“We highly recommend Raw Concept Designs.

We originally struggled to find someone who would even return our calls or would actually listen to what we wanted. However with Raw Concept Designs, we called and they came out to our house for an appointment, if not the same day, the next. They were prompt, reliable and listened to what we wanted. We found the entire process to be seamless.

Raw Concept Designs went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of for our project.

They made everything really easy and that’s exactly what you want, could not fault the service at all!”

Thanks Natalie & Ivan

“I was just thinking about emailing you in regards to today!

My morning with Kathryn was really good, in fact it was excellent! I can not tell you how great she was. She has really opened my eyes to what needs to be done. Her great insights and ‘tricks to sell’ are invaluable. She ticks all the boxes for me. Professional, On time, Friendly and really engaging in the process.

I can’t thank you enough for recommending that she be part of the process. Its really helped me with my approach.

As always – Thank you.”


“Personally I enjoyed all my dealings with Raw Concept Designs, nothing was too hard and they always listened to my ideas and gave opinions and/or other more appropriate options. Everything was done well before deadlines and very professionally.”


“We would like very much to thank and express our deep appreciation for all the help and support that Raw Concept Designs gave us throughout the process of not only getting architectural plans but also applying for consent for our project.

They kindly and patiently talked through the alternatives to consider with the plans and gave us valuable information to ease the process of complying with the demands of Strata Management.  They were always available to answer any questions and promptly replied to our messages and emails.

We unreservedly recommend Kathryn Carruthers and Raw Concept Designs to anyone seeking their services.”

“Raw Concept Designs understood my vision for the extension and renovation from the start. They turned my childlike sketches into amazing plans and held my hand through the whole process  DA and Council. The house and space is better than I expected to be and I put it all down to getting it right at the beginning with the design and plans.”
