If your after a quick responsive and very professional architect with great knowledge and design ideas look no further. What Weian has achieved with our up down house in Albert park was something special
Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars10July,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.
Andrew Child Architecture
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars17October,2014
Andrew Child designed and supervised the builder during construction of our new home. We had never used an architect before but were reassured with Andrew's sound advice and guidance throughout the whole process. We were impressed with Andrew's creative ideas and cleverly integrated them into the design of our lovely new home. The building of our house also went smoothly. It was obvious that Andrew had a good relationship with the builder and tradesmen on site. Any issues that arose were quickly resolved. We now live in a way we could never have imagined when we think back to the empty block of land we had in the beginning. Our house is full of calm, sunny spaces that integrate well with the outside. Living here is a delight.
Architest Pty Ltd
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars6December,2015
The best way to start a build is with Architest! Architects, graphic designers, builder contacts (optional) but the best thing is seeing your Reno/new build before you even dig a hole. You get to walk through your house and work out spaces, if the window would look better over there etc. The people at Architest are so easy to work with and full of fantastic ideas. Highly recommended if it's your first Reno/new build of your 10th!
Kube Constructions

Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars16February,2022
The guys at Kube were a breeze to work with, very professional and organised, even while working through the height of COVID lockdowns. Always a high level of quality and attention to detail. Their support at handover was also first class, felt a lot of love and appreciation. We are extremely happy with the final product, the design and functionality works brilliantly. We highly recommend them to anyone interested in a high quality renovation.
Urban Creative Studio
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars24April,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.
Hindley & Co
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars9May,2016
We engaged Anne from Hindley and Co about 9months prior to commencing a large scale renovation of our mid-century home down in Geelong. We were exceptionally happy with her ideas, service, and attention to detail. At the end of this process we now have an incredible family home, which feels modern and 'architectually designed' but importantly still has a very strong mid-century feel true to our design brief. We had never renovated before felt and were somewhat overwhelmed at the outset. We initially met Anne and her colleague Nicole on-site to develop a design brief, and through further meetings in their office came to a design we loved. This was then thoroughly cost planned so we knew where we stood. She took care of all the permits and gave us multiple options/quotes for providers to do the BAL rating, geotech assessment, surveying etc (including a local quote each time as our place is an hour from melbourne). Once all the drawings were done and plans ready, Anne and Nicole then managed a competitive tender to find a local builder we were extremely happy. I feel this process saved us money in the long run. Things then got underway pretty quickly! Being naive to this process we decided to take up the 'full service' and have Anne administer the building contract. Truth be told the 1st 3-4months of the build were pretty much stress free for my wife and I as Anne and our builder liased directly - just involving us when necessary. The whole build took 10months. Every room was renovated and the floor plan received a significant overhaul. Anne was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Her fees were in-line with industry standards to my knowledge, and I feel we've got what we paid for. Anne also helped my wife choose a number of our key pieces of furniture and was able to access trade rates for a modest commission. So - Its all done now. We couldn't be happier... Time to have Anne and Nicole around for dinner and a few bottles of champagne!
Jane Cameron Architects
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars23May,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
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars25March,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!
Chadwick Architects
Architectural Design Services in Collingwood, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars6April,2019
We have engaged Chadwick Architects on a number of occasions to help and guide us through concept development and the town planning process. Our projects with Chadwick Architects have involved renovations and extensions to our family homes. Chadwick Architects understood our brief, was keen to workshop different options and provided a number of concepts through the design process. They cleared articulated and explained the design rationale, optimising the design within the constraints of the site. On multiple projects, Chadwick Architects delivered a tailored architectural design package consistent with our brief. Throughout the process, Chadwick Architects were professional, added considerable value and were efficient with designs and plan amendments. Chadwick Architects were wonderful to work with, creative and their product exceeded our expectations. The quality and detail of the proposed plans made them easy to interpret and for us to see their vision. We will certainly consider Chadwick Architects again for a future project, and would highly recommend them to anyone
