“I first became involved with Vos Architecture + Design during mid-2015 when we were considering an alteration and extension for our 1930s Art Deco home in Caulfield North, VIC. I had spoken with a “short list” of five architects at that time about their vision for our home and John was the most passionate and...”
“Working with John was a positive experience from the very start. He understood our brief but at the same time he guided us through other options that maximised our project potential. We are now well settled in our new home and the whole family enjoys the spaces we have available to us.”
“My experience working with Vos Architecture + Design has been excellent. John is a true professional who brought design skill, attention to detail, and management skills to our project. He has thorough understanding of the process with local councils and getting things built.”
“We chose John (Vos Architecture) after interviewing a short list of other architects. John was realistic in what could be achieved on our inner city block and came up with an interesting functional design that met the prime requirements...”
“John has done a fantastic job of designing our 'dream' home. Great service and nice work, John. We are now on the stage of getting a building permit and getting quotations for contract issue.”
“If you're building a home to live in, we would highly recommend Vos Architecture. We considered other architects and had difficulties with the work they had provided. As our area is governed by restrictive laws, our dream home design was a constant 'back to the drawing board' with council's planning department...”
“John came recommended to us by a family member, as someone of skill and integrity. We provided him with a loose brief for the design of 2 townhouses in Keilor East, that they simply be modern, luxurious and cost effective...”
“John helped us and our friends design our home with great detail and care every step of the way. Very down to earth and highly and great at what he does. It was so refreshing to use an architect that that understands the interior design aspect as well as architecture for what we wanted and within budget! More than happy to recommend !!”
“One of the best Architects that I have worked with over the last 25 years or so. Attention to detail, good knowledge of the trade and brilliant detailed drawings. Would highly recommend John and his services. Definitely the Architect I would use for my own property. :)”
“Vos Architecture + Design is one of the best architectural practices we've had the pleasure of working with. As a builder there is nothing we like more than a project that has been properly thought out and documented. Their ability to work within their clients budget whilst maximising the design criteria is key to their success. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone for both commercial and residential projects.”
“John provided us great design concepts, material selections, professional contacts and advice throughout our design, planning approval, build process and beyond, and was always very responsive to our needs and project challenges! We were recommended John by a friend who completed a renovation on a home similar to ours, and have happily recommended John to our friends based on our experience.”
“I am a builder and I worked on one of John's projects last year and found him to be a pleasure to work with. His drawings are clear and concise, his attention to detail is fantastic but done in a manner that makes our job so much easier to build . He has great creative design ideas so makes the job of building that much more interesting and fun to be associated with. Communication with the owners and ourselves throughout the project was second to none. I would definitely recommend John for anyone who is looking for an architect.”
“I had the pleasure of working with John in the past at a large Architecture firm in South Yarra. Once I knew he had set up his own company, I recommended John to one of our clients that required a registered architect and John was the first person that came to mind. John has the creativity and experience to provide high-end design solutions for your residential project.”

For straightforward projects, a draftsperson or building designer may suffice, as they offer cost-effective solutions. Vos Architecture + Design recognises the value of tailored expertise, which ensures you pay only for the services essential to your project.
Architects, with university degrees and licensing credentials, bring a heightened level of skill and adhere to rigorous standards set by governing bodies. Architects are expected to continually elevate their knowledge and skills to meet and exceed these standards.
Opt for an architect if your project demands elevated design or a distinctive solution. Our team excels in delivering more than just drawings and permits; our comprehensive approach extends to project direction, budget management, and overarching project guidance.
Vos Architecture + Design recognises that each project and client is unique. Our fees are carefully tailored to the size, complexity, and cost of the undertaking. Following a detailed discussion with the client, we determine the necessary level and extent of services, leading to the calculation of a fixed fee. Additional fees may be charged if the brief changes or other work additional to the agreement is requested. We guarantee a clear understanding on what the expected costs could be right from the start.
At Vos Architecture + Design, we frequently draw on our rich past experience and industry benchmarks to guide budget considerations. For unique or complex projects, we often recommend involving a quantity surveyor or a reputable builder to contribute valuable insights throughout the process.
