Tax time headache?
Let us crunch the numbers

Looking for an architect/designer who listens around Canberra

By bywongqueen 2 October 2011 23

We have been trying to make plans for a significant renovation to our property for a number of years but having difficulty getting our ideas and needs on paper. We would appreciate suggestions or recommendations from people who have been through this process.

We would like an architect or designer who has experience with solar passive, is interested in recycling and who can listen to our needs and ideas and present options that meet these needs. We would also like a professional who can outline a design process – series of meetings or something like that – so we can understand what we are doing and why.

I know this is an old stream but it is still proving to be useful for people search for architects in Canberra. So – I wanted to add that Jigsaw Housing is now known at Light House Architecture and Science. Due to business growth we now work with a small pool of trusted builders, rather than just one in-house builder. Our sole director is now building scientist, Jenny Edwards, and we still focus on simulating the home at each stage of design so that we can optimise windows/eaves/insulation to achieve the best ‘bang for buck’.
I’m the lead architect of our friendly, energetic design team and would say that our passion is working for good-hearted people who want well-considered homes filled with warmth, light, connection to the outdoors, and good social spaces.
(p.s. And unlike my lovable predecessor, I’m always on time! 😛 )

They don’t advertise much (I assume they don’t need to) but Ryall Design ( is definitely one worth looking into. My friend got her house reconfigured by them in order to make it more sustainable and she raves about them.

Having been involved in the environmentally-friendly products field in Canberra since 2002, we have worked with many sustainable architects in Canberra. A number have been practicing sustainable design for over 30 years- some of them are mentioned in these Comments. To help potential clients find these sustainable design professionals, we have added a page to our website at

We will be adding further listings. Any feedback from RiotACT members would be appreciated.
