Services & Approach
You might think of an architect as a professional who plans and designs buildings. That is certainly an important part of the job, but when you engage Dion Keech, you can expect a service that extends well beyond producing a set of drawings.
Dion has the expertise and experience to guide your project from the earliest design concept all the way through to construction, assisting with everything in between – from town planning applications through to the design of the cabinetry for the kitchen sink.
He will help you maximise the potential of your site, creatively utilise space and light and produce design solutions that will reduce running costs and maximise the energy efficiency of a building.
Some architects have a distinct personal style. That’s helpful if you’re looking for a particular type of building or want to hand over complete control of a project. Dion Keech has a different approach.
Understanding that the concept behind every concept is different, he takes his design inspiration from his clients – from you.
Dion listens. He listens to your aspirations, your patterns of your life and work and your brief. He believes that every project he works on remains his clients’ – not his – from start to finish.
Dion is a guide and facilitator – more a navigator than a pilot.
Although Dion doesn’t push a particular architectural style, he does adhere closely to some essential design principles:
- Simplicity – a building can be beautiful while remaining uncomplicated and practical
- Materials – durable, natural materials that have stood the test of time always outdo the flashiest new trend.
- Quality – creating lasting value by designing beautiful, innovative, and efficient spaces that will work tomorrow and decades into the future.
- Responsiveness – a design must respond to and fit within its natural context.
- Unity – buildings shouldn’t be spaceships that land on a site. Outdoor spaces are integral parts of any building.
Dion can offer his services on all types of projects.
His previous work includes everything from small home renovations to large, complex new builds.
