When you hire an architect, you have a professional on your side who knows the construction industry inside out.

Interior Design, Kitchen, Laundry and Bathrooms
We wanted to renovate our kitchen (too small) and our living areas (too big). Alishia came recommended by a work colleague. She gave us three proposed layouts, one of which was exactly what we didn’t know we wanted. Her design moved the dining room into one of the redundant living rooms, and expanded the kitchen into the former dining area, giving us a butler’s pantry and much more cupboard space. Alishia also managed the project; her firmness with the builder about the quality of the workmanship was both necessary and appreciated. Thanks for our new kitchen, Alishia!Debbie Pickett and Tina Canton / Mount Waverley

“My wife and I live in Singapore, and taking on the task of designing and building a house on the Mornington peninsula was always going to be a challenging task given the distance and the fact that we wanted to be closely involved. Engaging Minett Studio has been a terrific decision as not only are we happy with the architecture, but Alishia has seamlessly managed all the interconnecting parts for us – engineers, planning authorities, builders and suppliers. Her skill lies in understanding what each player needs, and designing right solutions on the first attempt. We’re delighted with her expertise and service.”See projectBHP Billiton Marketing Executive / Singapore
