Private homes

Our expertise in residential design will guide you through the design and documentation of your home, from the initial briefing to a concept design, selection of all materials and assistance with selection of a builder. The design and construction process can be stressful, yet a good relationship between client, architect and builder can make the process much more enjoyable. We have a team of builders, consultants and other collaborators with whom we have established relationships and can readily recommend. Whilst we prefer to offer a full architectural and interior design service from design inception through to completion of construction, we understand a client’s budget may not always stretch this far. We can tailor our services to provide you with assistance where you most require it.

Affordable and social housing

Our expertise in multi residential developments is available to community housing providers, not for profit organisations and government departments. Our team can assist with master planning a site to provide you with an understanding of what the maximum development yield will be. We can also assist with a yield analysis as part of a pre-purchase due diligence feasibility study. We can then provide a full architectural design and documentation service, including interior design and construction advice services. Our expertise also extends to designing houses and apartments which meet the Liveable Housing Australia and Specialist Disability Accommodation design guidelines.

Private and government schools

Our expertise in the education sector is evident in the creative learning environments we have delivered for various state schools. We provide master planning for future campus growth and design services for new buildings or refurbishment of existing buildings. We work with a regular team of specialist engineers, landscape architects and quantity surveyors and our full architectural and interior design services can be implemented at any stage to create the best spaces to learn and play in.
