WHY CHOOSE US
Why are we the right architects for you?
To be honest, we might not be, but people choose us because we thrive on helping you get the best from considered design.
Architecture is about making life better, and we think that architecture and interiors, buildings and the spaces between them, can be made better. Our aim is to create a home that delights you, a great place to live with an atmosphere that feels right. Our clients are delighted with the houses we have designed for them.
- We provide bold solutions guided by both a careful understanding of our clients’ needs and aspirations, and a creative response to the possibilities of the project.
- We provide house designs with strong coherent spaces that are well-crafted, with beautiful qualities of daylight.
- We believe that value is not determined by budget alone, that each project, no matter how small, can be made special.
- We believe that sustainable design should be an integral part of our work and your future – we want to change your world and ours.
The transformation of our home is unbelievable. We both can honestly describe the end result as ‘gorgeous’. We would be proud to recommend Peter to any prospective client.
We want you to be an active participant in the renovation design process. We collaborate closely in order to discover what problems our clients have with their properties, what our clients believe, even what stories they tell themselves, but we won’t ask you to do the design work – that is our responsibility. It is your responsibility to be upfront about your budget and expectations and to give candid feedback.
We will work with you, as we have worked with clients ranging from: lawyers, academics, engineers, teachers, builders and property developers, real estate agents and travel agents, graphic designers and fashion designers, account managers and aged care managers, psychologists, nurses, car sellers and balloon sellers, local councils and state government bodies. See our portfolio of projects for how we have helped our clients, whether it was for the client’s family home or a development project.
Peter Hill helped me design my home in Balmain. Leichhardt Council had difficult requirements for us to meet. Peter was flexible and worked hard to align my expectations with that of Council. The end result is a lovely building that not only suits my requirements but also has lasting visual appeal. I am particularly happy with the street presence and general feeling of light and spaciousness from within the building.
The best way to start is with our Needs & Options Review. Often our clients need full architectural services, including design, documentation and project administration; other times they just want quick advice about a potential property purchase. We’re comfortable with both, and everything in between, but to be honest the built results are best when we are hired for full design services.
But besides the building, what is the emotional outcome that you want from your project? Minimise frustrations – engage a residential design professional to look after your interests in negotiations with council, consultants and builders. Rest assured that we will explain what we are doing, and why, at each step along the way.
Peter helped me select a nondescript house which with his skills and expertise had the potential to be light and bright and a great home to live in. Peter’s design fulfilled that vision and I now live in a home which also has a “wow” factor. Visitors regularly comment favourably on my home and the architectural features which Peter incorporated into the design.
we help our clients see possibilities in the built environment so that they can make the right decisions about their surroundings
Each house design is individual, a careful response to the needs of our clients and the requirements of their specific location. We have extensive experience in gaining development approvals in council areas throughout Sydney, including City of Sydney, Leichhardt, Marrickville, North Sydney, Mosman, Randwick, Burwood, Parramatta, Auburn, Hurstville, Sutherland, Ku-ring-gai and Bankstown, as well as further afield.
Peter demonstrated meticulous attention to detail and outstanding conceptual ability when constructing drawings for our proposed renovation. Peter ensured that the entire council approval process was speedy and stress-free. We would highly recommend Peter to prospective clients who are after an individualised detailed approach to designing their ideal home.
we listen closely – but we can’t give you answers unless we can explore your question
To begin to look into whether we might be right for each other, contact us and tell us a little about yourself and your project. If we think we can help, we’ll send you some helpful information and invite you to schedule a meeting during which we’ll give you some initial thoughts, and answer your questions.
