Jane Cameron Architects
Building Design Services in Fitzroy, 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.

Andrew Child Architecture

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.

Hindley & Co
Building Design Services in Fitzroy, 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!

We used Rob and Kate to design an extension for our house, to include a bathroom, study, bedroom and living area. Their design is lovely - stylish, creative and practical. They were both extremely responsive and spent many hours making sure they understood our needs and providing both design and interiors advice. The whole process was as seamless as it can be when dealing with builders and suppliers, and they went above and beyond in order to make sure everything went to plan, and was finished on time and to specs. It was obvious they really care about their work.

I have photographed a couple of projects by RMR Architects and have found Renuka to be a thoughtful architect who not only addresses the need of her clients but provides them with a house design that is elegant and very liveable.
tessellate architecture and design

Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars17May,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.
Rebecca Naughtin Architect

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.
Centrum Architects
Building Design Services in Fitzroy, Victoria
Average rating: 5 out of 5 stars1November,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
