Derek Raithby Architecture (DRA) is a Sydney based design studio specialising in residential, commercial and education developments.
Our design philosophy is realised through a collaborative approach of the design team, client and other consultancies to ensure a successful outcome for each and every project. Our success is a result of our innovation in design through careful planning, cutting edge technology and a willingness to think outside the square to provide an architectural solution that not only fulfils the client and architects vision but also the functional reality of the endeavour.
Our firm is committed to producing architectural designs that consider the life cycle of the building in its environmental setting as well as the social, cultural and economic framework of the clients vision. After consideration of these elements, strategic design initiatives are developed which consider and direct passive use of the building's mechanical, electrical, thermal and water consumption.
This process allows us to deliver workable and sustainable designs which provide not only a reduction of operating costs but also efficient construction, system longevity and increased user comfort and productivity.
Our office boasts a team of professional, skilled staff committed to providing a high standard of professionalism. Architectural services include design, documentation, 3d computerised modelling, Interiors, project management and other general advice.
