Steve from Concept Studio was friendly and insightful in designing our beautiful house extension. With his guidance and practical knowledge he patiently explained how the various systems of our house worked (or failed to work) together to create a beautiful and functional home. We are very satisfied with his professionalism, attention to detail, willingness to dig deeper into the issues and to deliver on time.Read More

We had been contemplating a home renovation for at least three years. We wanted the renovation to be as perfect as possible but also within quite a tight budget. But we didn't seem to find someone who shared our vision Recently, browsing the HOUZZ website we happened upon the profile of Concept Studio and Steve. After reading through the Concept Studio website and also the glowing reviews on HOUZZ we decided to contact Steve. It has been one of our better decisions and Steve, the studio and his draftsman Michael have been wonderful to work with. Even though we didn't have much of an idea of costs to build and also final fit outs, we were upfront with Steve as to our budget and expectations. Steve took our ideas on board and offered some fabulous alternatives to some of our fanciful ideas. Steve is a realist with wonderful vision and worked within our budget. We genuinely appreciated Steve's input. It is great to engage with someone who has vast experience in the industry and is client focussed and works collaboratively. None of our questions went unanswered, even if they were trivial. Concept Studios have been patient and very easy to communicate with. There were many little details that we had not considered and perhaps Steve didn't need to bring them to our attention as it wasn't in his scope of works, but he did. With the plans in place we now look forward to our home being transformed into something special. Concept Studios and Steve have been fantastic.Read More

Loved working with Steve and his team. The plans are exactly what we are after, he sorted out everything we needed for us (engineer etc) and we can’t wait to commence the build soon!Read More

I have worked closely with Steve on a professional level for a number of jobs as a draftsperson. The way he approaches and undertakes each project is always customised. He not only listens to the clients, he becomes involved in each step and designs to provide the best outcome possible. While he does have a particular style, which his clients love, he never compromises a design by forcing his opinions and lets the design develop into functional and aesthetic spaces. He is always available for a chat and I haven’t seen him without a smile.Read More

I have been liaising with Steve on a professional level for over 10 years. He is the definition of a gentlemen, professional and great to deal with. What I love most about Steve is the quality of his workmanship and ability to provide great designs and always achieving a high level of compliance at the most fair and reasonable prices.Read More

Steve completed drawings for our home extension and organised engineering and permits. This is a very complex process if you are not an expert in this area. Throughout Steve provided a very transparent, respectful and timely service. He is always available to answer questions and queries and communication was and is the hallmark of this. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and would certainly use Concept again in the future.Read More

Steve has been a pleasure to work with right from the beginning. He spent lots of time with my wife and I listening to what we needed for our new extension, and was patient with us when we needed to make changes. He was also informative about the whole process and lined up suitable surveyors, engineers etc. We are now looking forward to seeing his design become a reality! I would highly recommend Concept Studio to others.Read More

My husband and I decided in our later years to build a new house and discovered Steve Drougas of Concept Studio through houzz. Concept Studio worked with us to create exactly the home that we envisioned, completely understanding our brief. This was a challenging job, as the space for the home was limited and Steve was able to include everything that we requested. He attended the site and assessed site conditions and constraints. Made initial inquiries regarding authority regulations and requirements. Provided recommendations for the appointment of other specialist consultants as required, including their fees. Steve Dougas is very easy to deal with, always contactable and sticks to deadlines. He listens to you as the homeowner and is respectful of your wishes, ideas and interests. He is not designing for himself – he is designing for you. He is knowledgeable and professional. His whole team is great to work with. Steve made what could have been a daunting process very easy and did it very quickly. We have no hesitation in recommending Concept Studio and would most certainly use them again ourselves.Read More

I employed Concept Studio to design my upper and rear extension including remodeling the existing internal layout. I consider Steve to be an asset to the building industry and have no hesitation in recommending him. Steve is committed to his practice and thrives under pressure as well as dealing with challenges head-on. I found Steve to be extremely knowledgeable whilst his initiative, enthusiasm and commitment have been the key to the success of our project. .Read More

Cannot speak highly enough of Steve and Concept Studios. The service and professionalism was second to none from start to finish...Read More

So refreshing to have engaged Concept Studio on our renovations. The concept right to the final design worked out brilliantly. Our builders where impressed with all the attention to detail, in the working drawings, which in turn carried through to a very smooth and hassle free renovation that we love. Any hiccup that usally arises with such a reno project was only a quick phone call away and was promptly sorted out. No hesitation in engaging andrecommending Concept Studio for any further works in the future. Ian RRead More

A great experience & journey to design what we wanted but a little frustrating at times with the slow turnaround for new drawingsRead More

Steve is a professional, engaging and consultative individual who is easy to deal with. Not afraid to challenge the thinking of the client and offer alternate approaches and throughs, however is respectful to the client's desires and wishes. Clarity of requirements goes a long way to ensuring that the end to end process is smooth and minimises frustration for both parties. Genuinely extends his services for the benefit of the client. Drafting services are good and amends Plan / Drafting mistakes (as no one is perfect) with limited pushback and delays. Thinks laterally and is able to provide alternatives to design challenges. Steve can suggest / recommend Interior Design, Engineering, Building Surveyor and Joinery Design services, however do your own investigation, as it is your relationship with these associated trades, which matters in the end, not Steve's. Recommended for value for money (investment), as not overpriced.Read More
