PROFILE & Testimonials

Pyramid design & drafting was established in 1995 by Darrell Grima, who is the Principal Designer. Darrell has worked in the Building Industry since 1987 as a Building Designer and Architectural draftsperson with distinction.

The business is based in the Sydney Metropolitan area and provides Building Design and Architectural Drafting Services for clients throughout Sydney and into regional New South Wales. We specialise in quality residential design and can hand craft a new home to meet your personal requirements.

The use of 3D CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) Software gives Pyramid design & drafting a distinct advantage in Building Design. Drawing concepts can be better developed and manipulated and drawing accuracy is of a high standard. 3D CAD Drawings present much better and are easier to read and understand. They allow you to see images of your home in true perspective and colour and watch the design come to life.

Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Australia, Darrell has gained ideas and creative influences that contribute positively to the work that he is passionate about. Darrell has gained a Distinction in Photography studies which also contributes to the creative composition and presentation of his designs.

Darrell treats every project with integrity and as a skilled and hard working “Artisan”, with each Architectural drawing being “Hand Crafted” with an eye for “Beauty and Quality”. This charism gift empowers Darrell to be an effective channel of God’s grace through his artistic and creative work which strives to beautify and order the physical world, and in doing so, gives glory to the Creator. 

The “Design” phase is the Most Important part of the entire building process.

A home should be an expression of oneself. Attention to detail and some artistic flare help create architectural interest and individuality. An emphasis should be made on making efficient use of the space within a building and maximising internal storage areas. The heart of the home – the Kitchen needs to be functional in its layout and flow openly into informal dining areas and indoor/outdoor living spaces. The home design needs to have aesthetic appeal, be practical and needs to fit within your budget. A building should be cost effective in its design and economical in its construction and ongoing maintenance.

Generally, building developments require a large financial investment and are in existence for the long term, therefore the importance of having a good design is essential. Good design and planning techniques, allow you to create a pleasant living environment and ultimately create a real sense of home.

Pyramid design and drafting’s aim is to obtain a design brief and help turn your ideas and dreams into a reality.

“Dear Darrell, Thank you so-so much for designing our beautiful home! From our first meeting, your priority was getting a complete understanding of our wants and needs for the design of our house. You wanted to make sure the design was going to suit our current lifestyle and the future of our family”.

 “Your advice and opinions were always towards the best outcome for us. You took all our inspiration pictures and hand sketched drawings and created everything we wanted and asked for in your first drawings (even adding special features to the design which surpassed what we had envisioned). Making sure each and every room was functional, comfortable, and making the best use of the space, whilst ensuring the layout flows and is family friendly. You made sure the layout worked but also had every window and door in the perfect place to create a striking facade, making sure the exterior of the home was timeless and beautiful and suited to its surroundings”.

 “After building and now living in the home, our appreciation for your work has absolutely magnified. We have settled in so quickly and absolutely love every aspect of the house and it is also loved by everyone who enters our home. All the features and rooms work perfectly for our family and I know it will continue to, as we grow and live here for many, many years”.
