Steve Drake

Steve Drake is the principal of SDA, an Architectural and Construction firm that practices across all facets of architectural design and building.

Steve began his journey in hardware as a junior at school, from there to a carpentry and joinery apprenticeship, and on to a foreman’s role with a mid tier construction company in north Qld.

A desire to contribute at a higher level led Steve to an Architecture degree.

Steve worked at several Architecture firms before branching into his own Architectural Design and Construction Company

Design and Construct

Arcstruct completed a multitude of projects across SE Qld, ranging in scope from boutique modifications and extensions to high end residential projects, town house developments, vet surgeries and commercial buildings. One of the key focuses at this time was to experiment with traditional construction methodologies to derive interesting and inspiring results.

Urban Strategies

A consultancy role with some of Australia’s largest developers seemed the logical path to influencing a better design outcome for a greater reach of people. Springfield Land Corporation, Multiplex and Stockland in the mix.

Early Learning

Steve has a passion for the hands on approach to the design and build process.
