What we do at Architecture Republic
New Home & Extensions
We love Australian architecture. Our big focus is new homes and renovations to existing houses. We also work on secondary residences, and multi-units. Outside of residential, we love small retail and school projects.
Green design is both affordable and beneficial for everyone. We use solar passive design and new technologies to make homes energy efficient. Our green techniques work together to create sustainable, low-carbon designs.
We can help you choose your builder and act as your agent on site in dealings with all contractors. We can organise tendering, progress payments and ensure the contract is being fulfilled. Our team will also help resolve any issues during construction.
Interior Design & Detailing
Functional, beautiful and tailored to your budget. We design interiors to bring artistic visions to life. Our service includes lighting plans, fixtures and fittings, colours, cabinetry, inclusions and detailing.

Bachelor of Architecture (UNSW) Bachelor of Arts (UNSW) Reg’d Arch: 9651 (NSW) + 2525 (ACT)
I love bringing ideas to life. My passion is guiding that initial thought through to the finished home. Since establishing the practice in 2011, I’ve had the privilege of working with a diverse bunch of clients and projects. We’ve done everything from straw bale houses to underground homes. I’m passionate about sustainable design. It’s something everyone can (and should) achieve.
Bachelor of Architecture (UNSW) Bachelor of Arts (UNSW)
I’ve always had a passion for making beautiful things. Since starting Architecture Republic in 2011, I’ve brought that passion to architecture. I was lucky enough to study under Pritzker Prize-winning architect Glenn Murcutt. This furthered my interest in sustainable Australian architecture. I’m passionate about preserving our built heritage and the history that goes with it. Whether you’re looking to rescue a heritage property or create a new masterpiece, I am here to bring your vision to life.
Bachelor of Arts (Hons – ENU), Advanced Diploma of Building Design (CIT)
I joined the Architecture Republic team in 2016. These days, I manage our Canberra office. I’m a Scottish building designer with a fine-arts background. My great passion is for heritage homes, inviting spaces and reading nooks. I love sustainable design and making the best of existing homes. Especially Canberra’s ample stock of ex-government houses (ex-govvies).
Master of Architecture (FEFU Vladivostok)
I have experience in housing, urban, recreational and commercial design. Working in Russia, Israel, Australia and the US, I am an expert with extreme climates. From arctic to desert, I have the versatility to create designs that cater to any environment. My approach is to look at each design from different angles to find the best solution. I’m a fan of simple and honest design with open spaces and minimalist materials.
Master of Architecture (UNS, Serbia)
My experience in designing and construction is global and varied. From bespoke homes to modular designs and from urban design to owner-building. My knowledge of construction inspires my practical approach to design. I’m passionate about natural materials, passive solar design, and healthy buildings. Currently, I am building a strawbale home of my own, from the first design sketch to the final nail.
Master of Architecture (UNS, Serbia)
I’m passionate about natural, healthy architecture. My great passion is natural materials: strawbales, rammed earth, and timber. I’m fascinated by intelligent solutions. Anything from small, smart homes to passive solar technology. Architecture can shape people’s lives for the better and I bring this belief into everything I do.
Bachelor of Engineering (NTU”KhPI”, Ukraine)
I’ve worked as a drafter and 3D artist for over 6 years, joining the Architecture Republic team in 2021. Immediately, I was swept up in the team’s passion for creating beautiful buildings. I love modelling and believe that the future belongs to the 3D world. It’s amazing to be a part of creating beautiful houses from a blank slate. For me, it’s a magical feeling!
I was born to be fabulous in all areas of admin. I’m Architecture Republic’s official paperwork magician. My role is to free the designers to spend their time on design. Instead, I’m the one wrangling Council or ACTPLA. I’ve worked in the design and construction industry since 2016. I know my builders, planners, certifiers, approvals, and the acronyms that go with them.
