Featured Reviews for Architects in Sydney
Utz-Sanby Architects
Architects in Sydney
"Duncan was always a pleasure to work with. His plans were very accurate and detailed which meant there was no need for guess work from the builders. Utz Sanby have a high level of knowledge and experience when it comes to building a house which is comfortable, works with the environment and that just makes sense. Our home at Whale Beach turned out exactly as planned, within budget and with no compromises. It elicits admiring looks and photographs from people walking past every day. CAD 3 D drawings and multiple designs and models were provided in the design phase which made our decisions very easy to understand. Duncan was always eager to listen to my suggestions and incorporate them into the design. I did not ever feel that he was pushing me into creating a trophy house for his portfolio but rather a home that suited our family in every way. I highly recommend Duncan and Utz Sanby to anyone considering building a new house."

Danny Broe Architect
Architects in Sydney
"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.

Chateau Architects + Builders
Architects in Sydney
"Chateau designed and built our wonderful family home. We did our research in advance, including speaking to people in the industry, and the Chateau name was consistently appearing at or near the top. We cannot speak highly enough of Chateau. The design, build and post-build support experience was absolutely first rate. Their commitment to quality was unwavering - they genuinely invest in their well-deserved reputation. They answered all our questions along the way and took pains to ensure we were across the issues and comfortable with where things were at. You will undoubtedly find cheaper options out there if cost is your sole decision variable, but when you're considering an investment decision of the significance of a 20-30 year family home, for us it was about getting the right balance of quality and value. We would be happy to speak personally to anyone considering building with Chateau"

Scott Weston Architecture Design PL
Architects in Sydney
"Scott Weston is one of those creative architects who can use his incredible skill to bring a truly unique and highly desirable design to life within a budget and a deadline. I had a great time seeing my home go from an idea to reality, and it is a true reflection of the way I life and the professionalism Scott brings to a job. I could not recommend him highly enough and from my experience, is a step apart from most architects."

As an architectural Photographer I work with Architects ever day. i chose Justin to design our Home because of his understanding of Scale and space, hie understanding of material and timing and his professional approach to the brief. My highest recommendation. Tyrone"

MM+J Architects
Architects in Sydney
"David from MM&J gave me a brand new apartment - taking my ideas/ brief for a kitchen and bathroom and delivering on it with much more. What was once a dated & cramped early 2000s apartment with pretty cheap fittings now seems luxurious and super modern. It reflects my hubby and my style without being fadish. I am sure we will love it in 10 years as much as we do today. He worked with great builders and made sure the process was a painless as possible. The job was delivered within the time he'd quoted - which is important when you have to live elsewhere while it gets done."

CplusC Architectural Workshop
Architects in Sydney
"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."

Dieppe Design
Architects in Sydney
"We've used Dieppe Design for two renovation projects - a two bedroom unit that needed a total overhaul and a small 1940s house that needed more space and updating and we couldn't be happier on both occasions. Dieppe Designs presented us with modern, efficient concepts that were flexible to our needs and budget. The work was done in an excellent timeframe and communication with our builders and council was seamless. Couldn't recommend highly enough."

Kreis Grennan Architecture
Architects in Sydney
"I worked with Christian Grennan of Kreis Grennan when redeveloping two Torrens title dwellings in Glebe. It was a tight site with a dilapidated cottage and the neighbor’s didn’t want any more dwellings in the area. Kreis Grennan organized a meeting with the neighbors at a local pub prior to council submission and presented the concept design. It was a very positive experience, where everyone could ask questions and get honest answers. Not always answers they wanted to hear but answers that were considered. The meeting made the whole process run smoothly including the development application and subdivision. Construction drawings were produced with enormous attention to detail so my team knew what was required. The end result is fantastic. I would be happy to recommend Kreis Grennan to anyone looking for a quality architect"

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 Sydney 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 Sydney, 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 Sydney 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 Sydney:


  • 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?
