Profile

Dwelling Architectural Design began in 2012 with a desire to be more involved with clients in the whole design process, from conceptual stage all the way through to contract administration, ensuring that what was designed is what gets built.

My philosophies are as follows:-

+ Design & Sustainability - Design needs to be tailored for the site, be individual, and relevant to the client. It needs to be scaled correctly, minimising wastage. Materials should be selected with consciousness of their origin and availability.

+ Thoroughness - In design and documentation. This allows the client to be certain about what they are getting and provides clarity for the contractor in pricing.

+ Teamwork - During contract administration, I believe in working together towards a common goal. The client, contractor, designer and consultants are on the same team, together working out solutions for the benefit of the client.

+ Enjoyment - Creating and building is to be enjoyed by all parties, from the client to the sub-contractor.

Client Reviews

Cam has been involved in remodelling most of our house over the past few years. We think he is a great designer because:

1.) His designs are stylish, functional and interesting

2.) He incorporates our design wishes in a way that provides what we would like without compromising the overall look and functionality of the project

3.) He doesn't tempt you with features that are obviously outside of your project budget

4.) Provides the whole package: as well as the design work, he is excellent at project management, liaising with contractors, and dealing with the technical aspects of obtaining resource and building consents

5.) We value his commitment to sustainable design and principle of designing dwellings with low running costs

6.) He has a relaxed persona and great problem solving skills, while still having a 'do it now' attitude and getting the job done on time

We highly recommend Cam
