Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

what I offer

I offer a holistic and bespoke architectural design service tailored to your needs. I help you bring your ideas to paper. Or if you wish, I can help you with design suggestions to get the best outcome.
 In either case, I always work collaboratively with the client to make sure you are wholly satisfied with the end result. Most importantly, I guarantee transparency throughout the whole design process which will give you certainty and piece of mind.
 My area of expertise is in Alterations and Additions and designing new Homes. In the recent years, I have gained experience with properties in bushfire prone areas. I deal with projects located in the Shoalhaven and Eurobodalla Councils.
 To work most effiently I am servicing the areas south of Jervis Bay and north of Moruya on the NSW South Coast. These include, but are not limited to, Milton, Ulladulla, Mollymook and the Batemans Bay and region.
 If you have a plot of land without a house, I can help with the design. And in case you are looking to buy, I can provide my expertise of whether your renovation or building ambitions are feasible or whether the vacant block of land is suitable for your needs.
