We are incredibly lucky to live in beautiful Tasmania, which combines extraordinary natural landscapes and unique heritage architecture. On the other side, this means that any building design job, from the simplest to the most complex, requires a tailored strategy.

Operating as Gifford Building Design, we are an award-winning small business providing the very best building design services for residential and commercial developments, ranging from small alterations and
additions to new builds.

We will provide you with the high-quality professional drawings and documentation necessary to bring your ideas into reality.


How do we operate?

If you choose to work with us, we will guide you carefully through the design and documentation process for your building or renovation project – from initial concept and planning through to council building and plumbing approval. We will do our best to make it as smooth and as enjoyable for you as possible.

We’ve worked with many clients whose projects have been located across Southern Tasmania, thus we’re confident we will be able to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date documentation.

We’ll also collaborate with other consultants when their expertise is required. With years of experience in the Tasmanian community, you can feel assured that we only work with highly skilled, trusted providers.


What is our design ethos?

Our greatest passion is providing modern, individual designs that suit your needs, and take into account the opportunities and challenges of the specific location of your project.

All of our designs are stylish and sustainable: making the best use of light and space for a bright and airy feel, taking full advantage of your site’s aspect and views, and working in harmony with the surrounding environment. Energy efficiency is always a priority.

When working on a heritage project, we strive to preserve the authenticity and significance of a historic building, while incorporating contemporary values around accessibility, sustainability, and efficient use of space.
