APPROACH

 

Cameron Bosque Architects are a design-led practice with many years of experience with all kinds of building projects large or small.

DESIGN

Cameron Bosque Architects are Architects and Interior Designers and focus on the inside as much as the outside when designing buildings. For us architecture is about the whole user experience, the journey through the building, the use of the internal and external spaces and how the design makes you feel.  We ensure our buildings are coherently designed inside and out. 

 

"We want our designs to not only meet our client's aspirations, but to go beyond what any client originally imagined."

CLIENTS

It does not matter if you are an experienced developer or a homeowner who wants to undertake building work for the first time, as we tailor all our services to each individual client.  We will choose an architectural design package which meets your requirements and guide you through the process step-by-step.

​We aim to make the building process easy, by keeping in close contact with our clients throughout each stage so they always know what is going on and what will be coming next.  This is essential in making this a stress free process and to help keep the client happy.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability does not mean expensive add-ons, it is about the whole life-cycle of the building and how you use energy.  A well designed sustainable property will always save you money on energy bills.

We have the responsibility as architects to make our buildings as sustainable as possible by understanding how our homes work, the energy used to run them and the materials used to build them.  Sustainability and energy efficiency are important considerations for every design at Cameron Bosque Architects.

Stage 1 - Based on the project brief we will design various proposed options for the new building/s or extensions.

Stage 2 - Pre-Planning / Outline / Planning application (if required) submission to Local Council to gain permission to carry out the works.

WHY HIRE AN ARCHITECT?

10 Common Architect questions answered

1. What is the difference between an Architectural Designer, CAD Designer, Draughtsman and an Architect?

 

Anyone can say that they are an architectural designer, CAD Designer or a draughtsman as it is not an official title, therefore you have no knowledge that the person is qualified or has the required experience and skills to design your property.   The title "Architect" under The Architect´s Act 1997, can only be used by persons registered with the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB), which is an industry body protecting the interests of the public.  In order to register they must demonstrate that they have sufficient experience to design and deliver projects and this process takes a minimum of 7 years to complete.
