About Us

bàlay Vandyke is the coming together of two prominent Cairns based building design studios ~ bàlay Building Design & Chris Vandyke Designs. We specialise in open plan buildings that are drawn from Tropical, Asian and Mediterranean influences and formed to suit a distinctively Australian style. We are passionate about creating low impact buildings with a small environmental footprint, utilising passive solar design, shading and environmentally sustainable materials. Extensive client consultation results in a personal approach to each client's requirements within the environmental context of their property location and orientation. To achieve a successful indoor / outdoor living experience we pay particular attention to site conditions to ensure that mechanical cooling and heating is kept to a minimum. We offer a full range of services including conceptual design, 3D visualisation, structural drafting, interior design, tender evaluation and project management throughout the construction phase. Our wide ranging experience encompasses the design of resorts, schools and mostly private homes on the beach, in the rainforest, on top of mountains, nestled in valleys and secreted amongst suburban sites.
