Profile

Design director Aaron Jones formed urbanfunction on his return from working abroad for 6 years in both Melbourne, Australia and London, UK.

With 20 years experience in the industry, Aaron draws on a range of global experience. From technical detailing and construction in stadium building to design, detailing and marketing of high end residential / commercial developments for both client and developer.

The importance of architecture and design within our built environment, I believe is everything. As space, light and visual context affect mood and function within ourselves and those around us, it is critical we live within well considered environments. Considered not only for the purpose of which a building or product is to function but also to it's own environment and surroundings. This forms part of the core philosophy as to how I approach design.

Client Reviews

We engaged Aaron to design our home after the success of a family members new house build the previous year also carried out by Aaron.

He not only fulfilled our brief with care and attention but delivered a home far beyond our expectations of quality integrated spaces. I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend to anyone considering high quality residential development.

Benjamin Bell

We cannot recommend Aaron and Urban Function highly enough. We engaged Aaron for his experience in the local hillside area. He understood our brief immediately and provided us with an architectural plan that met our needs. As we are overseas based he also made the process seamless and also took the time in visiting us overseas to understand what our design style was. He provided an amazing level of service from planning to even styling ideas at the end of the build when we could not be there. He treated the project like his own and went the extra mile for us. He and Urban Function have given us a home of our dreams, we still can’t believe how awesome the completed build is. Highly recommended and if we were to design another place he and Urban Function would be our first contact.
