My favourite real estate agent said “Your renovations are fabulous, I still think you have best designed kitchen“ I must say I agree with her. I do love my little place and my beautiful kitchen makes me happy every day”

Jenny Doust, Ashgrove

“Thank you. I didn’t really understand the drawings, but now the house is finished I can see that you took my ideas and suggestions and made them beautiful. Everything is perfect. Every morning I say to my husband, I love this house.”

Frank and Vilma de Silva

“I have been working with Jan on small and large projects for over 15 years. These ranged from small extensions to very complex projects, one which was awarded the Master Builders best renovation over 250 k and the quality and workmanship award. Working with Jan has always been a pleasure, and despite whatever difficulties a large renovation throws your way, Jan always displays the ability to work though it, providing the best result and a pleasurable working relationship. Jan’s designs are practical, efficient and work for the needs of the client. I can speak for this as Jan designed my home in Camp Hill.”

Stewart Harris (Builder)

“We spoke to several builders and architects over a number of years before finding Jan, who was the first to grasp what we really wanted.

We found the prospect of renovations far too daunting but Jan Thompson and Ryan Builders steered us through the whole process.

Jan's skill in blending old and new in our Edwardian Queenslander, and her ability to visualise the views and vistas in the new spaces were outstanding."

Charles Naylor (Owner)

"Jan Hogarth has the wonderful ability to listen and focus on the clients brief enabling her to present a creative design, making certain to have incorporated the clients requirements.

Good communication is at the essence of completing great projects. We feel that Jan’s communication with all parties involved in a projects is exceptional, :- sub contractors, engineers, the principle contractor and clients. 

Jan always presents herself professionally and deals with any situation calmly and promptly. My company has always enjoyed working on a great number of projects in which we have been jointly involved, several of which have been Award Winning Designs."

Tom Ryan - Building Contractor

"Of the several architects whom I have employed, working with Jan Hogarth has proved the most rewarding experience. She very ably handled all aspects of my sizeable build.

With creative and apposite design solutions for my requirements, good-humoured dealing with changes and a diligent attention to details, she managed this complicated project. Jan’s extensive list of contacts meant she was able to provide the full package from providing me with superb builders to finding the right garden designer. I also found it an enormous relief to deal with a budget conscious architect.

Having Jan Hogarth as my architect gave me great peace of mind and brought my project to a most successful conclusion.  

I unhesitatingly recommend her and would enjoy the opportunity to work with Jan again."

“We knew we only had one chance to get the look and the acoustics right and the room also needed to work if we ever sold the home. PlaceMate took into account not just the acoustics, but also the aesthetics of the room. We are delighted with their work.”

Greg & Trish Elgar

Jan, you did a fantastic job translating our unformed ideas into a classy home, fulfilling all our requirements. We are most impressed that you were able to design such a unique and spacious home on a small block and yet one that blends in with the ambience of the suburb without being ostentatious. Your choice of building materials was inspired and the design incorporating the high ceiling in the living/dining/kitchen area impresses everyone who sees it. We also appreciated your no-nonsense, straightforward, approach to the whole project. Congratulations on a great job 

Lola & Ian Binch

"Builders build, tradies trade, but the architect has the vision and
ideas. Thanks Jan for your wonderful suggestions."
