― What our clients say
“Respond Architects recently worked on the design of our new administration block. Lead architect Andrea Boon was invaluable in taking our brief and turning it into an amazing reality. I really appreciated her eye for detail and ability to 'hear' what our needs were and make it real. She supported us throughout the building process and we couldn’t be happier with the finished result.”
“Respond are quite simply the experts when it comes to remediation design. Because they’re on the weathertightness review panel they can peer review and sign off drawings and we’re good to go, and when structural work is involved they simply partner with the Prendos engineering team. It’s so easy.”
“Respond are totally connected to the needs of today’s schools. Their designs are clever, detailed and reflect our requirements of quality, open learning spaces. Most importantly they provide excellent, responsive service; we couldn’t be happier.”
“Respond’s designs for our home renovation really opened our eyes to how we could create better living spaces and flow. Their knowledge of council guidelines and restrictions was invaluable, and they made it so easy – managing the design process end-to-end and staying on top of how the build was going. Most importantly, they were genuinely passionate about our project.”
“Respond’s design ideas really make sense and their concepts often challenge our thinking around how we approach a project. They’re fantastic to work with; on the ball and completely transparent. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.”
"Performance is what cuts it for me, and Respond is absolutely exceptional at what they do. Their designers are some of the smartest in the industry, and their recent work on one of our boutique townhouse developments is outstanding – our clients are really impressed with the finished product."
