CDI Architects specialises in residential design. Our work ranges from new units and apartments to domestic measure ups and remodelling. With our extensive experience, we find solutions to complex situations. Architect Charles Howroyd closely monitors the work of the whole office but acknowledges that a great deal of expertise has been “home grown” in the last 12 years.

New Houses

"My approach to new houses is to get a very clear brief from the client, gain a good understanding of their vision, likes/dislikes and how they want to use the house."


Grouped housing is a common form of infill development providing the ability for more households per hectare close to infrastructure.


Unit developments are commonly designed over two to three levels. They generally allow a denser yield than a townhouse solution.


Apartment buildings generally have a lift and height is limited by fire safety regulations, single level living and generous balconies providing 1, 2, 3 bedroom accommodation.
