Featured Reviews for Architects in Adelaide
Nicholas P Ingerson Architect
Architects in Adelaide
"Although only part-way through the project, we are finding that his knowledge of the industry, energy efficiency concepts, and problem solving skills are exceptional. His ability to remember the finer details of the project puts us at ease as we head into the build phase our home renovation. I think that engaging him will not only ensure that we get what we want from the build, but also enhance the finished product with deign input beyond what we would have been able to conceive on our own."

Warwick O'Brien Architects
Architects in Adelaide
"Warwick O'Brien Architects have been fantastic so far with my house plans. They have promptly drawn up great plans for a sustainable build, successfully lobbied difficult Council planners to get my requirements met, and promptly redrafted plans to accommodate changes (even waiving fees on one occasion because of unreasonable Council demands). I can highly recommend them. Sue"

JLN Designs
Architects in Adelaide
"James was very professional, punctual, informative and helpful. He removed a lot of stress and complication by dealing with council for approvals throughout the design phase of our extension. We knew mostly what we wanted to do but James was able to provide some valuable insights and ideas for us. His quote as an architect was very competitive among other quotes we received from draftsmen. The builder we engaged for our project commented that our plans were some of the best he had seen for an extension - which sounds like a pretty good compliment to me. We would recommend James to anyone looking for an architect."

Grant Lucas Architect
Architects in Adelaide
"I worked with Grant on a tricky garage conversion, Grant's knowledge of local planning restrictions made the design stage a breeze. Would highly recommend Grant."
- Andrew Hodges
Brett Aylen Architecture
Architects in Adelaide
"Brett is a breath of fresh air... He is a wonderful and wise person, who I found to be mindful, emotionally aware, and an excellent listener. His business has previously designed my office space that all visitors commented on favourably, and I look forward to the day that Brett designs and project manages our dream (climate responsive) house right at the beach. You will find that Brett is working with you and for you, every step along the way."

"I have worked with Yvonne on two projects to this date and have been impressed with her creativeness and helpful direction. Yvonne has good imagination with regard to functional and aesthetic ideas while at the same time keeping the project cost effective. I found Yvonne easy to communicate with and if I ever needed any clarification, Yvonne would not hesitate to assist. I will be using Yvonne’s services in the future."

Anatoly Patrick Architecture
Architects in Adelaide
"We would like to thank Anatoly for sticking with us through our design process, and delivering us an outstanding home design. That has the wow factor we wanted with form and function to enable ever room to take advantage of ocean views + main living room 180 degree view of coast and golf course. He listen's to all your idea's and let you have input with great advice on detail. Anatoly has an understanding that the flow and feel of a building must have a bit of theatre with light and shade. I could not recommend him highly enough if you want something special."
- Doug Keogh

Bohdan Dorniak & Co. Pty Ltd
Architects in Adelaide
"I have highly recommended Bohdan Dorniak architects to anyone considering a new build, renovation or an addition. Bohdan and his team are very knowledgable, professional and friendly. I first met Bohdan Dorniak in 2010, when my wife and I attended an open day at the Food Forest in Gawler, South Australia. Bohdan gave a presentation on energy efficient homes and passive solar design. Then he led a tour of the many straw bale buildings and structures on the property, providing lots of useful information and answering questions. We were impressed with Bohdan and his team and in 2011 engaged Bohdan Dorniak Architects to design an extension for us. We found Bohdan very easy to work with. He listened to our wants and needs and was able to incorporate these, along with site specific and budget restraints, council requirements and many green and eco design considerations, into a chohesive design. He contributed many of his own ideas and solutions along the way, such as a compact three way bathroom design that feels spacious and has a great flow, despite a very small footprint. Bohdan and his team liaised which council, got us planning and building approval and was happy to assist with any issues as they arose throughout the building process. To summarise, we had a very positive experience building with Bohdan Dorniak architects and can highly recommend. Oscar, Adelaide Hills, SA"

If your renovation is more than a simple benchtop replacement or roof re-tiling job, then it may be time to find an architect in Adelaide who can manage your project from start to finish. Depending on the architecture firm you hire, the scope can span from planning sustainable design into your renovations, to selecting furniture and even interior finishes.

How do I find the right architect for my home design project?


An architect is often the first person you hire for your project. Before taking steps to find an architect in Adelaide, ask yourself what you want to achieve from your renovation or home construction. Do you want to improve the liveability and sustainability of your home, or simply expand? What style of architecture do you prefer? Once you have established your motivation, research architects that have completed similar house designs in your locale and within a comparable budget to yours.

Undergoing renovations, house extensions or building a new home entirely can be stressful. For this reason, it’s important that you and your chosen architect get along and share the same values, especially if you require an architect to help you refine your brief. To establish this rapport, you may need to meet several times with the architects on your shortlist before making a final decision on who you hire. The relationship you have with your architect is very personal, and will involve discussions of your habits, hobbies and tastes, so you want to ensure you have picked someone you feel comfortable in sharing this information with.

Most importantly, you need to trust that your architect will manage your home improvement or house design within budget, while working with site constraints, and coordinating the relationships of all parties involved in the project.

Ideally, your Adelaide architect will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. Your architect may be needed to select and hire subcontractors (e.g. builders, engineers and landscape architects) just as they may need to negotiate contracts with stakeholders. A good client-architect relationship will ensure they are your biggest advocate along the way during construction.

Finally, remember that the most well-known or established architect may not provide the right architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project.

Questions to ask prospective residential architects in Adelaide:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • What types of renderings (3-D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (The architect's personal style could interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a project manager and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Do you foresee any complications with this project?
