“Working with highly corrosive salt environments the Weathertex Selflok system conceals the fixings of the product, which is a very important factor.”
Don Osborne Background
Architecture began for me in high school when an uncle asked me to design him a new home. Later, I began my proper working career as a kitchen designer (after trying waiting and shaping surfboards) then progressed to working with a master building company then architects(Bruce Rickard, Geoff Malone and Graham Boys) before finally qualifying as an architect myself in 1992. During this time, I was privileged to work on a large number of varying design challenges and was relied on to provide practical building construction expertise in the design and documentation process.
Don Osborne and Associates
Don Osborne and Associates started in 1991 when my family and I moved from Sydney to Bangalow, to have a healthier lifestyle and for me to finally run my own practice. My wife and I are the only staff and I engage an outside drafting contractor when necessary. I still enjoy drawing by hand and will continue to do so for as long as possible. We specialize in beach homes (usually total remakes), heritage conservation, and any other type of work required of us from hospital re-planning to general commercial and specific purpose industrial buildings.
