, aided by photo-realistic renderings which enables clients to view, and understand the vision, well before construction begins.
