About

Eight Six Design is focused on the creation of buildings and interiors that hold their own signature style.

Eight Six Design was formed as a practice in 2011. It was started by its current head designer, Brent Fitzpatrick out of a desire to create a new style, one that focuses on service delivery and our clients priorities. Based on the Central Coast of NSW, Eight Six Design has worked on numerous residential, hospitality & retail projects throughout the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle.

We listen to our clients, whose values are as diverse as the projects we have created for them. We are committed to achieving design excellence and fostering innovative design solutions that respond to our clients needs.

The difference between good & Bad architecture is the time you spend on it

Specialising in the planning, organising, securing and management of the required resources to achieve specific client goals. Our primary aim is to meet (or exceed) all of the project goals and objectives while adhering to constraints of time, scope, cost and budget.

Eight Six Design designed our fantastic new house. The final design has had many people asking us about the designer and we have referred new customers already. Brent’s ability to see potential faults and deal with council and certifiers made our project run like a well oiled machine.

I can't thank him enough and would recommend Eight Six Design very highly.
