Design

 

The design philosophy of Harmonic Architecture is centred around care. Caring for my clients, caring about the outcome, caring about the impact on our environment.

Architecture, when done well, most do appreciate, most can experience and feel. It is the special little moments, experiences, beautifully crafted junctions, details, how we move through and between the spaces we create, through the light and the dark.

My role is to make your home special for you, for you to enjoy, to love, to build those special moments. To make you feel like you have arrived at your own special piece of paradise. For you to love and enjoy the rest of your life. We have to do this, while treading lightly on the environment. Putting back more than we have taken, securing the future opportunities for others to follow.

Yes, it is harder, yes it can take longer, and yes it requires work from my clients.  But the rewards are well worth the effort. Together we create your home, together we can make the world a better place than we found it.

Sustainable / Healthy Design 

 

Tackling sustainability is not easy, I celebrate and encourage anyone who is committing to a more sustainable way of life. I have lived ‘off the grid’ for over 10 years and am currently completing my own new home. An opportunity to trial and embrace everything I know, not just theory, but in reality.

I want to live in a home that is beautiful, beautifully built, beautifully finished, with quality materials. Materials that are healthy, non-toxic and safe to use. It has been a very tough challenge, emotionally and physically. The rewards however, hard to put into words. But would I ever leave my new home, my special piece of paradise, where the environment has improved since we began.

Not on your life.
