We love designing homes.
It’s no accident that people talk about ‘making ourselves at home’, or things ‘getting you where you live’. Homes are important to us.
Home is where we feel safest, where we can be ourselves most honestly, and where we have the opportunity to shape our surroundings to match what we believe the world should be.
By the time our clients contact us, they’ve had a lifetime’s worth of research in a laboratory of different houses. They know what works and what doesn’t; what suits them, and what they want. That’s a fantastic resource for any architect who knows how to access it.
We believe you are the expert in your own life, so our most important design tool is a well-considered question. At our first consultation we’ll have a great many questions for you; questions about you, about your values, about your family and your environment. We don’t sketch anything until we know something about you.
Throughout the design process, we want you involved, textas on butter paper, paint chips in hand.
Whether it’s a new home, an extension or alteration, or a multi-residential project, we’ll work with you to create a beautiful, practical and efficient design that tells your story and helps you live the way you want to live.
We’ll help you make your design energy and water efficient, with sustainable materials. We can deal with councils, permits and consultants on your behalf. And if you need, we’ll work with your builder or one of our own building network to see your project to completion.
