mid century modern new build advice

We are looking to knock down (current house in no way worth preserving) and rebuild a family home in mid century modern style. It’s a 736sqm block and we are thinking:
Single story
4 bedrooms (or 3 and a study)
Vaulted ceilings in the open plan kitchen/living/dining

We would like to go with a designer for the home design. Don’t have the money or the appetite for an architect designed house, just want something modest and easy to build with some nice mid century design features. We have a builder who we think can do the build.

I am no eye for design and my husband is even worse! So far we’ve found some pictures of facades amd floorplans that tickle our fancy but that is as far as we’ve got.

We would like to spend 350k (max 400k) AUD on the build. Don’t even know how realistic that is?

Any tips on the process, cost, design, how to go about finding a good designer, anything for this clueless Katie would be most appreciated!!
