What makes Urban Design Solutions so special?

We are always up front with you. We value your opinions and what you are looking to achieve, and will also share our professional opinion on what we think will work best. We are transparent and explain things clearly all the way through the process.

We think imagination and creativity are more precious than gold, but we don’t want your ideas to exist only in your head. So, we use cutting-edge, innovative technology, including 3D rendering, walk throughs, and even virtual reality (yes, it’s as cool as it sounds) to help you visualise what your home will look like. Then we use every tool at our disposal to make it happen. We understand the construction industry, making us well equipped to design plans that can be translated into reality.

We’re not mind readers… but it’s our job to be. We ask questions, we listen, we research, and we don’t stop until we’ve understood exactly what you’re picturing in your mind. Not just the style and the basic details, but even your personal take on the style, and what it is you love about those details. You’re not just a page in a portfolio to us—we genuinely care about seeing your ideas come to life, it is our goal and passion to improve our client’s lifestyles through improvements in their living space.

We know building or renovating can be stressful, so we do everything we can to avoid nasty surprises for you, and keep the project flowing as smoothly as possible. Before we even meet with you, we’ll research the site and find out any constraints. We’ll work out what other consultants you’re likely to need and give you an estimate of what they’ll likely cost. We’ll even manage and follow up the consultants throughout the preliminary stages of the project and can help you in finding the perfect builder.

If you start with inaccurate or unclear plans then it is likely you will suffer timely and expensive problems and delays during construction. We don’t rely on existing plans, or anyone else’s accuracy—we do our own measuring. You know the saying, “Measure twice, cut once”? We take it seriously. We make the plans clear and easy to read, which helps you to understand the drawings and helps in the approval process. (It also saves you paying for builders and contractors to stand around on site, trying to decipher unclear plans). We prioritise accuracy, clarity, and consistency, and the builders we work with regularly thank us for it.

We don’t settle for second-rate design. We don’t cut corners. We take all aspects of design into consideration, including form and proportion, orientation, energy efficiency and sustainability. Everything we do is done for a reason and with a purpose. Our Team of building designers in Brisbane strive to raise the standard of the built environment. We only recommend builders from a network of high-quality professionals, so we know you’ll be happy with the end product.

Great team, service and results.
We used Urban Design Solutions to update some existing renovation plans for us, and what an important decision that proved to be. Not only were they fantastic to deal with, but the plans transformed the home design leading to a brilliant layout. Additionally their contact list of recommended suppliers made our overall process easier and helped us find a builder that we rave about (Built by Athena). Everyone always says how unique -to love your builder – but we truly do! thanks Dave, Jodie, Jana and the Urban Design Solutions team.

Dave and his team from Urban Design have helped us with multiple projects for home renovations over the last ten years. We have found their service to be very professional with great results on our renovations. Dave can explain and break down complex design ideas which we highly appreciated. We highly recommend Urban Design and look forward to working with Dave and the team for our future projects. Jay & Family

Massive shout out to Dave, Andrea and Joanna for all their work on the renovation/extension on my house in Hendra. From the initial appointment with Dave to the subsequent meetings with Andrea and Joanna they have been a pleasure to work with. With the house almost finished I can see just how brilliant the design they created is. I would highly recommend getting interior design included with the plans especially if you struggle to make decisions as it takes a huge amount of stress out of build. Thank you Urban Design Solutions. Lauren Buchanan

Right from the outset of handing the team at UDS our draft plan, the ability to bring that to life with incredible creative talent was a breath of fresh air.
We’ve been in the property space for sometime now and would recommend the services of Dave and the team in a heartbeat.
Super happy…thanks guys, see you for the next project!

I worked with Dave Russell and Jana Crnjanin for the subdivision and renovation of my Queenslander property in Balmoral. They were incredibly professional and talented. I was provided with prompt responses to questions and advice offered throughout the whole process. Jana also produced a design that would fit the budget for the project and also shared the 3D renderings (where you could walk around and experience the design). I would highly recommend this firm if you are in the market for design services that fits the bill and exceeds all expectations.
