Melbourne’s Preeminent Residential Renovation Architects

There is potential in every building that is listed for sale. New owners are always excited to make sweeping changes and imprint their personal style and personality once they close the sale on an old, vacated or heritage building or apartment because they have seen the potential that is there to realise the kind of home that they want. Similarly, homeowners that have grown tired of what they have and want to freshen things up will recognise that change within their existing walls is a shortcut to a new home.

At BY Projects Architecture, we are the home renovation architect that a lot of people, just like you, turn to every year when they want to do something new and brilliant with their home. Our popularity stems from 30-years of experience in this business, delivering and exceeding expectations for our clients time and time again. We are Melbourne’s well-known renovation architects for our listening skills and dedication to achieving what our clients want first and foremost.

The push for smart, environmentally-friendly approaches to renovation and development has set us apart, given that we are passionate about sustainability in our work and can achieve carbon zero designs. We deliver on time and on budget, and our unique creative abilities afford you a team that has the talent to find effective, efficient solutions that deliver incredible results.

Key Considerations When Hiring an Architect for Your Home Renovation

As you browse your options among the residential renovation architects in Melbourne, it’s worth bearing a few things in mind that will be crucial to the success of your project. Here at BY Projects Architecture, our clients regularly comment on our ability to save them money and shepherd them through the entire process seamlessly. It’s never just about the design, it’s factoring in all the other elements that are necessary to realise it and then take it through to completion.

Make no mistake, renovating a building or apartment is a process that moves forward in a particular way. Planning for each stage is essential and understanding how best to focus your time and energy, as well as procure the kind of resources that will achieve a greener building all contribute to a much more fun and exciting experience, as opposed to one that is frustratingly stop-start.

Do you want to address each issue as you reach it, or do you want to plan in advance and take advantage of the relationships that your residential architect already has to keep things running smoothly? Over 30 years, we have created and sustained fantastic relationships with contractors, engineers and consultants across a diverse cross-section of industries, many of whom you will need to call upon. Our project management services take the pressure off you and ensure a straight-forward route to the finish you’ve been dreaming of.

Value is an important part of the renovation process and we know exactly when to spend and where savings can be made without sacrificing on the quality or aesthetic achieved. We’ve learned these shortcuts over time and we enjoy nothing more than enabling our clients to stretch their budget that little bit further.
