" Jake was the architect who designed our wonderful new house and helped guide us through the process.

We are absolutely thrilled with the design of our house, the balance achieved by Jake between functionality and form is amazing. 

We really valued Jake's calmness, knowledge and willingness to find the best solution. "

" Jake designed the architecture and interior of our amazing new home. He listened to all of our needs and wants, and designed a stunning but warm and practical home. 

Jake was always a pleasure to work with. He provided options and solutions for challenges that arose and he helped  instill confidence in the decisions we made. 

Without him the design and build may have been more stressful and less organised.  

It was a real pleasure to work with him.

" Jake grasped my style and requirements and came up with a cohesive artistic composition for every room and space in the house. I was more than pleased.

He then helped me  source and select materials and finishes to complete my vision.  He is friendly, professional and courteous and has been only a phone call away throughout the process.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jake to others wanting a well-designed,

beautifully finished home."

“I have known Jake in a professional capacity for a number of years, and over that time we have collaborated on a variety of residential design projects.

He is a truly talented designer with a great sense of site context, and his work is high quality, thorough and detailed.

His professional approach to his work delivers great results; it is always a pleasure to work alongside Jake in the creation of beautiful home environments that his clients love.”

Kate Monk

Senior Landscape Architect, Enki Design

"Everything in our design was very considered to our brief and it was great to have Jake involved throughout the build process  to ensure the built form didn’t stray from the original design intent.

Moving into our new home just felt natural, like this was where we belonged. It has brought us a great deal of happiness,  calmness and balance to all our lives.

We receive incredible feedback on our house on a very regular basis, from people wishing to have their sports cars photographed in the driveway, to people who stop and make comment about how visually stunning it looks.

This is a testament to the design produced by our architect."
