About Us

What we do

It is our passion to provide fresh ideas and distinctive design solutions through our commitment to design excellence and environmentally sound practices in achieving our client’s desired outcomes, whether they are residential, community, cultural or commercial.

We recognise that every project is unique, requiring client specific solutions to deliver not only thoughtful and innovative spaces, but responsive, practical designs in a process we endeavour to make as stress-free as possible.

Why Detail 9?

Using our passion and commitment to design and architecture, we aim to deliver outcomes that respond to our clients’ needs and lifestyle, not conform to our sensibility. We work hard as a team, but remember to have a laugh, enjoy the process and create something special for our clients.

Who We Are

We comprise a small, close-knit team with diverse backgrounds in design and project management. We work closely with each other, builders and consultants throughout the design and construction process to develop responsive, practical and sustainable solutions for our clients.
