We are client focused residential and renovation architects based in Canberra.

We want to help you achieve a comfortable, sustainable home that will delight you every day. 

No matter if it's a small improvement, doing a renovation, alterations and additions, adding a secondary residence or knocking down and rebuilding, we can help you! 

With over 15 years experience in residential architecture - and mainly in fiddly renovations and thermally efficient new builds in and around Canberra - Our architect Reine has a wealth of knowledge and experience to enable her to design highly functional, cost effective, energy efficient and beautiful homes.

Her husband Paul is our technical officer - a former civil and structural engineer, with a love of reading standards and legislation and a mastery of the 3D building modelling software we use - his technical expertise ensures your home comes together smoothly and accurately.

Throughout our clear and staged design process we will step you through key decisions and help you prioritise your brief against your budget, all while feeling informed but not overwhelmed in your decision making. 

We are based in Canberra and also work down the South Coast and into the Snowy Mountains. 

[Reiné] was tasked with the challenge of working within the existing foundation (no extension) of the original home with the view of added features such as a second bathroom, study nook and entry way to name a few all under a tight budget.

The home we have now is beyond what we hoped for in that it is very energy efficient.

Reiné's design choices were farsighted in that what we enjoy today and would not compromise on were not too clear at the time of the design process. Renee steered us away from bad design decisions and guided us throughout the design and build process.

She is professional in her service and is an approachable person. She listened to us and had our best interest at the forefront always.

In a nutshell, communication was honest and easy making the project smooth. If we were renovate or build another home, we would not hesitate to consult with Reiné again.
