About Me

Welcome to my world of building design in all forms – from interior design to wider space – urban and town planning. I try to promote sustainable building and environmentally sensitive building design solutions.

My name is Danka Stijepovic and I have passion for Vernacular sustainable architecture, heritage conservation,adaptive reuse, mid century design, colors,  simple with big style. My love for buildings originally comes from love of art and creative drawings. I hold Master in Architecture (Belgrade University) and hold diploma and Diploma in Town and Regional Planning (Sydney University).

During years I did work in various architectural companies, local Councils and now in my home office and I love what I do. I gained experience in residential, retail, institutional (Museum, Courts rooms) both –locally and internationally. Working on various projects, I have developed an excellent working relationship with various local Councils, and I am familiar with their requirements and procedures.



Our Philosophy

Danka Design Studio projects have a mission to create a practical and beautiful built environment in harmony with natural world. For each project, small or large, an understanding of the wider social, historic and spatial context in which its site lays is carefully considered. Every site has unique opportunities and constraints and therefore requires equally unique design solutions. In the same time we ensure all our designs are individual and personally relate to our clients, and enable them to live in spaces that enhance their health and well being. Each project has its own identity.

The experience of clean space, light and colour is important in our design practice. We keep the design principles simple and uncomplicated to allow ideas to develop with clarity. We always follow the design process and observe the elements and principles of design.

It is important that the design is being customised to the client’s needs and budget whilst also incorporating the input and values of the designer. Close collaboration with clients is an essential part of every project. Danka Design Studio has undertaken all range of projects from small kitchen or bathroom renovations to bigger projects. No job is too big or too small. We take it with the same enthusiasm and professionalism to the satisfaction of our clients.

The personal service means you will deal with the same person from start to completion during design process (from initial design to Council approval).The principal designer is flexible with her hours, being available outside of usual business hours
