Rebecca Naughtin Architect
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Melbourne
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 10, 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.
Ardent Architects Pty Ltd
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Melbourne
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 22, 2015
Justin and the team at Ardent Architects have been absolutely fabulous to work with. They could understand the vision we had in our head and translate it to paper without our ability to articulate it properly. They gave us exactly what we wanted and more, the result far exceeded our expectations and we WILL be using them in the future. Ongoing site visits meant that during construction they were able to tweek our finishes and enhance the ambiance of the final product! They were always available to do resolve build-ability queries and talk us though new materials and finishes we had not considered. Our house looks stunning and we are constantly receiving compliments on the design. We have been asked so many times who the Architect is that we put a sign on the fence. The team at Ardent Architects were able to all of our rather large wish list in the extensive renovation and importantly they have added immense value to the finished product. The wall of glazing and the void are a few of my favorite features and the volumes of the rooms have created just the look and feel we were hoping to achieve.
Urban Creative Studio

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 24, 2018
I engaged Andrew and Urban Creative after meeting with four architect firms. I chose Urban Creative as Andrew soon demonstrated his knowledge, flexibility and ability to design the property we desired on a site with a number of constraints and within a tight budget. Urban Creative provided all planning and architecture services from a feasibility study through to construction supervision. The planning process was very smooth and Andrew managed subcontractors (geotechnical, structural, traffic consultants etc.) to maximise efficiencies and ensure the desired outcome. I would highly recommend Andrew and Urban Creative.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 17, 2021
Creative and Amazing! Peter & Seline from Arki Design Studio worked with us to develop plans to build our dream home. We had explored options and ideas for years on our own, and were excited when Arki Design came to us with a solution, the whole family loved. Peter’s knowledge, passion for design and creative energy, was exactly what we were looking for. The final product is above and beyond our expectations! Not only were they responsive through the process but also provided construction supervision and finalised all our Interior design requirements, to full completion. We look forward to working with your team again, in the future.

Andrew Child Architecture
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Melbourne
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 17, 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.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 5, 2020
It was a pleasure working with Gaurav and his team to create an articulate and thoughtful vision that far exceeded our expectations. They were very accommodating in experimenting with the design we were after. Their efficient response to every email and calls has made it very easy to accomplish our vision. Over the course of my career, I have had the pleasure of working with many creative and thoughtful architects. R Architects has definitely distinguished themselves through their mix of creativity, logic, and very good customer service.
Jane Cameron Architects
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Melbourne
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 23, 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.
