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.


From initial point of contact, Katrina and Alister were interested to hear and learn what was important to us when designing our home. They quickly identified the style of house we were after, and how it could work with our family and lifestyle.

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.


Exceptional buildings are the result of an effective collaboration between The Builder, The Client, and The Designer, with each playing their own significant role in the build process.
