Dieppe Design is a small
(but mighty!) architecture firm
Located in Sydney, we specialise in new builds, alterations & additions, interior renovations and Passive House Design.
We work closely with our clients, listening to their design and functional brief, how our clients live their life and what visually inspires them.
The first stage of our process ends in a presentation of unique and personalised concepts, leading to design development all the way to construction and turn-key. We use the latest technology including 3D imagery, video flythroughs and virtual reality to ensure our clients can fully experience our concepts.
This enables us to make changes early in the design development aiming for a seamless construction process. We want the journey to be an enjoyable collaboration between client, architect and builder. In fact, we often miss working with our clients once the project is complete!
Dieppe Design is an A+ member of the Australian Institute of Architects practice and certified in Passivhaus Design
Our consultants, suppliers and contractors are carefully selected and we are proud to share the same ethics ensuring our clients are looked after.
We feel strongly about the environmental surrounds of each project and the impact it will have on the locale forming part of the design process. Dieppe Design has detailed experience of projects located in bush fire prone areas and any constraints or limitations of the land are thoroughly considered.
As certified Passivhaus Design Architects, clients can comfortably choose to incorporate Passive House Design concepts or certification into their project. Our aim is to create exceptional architecture & interiors that does not impact the future of our planet.
To date, Dieppe Design has been inspired how each client lives and connects in their spaces. We learn and evolve from every project looking forward to what our future clients may show us on the next journey.
Dieppe Design is a certified Passive House Designer
As members of the Australian Passive House Association, we believe in designing smarter, healthier and more sustainable homes. As architects and designers, we have been given an opportunity to change the future and help build a better planet for the generations to come. In our view Passive House, or Passivhaus, is the best way to achieve this.
It is considered the most rigorous, voluntary building
standard in the design and construction industry. This methodology is more than window placement and cross flow ventilation. Passivhaus is a scientific assessment and results in a building that requires 90% less heating and cooling energy compared to a conventional building.
Sub urban and urban areas do not have the privilege to choose window placements, best cross ventilation and off grid living. Passivhaus can give residents in cities the benefit of clean living until the rest of the world catches up.
Why Passive House Design?
Passive House is a proven, tested and measured way of ensuring a healthy, sustainable, and economical home. Here are just some of the reasons we think it is the way to go:
- Cost savings in the long run
- Almost complete off grid power
- No mould and improved air quality
- Long lasting quality
- Comfort, in particular thermal comfort
