Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
Warwick O'Brien Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
"Warwick O'Brien Architects have been fantastic so far with my house plans. They have promptly drawn up great plans for a sustainable build, successfully lobbied difficult Council planners to get my requirements met, and promptly redrafted plans to accommodate changes (even waiving fees on one occasion because of unreasonable Council demands). I can highly recommend them. Sue"

Nicholas P Ingerson Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
"Although only part-way through the project, we are finding that his knowledge of the industry, energy efficiency concepts, and problem solving skills are exceptional. His ability to remember the finer details of the project puts us at ease as we head into the build phase our home renovation. I think that engaging him will not only ensure that we get what we want from the build, but also enhance the finished product with deign input beyond what we would have been able to conceive on our own."

Michael Fogarty Building Design
Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
"We were very happy with the design that Michael provided. He has a particularly good knowledge of how to use existing space and we were thrilled with his ideas of how to incorporate several existing rooms into the new design. The sketches and documentation that Michael provided were very detailed and of high quality. His attention to detail was noticed by a number of builders who used the drawings to create their quotes. Michael made the early stages of our renovation process easy, by explaining each step clearly and in terms that were easy for us to understand. The costs for each stage were explained thoroughly, so that we knew which fees needed to be paid and when. He answered our endless questions with patience as well as a high level of expertise, which made us realise we had made an excellent choice. The job ended up being successful for us, because Michael listened to our responses and suggested minor changes along the way. This resulted in a refined set of drawings and we were able to choose a builder to suit our needs and within our budget. Michael’s prices are reasonable, and not as high as several designers that we considered. He put in a lot of effort to make sure we were happy with everything, and continued to check on progress as we moved forward with our selections through the builder. We would recommend Michael to anyone who needs expert design work from start to finish."

Brett Aylen Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
"Brett is a breath of fresh air... He is a wonderful and wise person, who I found to be mindful, emotionally aware, and an excellent listener. His business has previously designed my office space that all visitors commented on favourably, and I look forward to the day that Brett designs and project manages our dream (climate responsive) house right at the beach. You will find that Brett is working with you and for you, every step along the way."

Atelier Bond
Architects and Building Designers in Adelaide, SA, AU
"It is a pleasure to be able to recommend Greg Bond of Atelier Bond to provide architectural design services. We worked closely with Greg to design our family home and recently moved in! The brief was to design an upgrade and extension to an early 1900s villa preserving the character of the original home at the same time linking it to a modern open plan extension to meet the needs of a young family. Greg was thorough in his ground work to understand our needs and wants and provided innovative suggestions to maximise space and light and minimise cost. Greg provided advice regarding the Council approval process and when we faced difficulties with Council approval (due to poor handling of the application by Council) Greg provided fantastic support to get the approval for the design we wanted. Greg was flexible, patient and responsive and, importantly, upfront and transparent in relation to fees. Greg's attention to detail and commitment to ensuring we ended up with a high quality home that meets our needs was evident from day one and continued even beyond the scope of his formal engagement as he kept a close eye on our builder! We are absolutely loving our "new" home and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Atelier Bond."

How do I find the best Adelaide architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire South Australia subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Adelaide residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Adelaide, SA, AU provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Adelaide, SA, AU are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Adelaide interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
