Our designs

Loving where you live means having a house you look forward to coming home to. It means having a smile on your face every time you open the door. It means having space when you want it and privacy when you need it. It means having a home that's the talking point of the street. Metricon's innovative designs are built on more than 40 years of listening to Australians and their families, and what they want. Our DualOcc by Metricon designs are shaped by a desire to research, develop and innovate. Homes that are built to let in natural light into every living area are loved whether you live in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, and they have to be flexible enough to cope with a large, small or even sloping block. Metricon's designs are also focused on reducing the risk unit dwellings can attract, by ensuring they have the best chance possible of complying with local council planning laws and guidelines.
