Creative Director Lisa Yarker

My designs are inspired by my travels and being able to employ practical spaces that work and give a sense of belonging.

Australian residential building designer Lisa Yarker looks for more timeless quality in her designs that she believes will not date.

She incorporates a range of influences to meet, most importantly, her clients’ tastes and design requirements. It's about constantly adapting and taking on both past and present influences and employing them in new ways.

I like to describe designing a house somewhat like an oil painting... "It's a series of layers". The medium is layered upon the canvas with special techniques and effects, which is incrementally improved with each layer over time. It requires patience and time, allowing for each layer to breathe and dry, before applying the next. Only the artist can conceptually visualise the end result and therefore final appreciation should always be upon the sealing of the final layer.

Lisa directs a team of professional building designers and is co-founder & creative director of iwantthatdesign.com.au.

The team at I Want That Design has our working drawings back to us in record time each and every time. This allows us to be onsite building our homes quicker than ever before which also keeps our clients happy!

  • Since using I Want That Design for our colour elevations and floor plans, enquiries and sales have risen. The quality of detail in these 3D images allows our clients to really get a feel as to how their home will look when completed, which naturally assists clients to go to contract confidently and quicker...
