What is Ask An Architect?

Ask An Architect is our signature platform of information, resources, education and tools specifically for those undertaking home renovations. When building this platform, our aim was to improve your renovation journey by sharing our hard-earned experience of what works, what doesn’t, and the milestones and considerations along the way. Hopefully this will save you time and stress, and allow you to put your energy into the areas that matter in your renovation.

Our support and advice comes from the professional and personal side. We are highly experienced architects, designers and habitual renovators ourselves, with a 20 year track record in the industry. We have also renovated (and flipped) several of our own houses while raising young families and building our business - we understand the pain points of a renovation and what it takes to get the most out of your home. We are obsessed with finding the best arrangements, the best processes, products and people to make your renovation a resounding success.

Can Ask An Architect help me?

Designing and building homes should be an exhilarating, exciting creative journey… but it can often be the opposite for first time renovators. There can be lots of inefficiency in building projects, especially with decision-making and supply / ordering of parts, and a project can quickly slip behind schedule and become stressful.

 

Our vision is to give you solid, professional advice from highly experienced experts which helps your project run smoothly and successfully. Renovating a home of any size is a lengthy, intensive undertaking and we would love you to enjoy the process and come out the other side with your dream home that works beautifully and supports you in your everyday life.

Source Book

As an architect I have spent the last twenty years designing family homes in Sydney and beyond for many wonderful clients.

 

Along the way I have gathered a tried, tested and recommended list of local suppliers, from timber merchants and tile manufacturers to window and door suppliers and furniture companies, and I am delighted to share these with you in this exclusive guide.

The AAA Source Book is your gateway to planning a home renovation the industry way. It contains a valuable source list of my favourite, high quality suppliers, with personal annotations and ‘best for’ notes based on my experience working with each company.
