Award Winning Glow Design Group specialises in designing energy-efficient buildings that are functional and beautiful. We are passionate about design and work hard to ensure our clients enjoy the journey and love the creation. Good design is of utmost importance: high thermal efficiency not only helps save the environment, it saves on ongoing costs by using energy wisely. The studio began as Timothy Ellis Building Design-but has formed into a design group to cover the various other aspects of building design including interior design and photography. Glow represents the sun and aspect. Designing for the aspect and utilising energy wisely will save vast sums over the life of the project. Specifying details on the plans leads to less costly contract changes and the plans are translated into built form as planned. Good design ensures higher resale values.  We design on the latest three dimensional software allowing for pre-visualisation and walk through in the design phase. We are inspired by past and present Architecture and design and keep up with interior design trends whilst appreciating a classical style.

Timothy Ellis  principal After graduating from Victoria University I worked for a Swiss German Architect which was a great learning experience in coming up to date with cutting edge Architecture and design. I was able to study the thermal importance of buildings which I went on to later utilise by doing a thermal performance accreditation. I later became registered and set up a business Timothy Ellis Building Design. With the added skills I wished to form a group which could utilise not only the building design and drafting skills I had gained but also include those of those around me including interior design and photography. We are able to work from many different angles on projects and also work alongside other professionals to ensure the designs are the best they can be. The design process often involves the team feedback and owners are also a vital part of their design. I have always aimed to design for your environment. I am proud to say that over my career my drawings have been presented on Belle Magazine online, a project I did drawings for was featured in Grand Designs magazine in the UK. I am on the Committee of Management of the Building Designers Association of Victoria. I have also taught a night class of Sustainable Building Design and Design Presentation of Architectural Drawings at Victoria University. I keep this sustainable approach to the forefront when designing.
