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.


Alister and Katrina were extremely easy to work with and quickly picked up on what we needed and the resulting house exceeded our expectations. Their professional partnership allowed us access to both Alister’s design expertise and Katrina’s floor plan and interior design skills. Our family and friends have all been blown away by the beauty of the house and we are very proud of it.

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.


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