Established originally as DIAMETER in 1996 by Brisbane architect William Driml, Urban Solutions Architects is a small, client focused practice providing architectural services to builders, developers and individual home owners.
With a strong belief in a collaborative approach to design and a capacity to work closely with builders and developers we have a proven ability to deliver practical, cost effective design solutions without compromising the design integrity of the project.
In conjunction with respected western suburbs builder Living Homes International, we were awarded a silver medal in the 1996 HIA Home of the Year Awards as well as awards for Best Contract Home in two categories in the 1998 QMBA regional awards. The relationship with Living Homes continues to this day, having been the first preference of Director, Frank van Hest, for 3 of his own homes as well as countless new home & renovation projects for Living Homes’ clients.
We have extensive experience in designing within the constraints of local planning codes and in guiding projects through the Development Approval process having designed many small lot homes & multi-unit dwelling projects as well as many projects requiring compliance with the character provisions of the Brisbane City Plan. For our commercial clients, we aim to maximize the development potential of sites whilst still producing high quality living environments and are increasingly required to provide unique solutions for difficult or irregular sites.
We have been proud to be involved in projects ranging from minor additions and interior projects to multi-million dollar residential developments and we pride ourselves on the fact that clients return to us for project after project. It’s not surprising that many of our new clients are referred to us by existing satisfied clients.
The practice was in a hiatus between 2007 and 2102 while Will applied his skills to the challenge of leading larger projects with respected studios Mondo Architects & BN Group who are recognised as industry leaders in their respective fields of residential & retail architecture.
In early 2013, the practice was re-launched as Urban Solutions Architects. The rest, we’re yet to write. We invite you to be a part of our future success.
