At DesignInc Sydney, we strive to lead change through our projects and culture.
The DesignInc Sydney studio has won multiple industry awards for our supportive, inclusive and equitable work environment. We strive to maintain a culture of collaboration, supporting each person to reach their professional and personal potential.
Design is at the core of everything we do
Design is in our name—and it’s in our DNA. For every project we brainstorm, workshop, sketch, model, review, discuss, present and research at every step to get the best possible design solution.
Incredible projects across a range of portfolios
Our projects are changing the cities, suburbs and regions on which we all live, work and play. We design award-winning schools, parks, homes, railway stations and much more.
Our landscape, urban design, interiors, architecture and master planning teams really do work together to create masterful solutions to difficult problems.
Our people connect through work and play
Every week there is is something happening—Friday drinks, family picnics, bowling, lunchtime walks and even ski trips!
With over 110 experts in architecture, interior design, landscape, urban design and master planning, the breadth and dept of our team allows us to deliver with efficiency and competence.
We understand the complexities of designing schools, workplaces, community hubs, boarding houses, master plans, recreation facilities and transport infrastructure. We are driven not only by the desire to create beautiful places—we want the environments we design to be equitable and accessible for users. Crucially, we also want the people who design them to be happy and healthy.
Our Sydney studio is on Gadigal land.
Our people are key
DesignInc Sydney is a buzzing team of over 100 experts in architecture, interior design, landscape, urban design and master planning, all supported by our HR, marketing, operations, IT and accounts specialists. The breadth and depth of our team allows us to deliver with efficiency and competence. We strive to maintain a culture of collaboration, supporting each person to reach their professional and personal potential.
Balancing work and life
Regular social events such as Friday night drinks bring us together, our flexible work and paid parental leave policies allow our team to find a happy work/life balance, and internal mentorship / training opportunities ensure our people continue to learn and develop on their professional path.
Making a difference
The quality of our urban environments has a fundamental impact on our daily lives. High quality design makes an essential contribution to our economy, our natural and built environment and the liveability of our cities. We believe innovation and design quality should not cost more than the standard ways of building.
Design for people
We start with the premise: How can design improve people’s lives? It is our role and obligation as designers to add value to our client’s projects by innovating. Innovation should deliver more with less. It should strive for an integrated architecture that is visually enriching, socially responsive and ecologically restorative.

This large team feels like a small team. Everyone works hard, and everyone’s got their own focus, but our supportive culture means that people enjoy themselves, and when you are enjoying yourself you get more out of it, and the work itself is better.Cameron Martin
