Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"We were delighted with the design work Emma did on our extension in 2011. She was creative in her thinking, skilled in the execution of all the drawings and a clear and warm communicator. We particularly valued the way she listened to our own ideas and the respectful way she worked with and around them! Strongly recommend her services to others."

My Architect
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"We have always planned to renovate our existing house but had been unsure as how to overcome some flow and function issues. We wanted to add a bedroom/study, an alfresco entertaining space and a garage/carport onto our existing house. We had seen lots of renovations of similar houses but they always seemed to have something missing or were not quite right! The My Architect team were recommended after a chance conversation at a child's party - the initial meeting and concept plans really appealed to us, the idea of a relatively small outlay to see what the options and initial costings were. We contacted Cate at My Architect who set us up an appointment with Lyndal Williams. We had quite set ideas about what would be possible. Lyndal patiently worked through our needs/wants and has put together the perfect floorplan for us. It is quite different to what we had imagined and we have managed to tick off all the priorities as well as adding some wonderful extras that we feel will make our home function more efficiently as well as being a great entertaining space! We had initially planned to only use the My Architect team for the concept plans. However after dealing with Lyndal we felt that we simply had to continue to utilise her skills to help us complete the project. The set pricing for the My Architect services made us confident that we were clear about this cost from the beginning. So far we have completed plans for tendering and are waiting for building to commence in September. Cate has followed up and sought feedback along the way and despite our project taking quite some time we have never felt rushed! Lyndal has done a great job with our plans and really understood what we wanted before we did in some ways. She has also dealt with our questions and queries patiently!!!! We can highly recommend that anyone considering renovating or building use the My Architect team!"

Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"Rebecca was the architect and site manager for a substantial renovation to our house in Moor Street Fitzroy. The house, which had been converted in a very haphazard fashion into 3 apartments 30-40 years previously had great bones but needed considerable and skilled renovation to return it to its former glory as a family home. The building had a long and chequered history, including as a boarding house where Weary Dunlop lived as a student. We were keen that we retained the unique character and feel of the house and made maximal use of its position, natural light and views over Fitzroy Town Hall. Rebecca was a joy and inspiration to work with from the outset. She was innovative, rigorous, and listened carefully to our suggestions, especially around environmental impact and overall feel of the property. She was incredibly resourceful in sourcing products and ideas, which made a huge difference to the final design. For example, the suspended cupboards in the kitchen – a real winner given the relatively small size for storage – came from a 1950s design magazine. She managed the project meticulously all the way through, and worked extremely well with the builders and other contractors, who clearly respected her professionalism and skill. This was not an easy project – the house had been renovated repeatedly over the years and the legacy meant no wall was straight and no two doors the same size. The final renovation is superb – understated but spectacular. We haven’t had a visitor who hasn’t been amazed by the house and renovation. I’ve lived in over 40 houses and flats in the last 30 years and this is undoubtedly the best house yet. This is partly due to the original structure but also because of the renovation; I’m sure a less skilled architect could easily have made a dog’s dinner of the project. Rebecca also clearly has an aptitude and commitment to teaching and I know that she is heavily engaged in community and voluntary work in Australia and overseas."

Detail 9 Architects Pty Ltd
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"Detail 9 assisted us in renovating our old home into a fantastic modern home. We approached them when we were just starting out and they were amazing. We worked with them from concept ideas all the way though to the end of construction. We always felt that they listened to our needs and incorporated all that we wanted in our plans. They assisted us in finding a high quality builder and getting quotes and all the way throughout the build. Their knowledge of the building industry, design and styling is second to none and we couldn't be happier with the finished product!"

Keep an eye out for this emerging practice in the future, sure to be doing some interesting and engaging work."

Taylor Knights
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"I recently designed a front and rear landscape for a Balaclava project designed by Taylor Knights. I saw the house before the major renovation which was a fairly standard Edwardian with little space to extend beyond the existing footprint without diminishing the much needed outdoor areas. I thought this would be tough to achieve anything special. How wrong I was! Not only have they created extremely livable and open interior spaces filled with light, plus a private upstairs suite but it’s their considered choices using off the shelf cost effective materials in unexpected ways, that sets these guys apart. Wainscoting and standard pegboard by way of example, become jewels when handled with such care and without blowing the budget. Sure, there are some architectural tricks you’d expect from a young architectural firm, but they don’t take over and create unique textures that are very easy to live with. For me, the test of great design is when you look at the finished project and if you are not too sure what year it was completed then that’s a mark of great architects. They have achieved a ‘timeless’ outcome, which takes real skill and is why I would highly recommend Taylor Knights for a renovation or new residential build.

Inbetween Architecture
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"Inbetween Architecture were great to deal with on this extensive renovation which transformed a standard brick home into a beautiful modern home. Drawings were very detailed and thorough. Communication was excellent. They understand what can happen on a building site, and were very helpful and efficient in sorting out issues as they arose. We look forward to doing business with them again. Thanks to John and his team."

Ardent Architects
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"Justin and the team at Ardent Architects have been absolutely fabulous to work with. They could understand the vision we had in our head and translate it to paper without our ability to articulate it properly. They gave us exactly what we wanted and more, the result far exceeded our expectations and we WILL be using them in the future. Ongoing site visits meant that during construction they were able to tweek our finishes and enhance the ambiance of the final product! They were always available to do resolve build-ability queries and talk us though new materials and finishes we had not considered. Our house looks stunning and we are constantly receiving compliments on the design. We have been asked so many times who the Architect is that we put a sign on the fence. The team at Ardent Architects were able to all of our rather large wish list in the extensive renovation and importantly they have added immense value to the finished product. The wall of glazing and the void are a few of my favorite features and the volumes of the rooms have created just the look and feel we were hoping to achieve."

Robert Harwood Architects
Architects in Bentleigh East, Victoria
"I first contacted Robert Harwood after my husband and I decided it was time to renovate our home. Upon meeting with Robert we found him to be very professional and articulate. Robert was very attentive and probing with his questions so much so , that, by the end of our meeting he had drawn on paper a rough sketch of the overall design. These became our concept drawings which inspired and excited us to move forward. Now 2 years later since that meeting we are in the final stage of our major home renovation. Robert project managed for the most part and is still very involved always ready with professional advice or design improvements and costings. Robert has been great to deal with. I have enjoyed this journey and thank him personally for helping me, especially, fulfill this dream of mine . I would not hesitate in recommending Robert. Anita and Spiro Anemogiannis"

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 Bentleigh East, Victoria 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 Bentleigh East, Victoria, 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 Bentleigh East 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 Bentleigh East, Victoria 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 Victoria 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 Bentleigh East, Victoria:


  • 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?
