What our clients say
  • Our experience with Placemate Architects was outstanding. They did three
    things we appreciated, and nothing we didn’t.

    They focused on understanding our needs and what we wanted.

    They, Jan specifically, consistently generated creative design options to
    assist in the extraordinary number of decisions that need to be made from
    the very big to the very small.

    And they matched us with exactly the right builder, the excellent Harris

    Our decision to work with Placemate Architects meant we got what we wanted,
    on time and on budget.

    Stephen and Lynne Day New
  • Renovating our home with the assistance of Placement and their relationship with Phil Maher Builder was essentially a stress free adventure.

    PlaceMate worked with us to achieve our dream home. Our home was modernised without losing the charm of a post war cottage.

    Our house has become a functional, open & light filled home. Which is now the central family meeting place.

    We even discovered that Architects, Engineers and Builders DO get on and work well together.

    Even though our budget was small, through the architectural skills and listening skills, PlaceMate turned our needs into the home we wanted.

    Beth & John Owners
  • Builders build, tradies trade, but the architect has the vision and ideas. Thanks Jan for your wonderful suggestions.

    Stephen Stone Owner
  • 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
