With over 16 years of experience, Anna Antoniades is a specialist in high-end homes, with a particular focus on design clarity and excellence. Through a close partnership with her clients, she prides herself on facilitating an enjoyable, organised and positive experience, from sketch design to occupation.

Constraints, such as budget or site, often bring unexpected joys. The innovative use of materials exemplifies the necessary celebration of fine detailing. Care, rather than money, is spent on small details, where the restrained use of luxury materials keeps the costs down.

Contrary to most rationalist architecture, the result of her work is not dry, nor lacking warmth; rather, she creates spaces that appeal to the sensitivities of the inhabitant.

Simplicity and legibility are key design principles in Anna’s work, whilst still creating interest through the use of natural materials, detailing, light and the relationship between spaces. She is motivated by her passion for the elements of architecture, the process of building and providing environments that enhance the lives of her clients.

'Having seen the stunning, upmarket residential works that Anna completed in her previous role at BSA, I became her first client when she opened her own practice in 2009. In summary, Anna exceeded expectations in all areas of my project. I have previously built 3 houses and worked with different architects, so I am in a good position to assess Anna's professionalism and capability from a client point of view. Anna quickly understood her brief and delivered a very clear view of what could be achieved on the site. All areas were perfectly sized and located, to capture the maximum warmth, airflow and light into the house.

In my opinion, Anna's greatest strength is how she brings the entire palette of the house together, with seamless and logical interplays between all the finishes. In this regard, I'd advise any future client to allow Anna to implement her vision of how the whole of the house comes together, rather than focus too strongly on individual components.

Apart from her design flair, Anna was totally reliable, documents promised were always timeous, meetings were always punctual and Anna was always passionate and communicative. My particular project, which looked like it would take 18 months at the outset, ended up running for 3 years, through Council and builder complications, but at no stage did Anna give anything less than her full attention to my job. I am confident this would apply to all of Anna's jobs irrespective of size.

It is my privilege to live in an Anna Antoniades designed house.'

'When I think of the name Anna Antoniades, the words style, sophistication and professionalism come straight to mind.

In building our first home, we never expected that we could afford the skills of an architect of the calibre of Anna.Anna had the 'can do' attitude which let us dream of what our place could look like and coupled it with the practical skills necessary to price our project so that we didn't get our hearts broken by not being able to complete the incredible vision that she had drawn.

We love the fact that Anna's original pitch was broken up into stages so that we could reduce the risk of an issue down the track should we have not been able to afford the product we desired. Anna is a team player. She was happy to fit in with the contractors we wanted to use as well as the ones she arranged. She was also a great ear at the end of the phone when things go wrong which inevitably always occur during a building project.

We would certainly recommend Anna as she brought to life our dream home.'
