"We feel very fortunate to be working with Martin. We had previously engaged with two other architects on this project and found that we weren't being listened to, so it was a real blessing to then find someone who really listened, understood, and further enhanced our ideas. Martin is very collaborative, dedicated and knowledgeable of working with natural and earthen materials. He was very flexible with our sometimes crazy ideas, and helped shaped them into practical but elegant and exciting solutions. He has been great at helping managing our project, is very responsive, and will do what he says, in a timely manner. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great architect to help them realise their vision, and are happy to be contacted directly for feedback."Dana & Jon
"Our project was a long time in the genesis. We had put our heart and soul into it and Martin understood this. He worked at our pace and breathed life into the light earth house we wanted to build.
We appreciated his patience, responsiveness and the gentle way he guided our thinking. Knowledgeable on the latest earth building techniques, Martin provided us with practical, creative and affordable options that helped us tackle the project's design challenges and which were consistent with our vision.
Thanks Martin for helping us with our dream home!"Stephen and Steph Ellett
"We worked with Martin on the design and build of our straw bale home. From the outset we found him to be approachable and easy to work with. He brought good ideas to the design and made himself available night and day to speak to us. He also brought a passion for natural building and limitless enthusiasm for the task at hand. Martin helped us achieve a design which met most of our expectations (no one can meet all your expectations!). When it came time to build, Martin was, again, available whenever we needed him. We’re still building and he’s always on the end of the phone as required. We would be very happy to speak to any potential clients.”Barney Lee
