At BOSTON DESIGN we specialise in exclusive residential home and landscape design predominantly on the Mornington Peninsula and Bayside Melbourne, but have and would be happy to travel further afield.
We are committed to providing innovative, site and client sensitive architectural design based solutions. We aim to create beautiful, simple, seamlessly functional and most importantly wholly unique environments.
Each commission is designed to reflect our client's individuality, needs, and above all is aimed at lifestyle enhancement through good, thoughtful design. We believe that the synergy between the built environment and its surrounds is of paramount importance.
In order to obtain these ends we create a customised palette of materials and design indicators. These are sourced from the built and interior environments and most importantly acknowledge the specific needs of each client. In doing so, we transform the exterior environment into a seamless extension of the home.
BOSTON DESIGN's prestigious design work has been extensively featured in numerous national magazine publications including 'Home Beautiful' and 'Your Mortgage' magazine, as well as in the The Age, Herald Sun's, 'Home' and 'Weekend' magazines, not to mention numerous local publications.

He has worked internationally for numerous Landscape Architecture practices and contractors in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, South Africa and locally for leading practices in Brisbane and Melbourne. Bruce draws on his extensive international expertise coupled with his ability to really listen to his clients.
His designs vary from classic to contemporary, both imbued with a fresh, refined look, whilst displaying highly individual design flavours. In conclusion, his work always adheres to two simple mantras, namely, 'Less is more' and 'Form follows function'
We offer a complete yet customized design service to suit the individual needs of each client. We are deliberately flexible so can vary our approach from simple design advice to conceptual drawings through to complete construction drawings for tender purposes.
Our drawings are created either by hand for the more conceptual drawings or by using AutoCAD, which is a 100% accurate drafting program. We can also offer a 3D design service using AutoCAD in conjunction with Sketchup and other more specific rendering packages such as Rhino and Revit if required.
We charge a $150 call out fee to Mornington Peninsula residents and $300 for Melbourne residents. During this hour long consultation we will discuss your design needs, likes and dislikes as well as any physical requirements, budgets etc. The visit culminates in the taking of site photographs and site measurements.
Further to this initial meeting, we can then give you a quotation for the design component. We will outline the degree of design resolution and hence what you can expect in future design presentations.
Apon full payment of the design fees we will (if required) quote the works. As the design has been paid for and is now your property, you are free to get quotations from other contractors.
We also offer a Contract Administration service to oversee the works undertaken by your chosen contractor. This service ensures that the works are carried out in accordance with the drawings/specification to our exacting standards. This service is usually charged at an hourly rate.
