Welcome To Home Design By Vicki
So many houses look and feel the same, however one award winning designer has repeatedly come up with plans for custom built homes that have been widely acclaimed not just by her peers in the industry but also her clients.
Vicki Gowland was a designer at Brisbane's leading custom homebuilders, Courage Homes for over 10 years. She first studied at the South Brisbane Institute of Tafe where she Achieved her Associate Diploma of Applied Science ( Architecture) and then went on to further her study at the Queensland University of Technology where she Studied Bachelor of Architecture. She graduated winning best Architectural Student for her year and went on to work for both Architectural and Engineering firms before starting with Courage Homes.
Vicki has lived and travelled throughout Asia, spending a lot of that time in Thailand, where she takes a lot of her design inspiration from the architecture over there and as a result what has evoked are some beautiful sprawling pavilion style homes with heavy overhangs creating unusual effects by using novel ways to handle water runoff. It is concepts such as these that have won Vicki awards from the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC). One was an achievement award and the other for innovative ideas.
