Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Architects
"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."

Justin Humphrey Architect
Architects
"Justin guided us through the entire process from initial consultation about what was possible with our old fibro beach shack to the design and then managed the build. We love our new home and apparently so does the neighbourhood. Strangers constantly stop to tell us how much they like it and cars slow down to point and look."

CplusC Architectural Workshop
Architects
"There are many reasons why we are glad we chose CplusC over other architects. Firstly, their natural and balanced aesthetic strongly appeals to us and we are genuinely pleased and impressed with the quality of the construction of our home. Secondly, and as importantly, CplusC are both designers and builders. This has the advantage of avoiding disagreements between architects and builders, which meant a less difficult building process and minimises the unexpected costs that inevitably arise. Thirdly, CplusC are environmentally clever designers and builders: they design to minimise wasted construction materials; and their design and the materials they used means our ongoing expenses are reduced (we only need to turn the heater on for three or so weeks in the year, and don't use air conditioning, instead enjoying cross-breezes). CplusC have built us a beautiful home that our children will grow up in and we are happy to recommend them."

Danny Broe Architect
Architects
"I can thoroughly recommend Danny Broe. Danny managed the renovation of my house in Enmore over the period September 2010 - February 2013. The result has been the transformation of a small, dark terrace into a thoughtfully designed home full of light and space. From our first meeting I felt confident that Danny would give me not just what I thought I wanted, but a house that would work in the long term, and one that I would be happy to live in for many years. When we talked about what could be done with the house I felt they were fresh ideas, not simply variations of work that he had done before. While a major renovation is incredibly stressful I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with a professional architect who knew how to translate my sometimes rather vague wants/needs into a three dimensional space that is lovely and very functional. Danny and his team took care of every aspect of the renovation - their attention to detail is amazing. His quotation for the scope of work clearly outlined his fees, what would be done and what could be expected at each stage of the project. He was very good at answering my many questions, his advice was well considered and he explained everything. In addition to the clear fee structure, Danny gave accurate cost estimations which greatly assisted my budgeting. He provided detailed plans and diagrams and the council application went through without problems. He also managed the tender process and selection of builder, as well as managing the contract during the build.

Kart Projects | Architecture
Architects
"Rebecca Naughtin Architect has worked with Kart Projects for the past 2 years on multiple projects. I selected Kart Projects to assist me whilst I wasn't able to work (expanding the family) as I knew they would be a reliable team that would compliment the skills of my own practice. The directors of Kart are excellent designers with a growing portfolio of work. They work hard with their clients to achieve the best results and offer a broad range of expertise. Keep an eye out for this emerging practice in the future, sure to be doing some interesting and engaging work."

Arcke Pty Ltd

"We had an ambitious vision and modest budget for our character workers cottage situated on a small lot in a flood zone.

Light House Architecture & Science
Architects
"Jigsaw is the reason we have such a liveable home. Having lived in many houses, we had clear ideas of what we wanted - to build an energy efficient, light-filled home that would work with us as a family. We wanted clever use of space and storage, responsible use of materials and a beautiful nurturing environment to live in. Jigsaw had the expertise to maintain a creative approach while problem-solving the many limitations of a modern build on a Heritage listed block. The combined skills of the team provided us with a very positive building experience. We continue to recommended Jigsaw, and the novelty of our new home is likely to never wear off! We are very content and proud of our home that adapts to our needs and enables us to live a comfortable family life."

Architecture Republic
Architects
"Jess and Tristan are both extremely professional and a joy to work with. They came to our house to meet personally to discuss our needs and look at the property.They were extremely honest with their quote and were able to explain to us exactly what we would be able to do within our budget. Every step of the way they were friendly, helpful, and were able to keep our minds at rest by emailing us updates. After it was all over we were able to extend our loungeroom out and raise the ceiling. If we ever need help with an extension (or even a new house!) again we will definitely be giving them another call. Thanks guys!"

Detail 9 Architects Pty Ltd
Architects
"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!"

If your renovation is more than a simple benchtop replacement or roof re-tiling job, then it may be time to find an architect 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, 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 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:


  • 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?

Then browse architects’ latest projects and read reviews. You can also look through Photos of projects to find an interior architect or designer who has worked on a project similar to yours.
