Featured Reviews for Yarra, Victoria Architects

Jane Cameron Architects
Yarra, Victoria Architects
23May,2014
We wanted a garden studio that could also provide extra accommodation when necessary; we have a seaside location which draws family and friends at holiday time. Our house is a traditional 50's stone place so we wanted something to blend in but to also add some contemporary pizzazz. Jane listened carefully to our needs and not so definite brief but came up with a very interesting, practical design which we really liked. She also linked this space design wise to an enclosed courtyard and pergola; unifying the north facing and sheltered back yard. This was probably the only real specification that we provided, that all would function as a whole with scope to add through planting of coastal and indigenous plant species. Jane's creative flair certainly has achieved this, she was always responsive and efficiently came up with practical solutions when we had questions. It has been easy to work with her because of her willingness to focus on the task at each step of the way; keeping us on track in our meanderings! The builders have been impressed with her attention to design detail.
Mihaly Slocombe
Yarra, Victoria Architects
25March,2014
PROJECT MARCH 2014 We have been absolutely delighted by the total experience associated with the design, implementation and in the end, the completion of our remarkable "Hill House”. A day doesn’t go by without a sense of contentment as I smile at some design feature that just makes “sense” or an aspect of how we enjoy living in this space and place – it just “works”! We were absolutely delighted with the experience of designing our house with Mihaly Slocombe. The project is true to the importance we place on environmental sustainability, aesthetics and the clever use of amenity. In the end, the integrity of the creative design is a source of enduring pleasure to us. UPDATED JULY 2016 As our family expanded to the next generation [of grandchildren], we decided to return to the Architects who designed our family home, to create a suitable extension. The brief had been to create something complimentary to the existing design, be playful, functional, environmentally efficient and still aesthetically compatible with the existing home. To our immense delight, despite the obvious challenges and complexity to meet all aspects of the brief, all our expectations were not only met – but superbly exceeded. The project was implemented with a deft efficiency and professionalism and remained on budget and true to brief. What more could we ask for? Whilst I can’t imagine a further extension being required – if it was, I know exactly where I’d go!
Drawing Room Architecture
Yarra, Victoria Architects
19May,2016
Nicola completed a number of projects on my house during the early part of 2014. The first was to design a colour scheme for painting the interior. My only brief was "not white". What she did throughout was sympathetic to the vintage of the house, yet interesting and modern. Everyone comments on the colours and how each area of the house relates to the next, without being uniform. I have had photo shoots in my home for interiors magazines particularly interested in the colours. The next project was my small inner city courtyard. Nicola's design here has made brilliant use of the space, and it now feels like a beautiful "room" of the house, even though it's outdoors. Finally the bathroom. Here Nicola ingeniously created a bathroom with shower over bath, vanity, and huge wall mirror, all in space just over 2m squared. I would say Nicola's particular skill with my house was to take its smallness, and make it feel like an asset rather than a liability!
Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Yarra, Victoria Architects
10July,2014
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.
Ed Ewers Architecture
Yarra, Victoria Architects
29December,2015
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!
Field Office Architecture

Frank Built has worked with Field Office of Architecture on several projects over several years now and have always found them to be excellent to work with. As well as cutting edge designs which our workers and sub-contractors enjoy working on and delivering; Field Office have always acted professionally and with integrity; their drawings are always clear and thorough. When any unforeseen events have occurred, Field Office have acted with sympathy to price and design to resolve in a prompt and professional manner. We look forward to working on may more projects with this exciting firm.
Taylor Knights
Yarra, Victoria Architects
25August,2015
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.

tessellate architecture and design
Yarra, Victoria Architects
17May,2016
We engaged Tessellate for a renovation and extension to our family home. They really understood our needs and responded to our brief with a number of well thought out concepts which they went on to fine tune as we gave then feedback and further discussed how we would use the space and our lifestyle, before we came to the final design. Their ideas were practical and functional but also had a special design aspect that we would never have conceived of by ourselves. Steven Swain was very conscious of cleverly making use of the current structure to manage costs. We had a very strict budget and we worked together to prioritise the areas we wanted to invest money in and where we could save without losing the overall vision of what we wanted to achieve. The drawing were detailed and well thought out and the team went above and beyond to help with questions and clarifications before and during the build and they had a personal investment and pride in the overall outcome. The outcome is a warm and inviting family home that is a delight to live in and regularly gets words of praise from our visitors. I would use Tessellate again without a doubt.
Urban Creative Studio
Yarra, Victoria Architects
24April,2018
I engaged Andrew and Urban Creative after meeting with four architect firms. I chose Urban Creative as Andrew soon demonstrated his knowledge, flexibility and ability to design the property we desired on a site with a number of constraints and within a tight budget. Urban Creative provided all planning and architecture services from a feasibility study through to construction supervision. The planning process was very smooth and Andrew managed subcontractors (geotechnical, structural, traffic consultants etc.) to maximise efficiencies and ensure the desired outcome. I would highly recommend Andrew and Urban Creative.
Centrum Architects
Yarra, Victoria Architects
1November,2014
We approached Centrum Architects back in December 2013 to design a substantial renovation to a heritage home in Flemington this home was in need of a complete restoration. We gave Andrew Rowe and Ken Charles a brief of what we would like the finished product to become and needless to say Andrews Design was exceptional and better than we could of dreamed. The Brief was that we would like the home to be restored to its former glory and we also wanted to create a modern extension that would be interesting and cater for a growing family. Andrew presented to us a design that was an exceptional use of space, modern and elegant with some fantastic unique features. The process was collaborative and very efficient with great communication between all parties. The renovation is currently underway and we are extremely excited to be partnered with Andrew, Ana, Ken and the team at centrum. We are looking forward to project completion in september 2015. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew and Centrum Architects to anybody looking to create something special. Dylan Shirley
