Hansford Residences, Qld

I recently visited a project in Coombabah, on the Gold Coast, where I was involved with the re-design of the facades. I had a tour of the site and managed to take some photos during construction. I might have to re-visit once its all done. http://hansfordresidences.com.au/

Miami Brewery Project

Recently, I revisited a project I worked on about 12 months ago. What was once an empty warehouse, has been transformed into a taphouse and brewery. I am pleased to say, not only is the venue fun and relaxed, the beer was pretty awesome! The Lost Palms Brewing Co. is located at 11 Oak Ave, Miami, Queensland.

Architecture Quote of the Day

Architecture is not about building the impossible, which we can do if we have enough money and enough tools and enough computers. It is about building what is appropriate and about attaining beauty through such an approach. I describe this premise as 'inherent buildability', and I believe it is central to what I do. http://www.azquotes.com/author/17296-Moshe_Safdie

There are always limitations on design. Planning controls, site size, shape and slope, and building budget all impact on design. While it would be wonderful to be able to design without restrictions, architecture is all about being able to work within these limitations and still design something beautiful.

Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space… On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure. Zaha Hadid

Working with an Architect

From concept design through to completion, working with an registered architect can be a very rewarding experience.

Invest in your architect

Architects can add value to your home through their design expertise and experience. While Architect’s fees are often more than Building Designers and Draftspeople because we are never simply ‘drafting a set of plans’. Architects spend a significant amount of time working with your brief and refining the finer details of your design. We invest a lot love and pride into your project to find the best design solutions.

Hiring an Architect. Registered or unregistered?

Would you trust the construction of your home to an unlicensed builder? I’m hoping the answer is NO. After graduation, architects need to go through an extensive examination process to become registered. Engaging a registered architect will give you the reassurance you have invested in the best design professional for your project.

Provide a detailed brief

The more information you provide to you architect the better the design will be to suit your individual requirements.
