TT Architecture carried us through the entire house design process. They advised us on the optimal block to buy, navigated us through heritage and other planning guidelines, and designed our house around a beautiful protected oak tree. They listened carefully to our ideas (architecture lovers have a lot of ideas). Their design has delivered the balance we were looking for – respect for the Ainslie heritage context, but a fully modern and interesting house behind the facade. The house balances privacy with our desire for light and openness to the outside. They guided us through the technicalities of orientation maximisation and the use of cutting edge materials. Most importantly they helped us navigate the contracting process and the identification of an excellent builder. We completed the process while overseas and they were always available for updates by phone.
They have been a joy to work with – great patience and senses of humour. Tony and his team do more than design houses – they’re participants in the debate that shapes Canberra’s future architecture and planning. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
Cheers, Tim Huggins + Mona Balram
