Residential services

Stewart Kirby Design has a diverse portfolio of residential projects ranging from small apartments to multi-storey mansions. As a registered Architect, Interior Designer and experienced Urban Planner, I offer unparalleled end-to-end expertise across all aspects of residential project work.


Sometimes you need to explore a few ideas with an architect or designer, get guidance on whether your dream home extension will meet Council planning regulations, or seek professional advice on what to do about your neighbour’s future building plans. You might just want to chat about choice of paint colours, fabrics or floor coverings. That’s fine too.


The scale of design work can vary enormously. At the simple end, I can rearrange furniture to better utilise existing space and improve functionality. Medium scale projects can involve removal of internal walls and reconfiguration of spaces to suit revised needs. Large scale projects can involve the design and construction of a new home or extension to an existing home.

Project Management

I have a strong track record of delivering projects on time and on budget. I regularly work with other design and building professionals to ensure your project delivers everything you wanted.

Planning approval

All building work requires planning approval and each Council area has different planning regulations to which your project must conform. I am skilled at negotiating this byzantine labyrinth of rules and regulations and will advise you on the best way of getting your project approved with minimal fuss.

Project stories

I have prepared several detailed case studies for a range of residential projects.
