Do you have a dream for your House?

All home owners have dreams for what their house could be! These dreams could be big, such as subdividing the property and building two new houses, or small, such as building a new deck or carport. No matter how big or small your dreams, we can help.

Don’t know where to start?

We know how daunting a new development project can be. You have so many ideas in your head of what you want to do but you don’t know where or how to start. “Where do we start” is one of the most common questions we get from our clients. The process confuses them and they don’t know whether they need to talk with Council first or if they should engage an architect first… The trouble is that every project is different and there is no process that fits every development. That is where we come in…

After a chat with one of our planners you will be put at ease and the process suddenly seems so much less scary as what you thought. After a quick initial consultation you will know if your dreams can become a reality and the process involved to get you there.

“Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.”
