Benedict Design
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"Ben helped produced photo montage images for my house and proposed driveway at Dellview Street, Tamarama. Not only is Ben a talented designer he is also very approachable and easy to work with. The quality of his work helped us visualise the floor plans and driveway landscape. I can not look at a floor plan now without wanting to see Ben's photo montage perspective to bring the plan to life."

Morgan Dickson Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"Matt came up with a concept that we would never have thought of. It was a tricky block of land that sloped and fell away and we required minimal steps to be negotiated each day. We have a home that suits our needs as an older couple perfectly yet can expand to accommodate the needs of our family and friends when they visit. He never gave up trying to give us exactly what we wanted. Matt has given us so many features in our home that we didn't realise until we lived in it! Thanks again."
- Donna Russell
Utz-Sanby Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"Duncan was always a pleasure to work with. His plans were very accurate and detailed which meant there was no need for guess work from the builders. Utz Sanby have a high level of knowledge and experience when it comes to building a house which is comfortable, works with the environment and that just makes sense. Our home at Whale Beach turned out exactly as planned, within budget and with no compromises. It elicits admiring looks and photographs from people walking past every day. CAD 3 D drawings and multiple designs and models were provided in the design phase which made our decisions very easy to understand. Duncan was always eager to listen to my suggestions and incorporate them into the design. I did not ever feel that he was pushing me into creating a trophy house for his portfolio but rather a home that suited our family in every way. I highly recommend Duncan and Utz Sanby to anyone considering building a new house."

Architecture Republic
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"Jess and Tristan are both extremely professional and a joy to work with. They came to our house to meet personally to discuss our needs and look at the property.They were extremely honest with their quote and were able to explain to us exactly what we would be able to do within our budget. Every step of the way they were friendly, helpful, and were able to keep our minds at rest by emailing us updates. After it was all over we were able to extend our loungeroom out and raise the ceiling. If we ever need help with an extension (or even a new house!) again we will definitely be giving them another call. Thanks guys!"

Michael Bell Architects Pty Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"MBA were engaged for the architectural services for the renovation and additions of a 110 year old house in Lindfield. The house was to be our family home for quite some years to come. Michael's interpretation and adaption of the existing design, from a very small roomed, 3 bedroom and 1 small living room period house into a fully functioning family home of today, was impeccable. His design managed to add quite a large addition to a very heritage sensitive building in such a way that my wife and I are continually stopped by people walking passed, commenting on what a marvelous job we have done. These comments are made without people knowing how well the layout functions. Michael listened to our requirements and suggestions and developed them to a standard above our expectations. We could not have done it without Michael and his team."

Dynamic Design Solutions
Architects and Building Designers in Wollongong
"Lalit was approachable and responsive. After a lot of discussion we proceeded with a straightforward, single-level extension which produced some wonderful spaces in our Californian bungalow. While there are a few tweaks we might have anticipated that would have further enhanced the design, we are really happy with the project Lalit designed and appreciate his support throughout the project. This was a major project and Lalit was able to provide design and cost advice that guided us to a very successful outcome."

How do I find the best 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 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 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 Wollongong 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 Wollongong 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 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?
