Dr Retro House Calls

About Us

Dr Retro is the Mid-Century Specialist. Since 2010 Secret Design Studio has been helping clients in Melbourne and Sydney with their mid-century and post-war homes which were built in the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. Our “Dr Retro House Call” service is for anybody who is thinking about renovating, or has started their planning, or building their renovation, who would like an experienced and professional opinion on any aspect of their project. Like an old fashioned doctor who makes a house call, we come to your home to answer your questions in a single visit of 2 to 3 hours. Our advisory services could cover anything from pre-purchase inspections, to a review of your plans, to assistance with colour and materials selection. We know from experience that there are a lot of designers out there who don’t really understand the many flavours of mid-century architecture as we have helped so many people with their retro homes. Some of these homes are well-known, such as those by Petit and Sevitt, Robin Boyd, Chancellor and Patrick, and also unkown homes that were done by speculative project builders, and everything in-between.
