Real Architectural Expertise
You wouldn’t take your car for a lawn-mower service, so why take your building plan to anyone other than a qualified architect?
At g2 architects we believe that our built environment impacts upon our quality of life, and our mental and physical wellbeing. If years of family or work life are to be invested into occupying a building, we believe that an investment of planning expertise is necessary to ensure that the building is the best it can be. At g2 architects you are assured that your project will be designed from conception to completion by a qualified architect.
The paint may fade as the years go by, but the design will always be fresh.
At g2 architects our designs respond to your site, your individual needs, and also incorporate architectural best practise. This helps ensure that your building will have the design integrity to stand the test of time.
Your building designed for you.
We consider one of our greatest accomplishments to be our return clientele. At g2 architects we work with you throughout the design process. We also offer flexible fee plans to accommodate your financial needs. Our aim is to use our experience and expertise to help you achieve your vision.
Commitment to Sustainability
Your built environment and your natural environment working together.
Sustainable design has many advantages be them environmental, ethical or economical. At g2 architects we will ensure that your design meets or betters Australian standards based on your client brief. Our belief is that a building should function with consideration to its environment, not independently of it.
State of the Art Technology
“Walk through” your house while it is still on the plans.
Imagine the ability to view your building virtually while it is still at the design stage- to walk from room to room, observe where sunlight falls in each living space as the seasons change, and even examine views through proposed windows. At g2 architects we offer 3D Virtualisation as part of our standard service. This means that you can perfect your building design prior to your build.
