John McAuley Architecture
We would not hesitate to recommend John’s services to anyone contemplating a renovation or new building project. We had done several renovation projects ourselves before however this was our first with an architect. Now that we realise how valuable an architect like John can be we would never do another project without him! John listened to what we wanted and created a plan that exactly suited our family and our lifestyle. What has impressed us most is the fantastic use of light and space, which has made all the difference to our comfort and enjoyment of our beautiful home. John was extremely helpful and attentive throughout all phases of the project ensuring we finished our project successfully with a great design that we will appreciate for many years.

We wanted a house for a family with four boys aged under ten, that suited us not only right now but into the future when the kids become teenagers and adults. When we first started we had no idea of the process and really needed someone to direct us. John, with four boys himself, helped us to understand early on that making the house work internally was the key. Once we looked at the design, the flow of the house and the rooms the kids were going to use it all made complete sense. Ultimately, we went for the most radical design option, which was not at all what we expected, and certainly not something we could have ever come up with ourselves. The design and construction experience was seamless. We feel that the reason we didn’t have any problems was because of John’s advice to engage a builder early in the process, and the level of documentation John produced meant that nothing was left to chance. We love our home, in terms of the spaces there is nothing that we would change and there are lots of aspects of our house we would have never predicted.

Initially our brief was to design and deliver a project that was a modern take on a farm house. Still in keeping with the surroundings but bring in modern architectural aspects to the build. John’s thoroughness during the design phase meant that the project was pretty well bedded down before construction started making the build rather easy. The final outcome is exceptional! Coming up the driveway you get glimpses of the different parts of the house and the corner window is one of my favorite spots. It is exactly what we wanted, we enjoy living here and it’s clearly evident it’s a house we want to spend a lot of time in.
