What we do?
We are a team of architects in Adelaide dedicated to achieving optimal outcomes for our clients and the environment. Warwick O'Brien Architects works to protect the environment and the global population through sustainable architecture, offering a vast array of architectural services encompassing new, alteration and addition projects.
The journey is broken up into four stages and it includes submission to Local Council for Planning and Building Approvals and any attendant work necessary to achieve approvals.
The beginning point can be as early as assisting clients in selecting land and developing a brief for the home. Next design concepts and documents for the builder are developed in concert with the client. Once a builder ahs been selected, superintending the construction of the building is undertaken to protect the client’s interests, and finally, post occupancy evaluation can be undertaken where appropriate.
We engage, on behalf of our clients, all of the necessary consultants that are required to complete the project such as engineers and surveyors etc.
Before planning documents are submitted clients are guided through a computer generated model that creates a three dimensional representation of the project so that clients can fully appreciate the spaces that will become their home.
Over a number of years we have developed a strong working relationship with one particular builder, which guarantees construction of a high standard that meets all of the criteria, demanded of sustainable building. Should clients prefer to call tenders for the project this can be accommodated as well.
With over 40 years of experience in the industry, Warwick's key focus is the design of new dwellings and additions and alteration to existing dwellings that respond optimally to climate.
Graduated abroad, Renata believes that taking the environment into consideration is the present and future of Architecture and that a sustainable building can positively change one's life in every aspect.
