Working with us

Our Difference

Each of our projects is unique because each household, and every site, has its own individual set of requirements. Our goal is to deliver an outstanding, cost-effective, and tailored sustainable design response that meets your needs now and into the future. We aim to go above and beyond your expectations. 


Peace of mind pricing

We are often asked: how much does it cost to work with a building designer or architect? At Maxa Design we offer peace of mind pricing by being upfront with you from our very first meeting to ensure your budget can realistically achieve your project goals. In this meeting we’ll get a feel for the size of the home you’re after and the desired building styling so that we can guide you on an expected range for build cost and building design fees. We’ll walk you through our design process which includes four meetings where the home’s size and budget is again reviewed – this gives you plenty of time to lock down any final adjustments before we get an independent price from a suitable builder or quantity surveyor. Our goal is to deliver great quality and value design though a deeply satisfying experience.


Peace of mind delivery

We pride ourselves on the systems we’re continually developing and improving to manage projects smoothly and efficiently because we know you want to be in your dream home as soon as possible. Through our experience we focus on helping you make the right decisions at the right time for a smooth, stress-free building experience. We provide 3D computer-generated images of your project, giving you a clear picture of the home we’re creating for you.

As sustainable design experts, we aim to deliver the environmental credentials and performance excellence for the home you’ve set out to achieve. For us sustainability isn’t an optional add-on but an integral part of the reason we do business.
