Residential Architecture for the Adelaide Hills and Southern & Beach-side Suburbs

My business “Grant Lucas Architect” is based in Adelaide. Most of my Residential Architectural work is in the Adelaide Hills and the environs of Adelaide’s Southern and Beach-Side Suburbs. I also provide a remote Architectural service for Country towns and Rural areas. 
Passive Solar Design principals and sustainability are considerations in all my builds. Reducing your carbon footprint doesn’t mean that aesthetics are compromised. How a project looks is very important to me. What is also important is that it still looks good in 10 or 20 years time. Trends come and go, but good design is timeless.

If you are following the traditional route of engaging me to produce plans for Builders to Tender on, or if you want to act as an Owner Builder I understand what you want and can produce the Design and the Documents that will help you achieve a good outcome. You will find no ego here. Each job is tailored to suit the Site, Client-Brief and Budget. If I take your job on you can be assured that I will be the person dealing with it from start to finish. I will take your brief, come to site, measure up, arrange Consultants (including Engineers and Certifier) and prepare the documentation for Planning Approval and Development Approval (DA). At the end you will have a tight set of documents that you can shop around to Builders for the best price, or let out to Subbies (if you decide to Owner-Build).

Domestic Architectural Services include full or partial services available for fixed fees or at reasonably priced hourly rates. From concept design to Building Approval I provide as much or as little as my clients want. I cover a wide Architectural range of Residential fields including  (but not limited to) Site Inspections, Subdivisions, Heritage work, New Residences,  Residential Extensions & Renovations, Granny Flats, Garage Conversions, Cellars, Retrospective approvals, Swimming pools, Landscape and Garden Design.  My designs consider and utilize passive solar design, recycling and low embodied energy where possible.  I also provide a drafting service for Planning Approval and Development Approval documents as well as a re-documentation service for clients that have tried and failed to get approvals previously. I will work from clients sketches and produce 3D computer visualizations and shadow studies as part of the sketch design process
