At Adam Hobill Design we specialise in the creation of creative and thoughtful residential designs to compliment your family and your lifestyle. We ensure that our designs are responsive to the specific needs of each client through our collaborative approach to design. We have been designing award winning homes for Canberra and southern NSW families for 15 years and we have been featured in House & Garden, Home Beautiful and Inside-Out magazines. We work with people who are interested in high quality design and who will typically have a budget of $350,000 plus for extension and renovation projects and $600,000 plus for new homes. Adam Hobill Design is a boutique design practice and we are known for bespoke building design services that are personable & professional as well as creating homes that are both functional and striking. In our experience most people aren’t familiar with the process of having a home designed, getting approval for it to be built and then engaging a builder. Undertaking a building project is a significant investment and it is important to get it right. Selecting the right designer is the critical first step on the pathway to your new home. The range of services and insight we offer, including design, presentation of concepts, high quality documentation and assistance with quoting and finding builders ensures that you have the best possible chance of completing your project without the stresses and difficulties that can occur. We believe our services are the most thorough, professional and cost effective in the market place. Our ultimate goal is to bring dream homes to reality, and for you to enjoy the process of building. We are excited by the opportunity to be involved in the enhancement of your lifestyle through the build of your new home. Adam Hobill has also recently published his first book; Nail it! take control of your building project and save thousdands. In the book, Adam has set out to achieve a simple goal; to educate and empower homeowners to give them knowledge and confidence to successfully complete a building project in a way that is cost effective, with less stress and less risk.

Adam and his team designed and guided us through the renovation and extension of our home in Narrabundah, an old monocrete cottage which had been extended once before. We didn’t want to knock it down and knew with the right design it could be a warm and functional home. We approached several builders to ask who they admired amongst designers and architects in Canberra. And Adam’s name kept coming up. We talked with others, but from our first exchange, Adam and his team were so easy to deal with and keen to understand how they could help realise our renovation. It was an easy choice to go with Adam. Adam listened to our ideas, guided us towards practical and attractive options and nailed the design very early on. Together we tweaked the plans and landed quickly just what we wanted. His advice on trusted builders to approach made the contracting process straightforward and led to the selection of Prostyle builders, who were excellent. We are thrilled with our new home. With Adam’s support we now have a warm, functional and attractive home for our family that we’ll be in for a very long time.

Last year we engaged Adam Hobill to design our new house . From the very first meeting with Adam , he made the whole process very easy and enjoyable for us. His friendly manner, professional advice , knowledge and insights into the build design was apparent from the very first meeting. Adam responded to our brief particularly well given our unusual requests. Adam's responsiveness to issues we raised with him was very prompt and his advice sound and practical. We can't wait to move into our new house soon!

After building our first home almost 25 years ago, we decided it was time to do it again. Adam was referred to us prior to having selected and acquired our block and was prepared to invest his time and advice as we considered a variety of options. His recommendations on design and siting considerations, particularly around significant trees and heritage considerations was invaluable. This made our decision to engage him once we found a block to be an easy one. Adam spent time getting to know us, getting to know how we wanted to live in the home and took the time to ensure that the home was practical, stylish and comfortable. While Adam made a number of valuable recommendations which we adopted, and helped us understand when our ambitions and the block constraints competed, the end result delivered 99% of the outcomes we were looking for and the final result exceeded our expectations.

Adam Hobill designed our house and we couldn't be any happier with his design, his level of professionalism, and his communication. Adam definitely listens to his clients; his design perfectly met our brief, and he has been willing to listen to us throughout the design process, changing his design as needed, and providing advice when appropriate. In an industry where you have to fight for attention and service, Adam has been a standout. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

We engaged Adam to help us design/ draw up plans for a large extension of our home in Yarralumla. He was fantastic. From the initial meeting Adam was knowledgeable and able to really listen to what we hoped to achieve with the project. We were pleased with the designs he came up with and very happy with the drawings, etc he provided. Adam is a very approachable, yet professional person to deal with/ relate to which is very important to us as there certainly are people in this industry who are not enjoyable to work with or who are not good with their paperwork, or explaining where extra costs will be incurred with the job etc. But Adam was one of the 'good apples' and he was just so happy to be of help. Nothing was too much trouble. We would very happily recommend him to others. His building quote system is fantastic too as it enables you to get a very clear indication of the project costs. He also took at interest in the development of the project and even came out to see us to see the result which we thought was great. We really love the design he created for us and love even more our beautiful home now that it is finished.

At our first consultation, Adam's amenable and attentive manner gave us the confidence that in collaboration, he was the right person to help create our dream home. We were flexible and open to his ideas while keeping our fundamental list of non-negotiable elements in mind. He embraced our brief and from the first set of drawings, had transformed the concepts into a creative reality, whilst fulfilling the complex planning restrictions for new suburbs. Adam and his team were passionate and keenly interested in the project to its completion, always willing to change details and give advice beyond the scope of works. It was well worth the money engaging a Building Designer/Architect, his experience and knowledge was invaluable, the process was stress free and the final outcome is tremendous.

Worked with pro
We worked with Adam Hobill on the design of a significant extension to our home, which included the addition of a second level and the modernisation of the street-facing facade. Adam was a pleasure to work with and provided us with a design that met our needs while adding interest to the home. He pushed us towards new ideas in a few areas, which we benefitted from. He also helped us select a builder and then worked with them in a collaborative manner throughout the build, helping keep the right balance between cost and outcome. Overall we are extremely happy with the end result. As an added benefit the extension won the ACT HIA Award for renovations $200-350k and also the overall Renovation/Addition of the Year award in 2012! We highly recommend Adam Hobill Design. Pictures of the end result are detailed on the builder's website at: http://griffinconstructions.com.au/portfolio/red-hill-carnegie-crescent/

Commented: Lovely roomHi, the floor is a floor topping product by Ardex, http://www.ardexaustralia.com/products/floor-levelling/ardex-k-15-microtec. I think we used K80 given its suitability for heated floors.

Commented: What's the most annoying home building/design jargon?Yep, "wow factor"! Good design shouldn't need wow factor. Needing to add wow factor if often a result of a poor design solution (and sometimes a sign of a client wanting to show).
