About

Adelaide architects specialising
in eco-friendly design

Adelaide architectural firm, Bohdan Dorniak & Co Pty Ltd, is an established name in sustainable building. Our friendly team of professionals have been delivering personalised architecture, planning and interior design services to projects across Australia since 1987.

Specialising in both sustainable architecture and strawbale construction, our design portfolio includes commercial developments, new homes, additions and alterations to existing buildings, aged care facilities, schools and educational institutes, and a number of government projects.

Our aim is to provide beautiful, modern architecture using environmentally sustainable materials and smart design to create functional living spaces. Whether you’re located in
Adelaide, regional South Australia, or anywhere else within Australia, we can develop eco-friendly designs that respond to the needs of you and your environment, both now and into the future.

Why choose sustainable architecture?

There are many advantages to using sustainable, non-toxic building materials. In addition to creating a healthier living environment, eco-friendly design can reduce your impact on the environment resulting in a more efficient building with reduced waste and running costs.

When designing your project, we work closely with you to understand what you wish to achieve. We consider your location, your lifestyle, what your plans for the future are. From there we make a range of recommendations based on factors such as orientation of the building, interior design, materials, water storage, solar, even landscaping, to ensure your design will fit your current and ongoing needs.
