Melbourne Design Studios (MDS)
Architects in Richmond, Victoria
"Our experience with MDS was fantastic. They explained the process clearly and engaged with us at every step along the way. When there was the inevitable minor problems with our build MDS were there quickly to ensure that it was dealt with quickly, which greatly reduced our stress. If I renovate or build again I'd hope to use MDS again."

K+ARchitects
Architects in Richmond, Victoria
""In the past we have built many different houses, this one was our eighth. K+ARchitects were involved from the beginning and were instrumental in fine tuning the plans to enable full use of the site and the spectacular views. The house has a bold presence in the streetscape. Kate and Andrew were great to work with, understood our requirements and so were able to transform them into a workable site plan. We love our house. It is easy to live in and full of natural light. We would not hesitate in recommending K+ARchitects to our family and friends"."

My Architect
Architects in Richmond, 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!"

"I've known Fooi professionally for a number of years now, and have collaborated with her on a bunch of community events. She is fantastically creative and designs beautiful houses. She's also very friendly and approachable - her huge bag of awards has never gone to her head. She would I am sure be an absolute joy to work with, I can happily recommend her to anyone interested in great design."

Tony Hampton Architects
Architects in Richmond, Victoria
"We engaged Tony to help us renovate our house. We had our own ideas on what spaces we would like. However we were struggling to understand what was possible with the existing building fabric, how to make best use of our small site, and how to accommodate everything we wanted within our limited budget. We looked at Tony’s own house prior to engaging him, and were amazed by how some inspired thinking and years of experience could totally transform a property. Tony spent a lot of time investigating how our house had been constructed (it was quite unusual), so as to ensure all decisions were cost-effective. A priority for us, was to construct an energy efficient home which would make the most of our corner block location in order to reduce the need for excessive heating/cooling. After investigating a number of alternatives, we settled on an option which incorporated two key concepts – construction within in a disused side setback (which we had never imagined possible, due to its proximity to the boundary), and a new living space with a cathedral ceiling. These two ideas unlocked our property’s true potential, and turned what was a dingy, worn-out house into a light-filled, modern home with everything we need - and which we absolutely love coming home to! Tony's years of experience, consultative manner, and innovative style assisted us in completing our project on time, under budget and with minimal stress."

Ed Ewers Architecture
Architects in Richmond, Victoria
"We have used Ed for both of our renovations and have found him to be a great architect. For our first project we used Ed for both the design and the project management of a small renovation. We loved the design which dragged a 1970s monstrosity of a house (think lots of mission brown and wood panelling) right into the 21st Century. Tweaks that Ed made to layout just made the house 'work'. We were exceedingly happy with the result. Ed and his team worked tirelessly behind the scenes so that while we had the usual decisions to make, any of those problems that inevitably turn up on the site were solved before they hit our radar. Our second project was based in Sydney (see Ed's project titled 'Springfield' ) and although we spoke with some local architects we didn't get the same comfortable feeling as we had with Ed. Our second renovation was a major undertaking on a heritage listed house where there had been multiple renovations done in the past and little coherence. The floorplan had small spaces left over that had no practical use and the house was very tired. We extended but only by a small amount but again by rationalising the floorplan we have ended up with a much more usable space. The end result is a gorgeous home. This time I was the project manager but Ed and his team remained on call through-out for whenever my builder or I had any queries. What I love about Ed is that we have achieved a great balance between gorgeous design and practicality. The space looks fab but it is also easy to live in and we love that!"

Di Mase Architects
Architects in Richmond, Victoria
"Di Mase Architects worked hard and skilfully to understand the problems and opportunities involved in our project. They provided appropriate advice about the priorities and several creative options for us to consider. Their documentation was detailed but very clear and easy to navigate. They gave great attention to detail, e.g. with fittings and finishes, and helped us choose from among the many products available. They advised on the appointment of a builder and very capably supervised the project."

Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Architects in Richmond, 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."

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 Richmond, 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 Richmond, 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 Richmond 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 Richmond, 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 Richmond, 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?
