Design Inc

Born from three Australian architecture and design practices coming together in 2000, DesignInc is a powerful union of design talent, professional expertise, and multidisciplinary skills.

When DesignInc’s journey began in 2000, their architectural heritage was already well established. Each firm had a legacy of at least 30 years of experience. The earliest started in 1905 when Alex S. Eggleston FRAIA began practice in Melbourne, leading to the establishment of renowned architectural practice Eggleston, Macdonald and Secomb in 1954.

From the outset, DesignInc has been a leading advocate for positive cultural evolution in architectural practice. Their actions include embracing diversity and family-friendly workplaces, signing up to the Australian Architects Declare Climate and Biodiversity Emergency, adopting carbon-neutral systems and progressive mental health initiatives, and acknowledging the relationship between the environment and the design thinking of First Nations peoples.

In 2020, Nguluway led by Wiradjuri architect, Craig Kerslake, joined with DesignInc to bring Aboriginal leadership and cultural knowledge to the architectural expertise of DesignInc by forming Nguluway DesignInc. DesignInc continues to evolve.
