The #1 award-winning eco-home design and building company on the South Coast. 

At True North Design Co, we design clever, comfortable and thoughtfully-crafted homes. 

With more than 30 years of expertise and experience, we’ve helped to design and build hundreds of beautiful eco-houses on the South Coast.

Great design is at the heart of everything we do.

After all, when you consider that 90% of a building’s performance and cost is decided at the design stage,
poor design is just not an option.

Our focus on GreenSmart home design will save you money, provide 5-star comfort, meet your unique needs and protect the environment. Because great design shouldn’t cost the earth.

Whether you’re looking for a renovation or a complete new build, we’ll tailor our design services to meet your needs.

“Having good ideas, understanding the landscape, staying true to the brief, keeping a control on the budget and being open to suggestions, is exactly what you need from a design team. True North delivered on all these counts and also provided great guidance in the selection of a builder, as unfortunately the property is too far away for Tony to build the house!”
