What our Clients say about us

  • Adam from Brisbane Airport

    Evan has extensive project design experience in government, private & commercial sectors and were been very impressed by Evans flexibility, responsiveness to requests for design changes during the drafting process and his level of communication throughout. The completed plans have been delivered on time & we are very pleased with the results. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Focus Architecture and commend them to you.

  • Jennifer & Michael at Indooroopilly

    We would not have achieved this outcome for our "once in a lifetime" major renovation without the professional creative design, oversight and quality assurance services we received from Evan at Focus Architecture. We found Evan's advice throughout the renovation projects invaluable, particularly as it was an existing house with many non-standard features. The outcome that was achieved exceeded our expectations as the house was transformed to be a very functional and comfortable home.

  • Jon & Nadia from Paddington

    I was looking for an architect with a lot of experience working on large renovation in inner-city Brisbane. Evan had worked on more projects than the others I checked and had a broader range of styles in his repertoire. His referees all mentioned that he is easy to get along with, cost conscious on behalf of his clients, very knowledgeable and reasonably priced. Having engaged Evan for my project, I can confirm that all this is the case. I would not hesitate in recommending Evan to anyone who require the service of an Architect.

  • Scott from Riverhills

    My wife and I used the architecture services of Evan Pickering in 2010. Evan produced a number of plans for us, in both 2D and 3D, all of which were high quality designs that really helped us to make informed decisions about our large-scale renovation project. Evan was an excellent listener, a thoughtful and creative collaborator, and was responsive to our needs and suggestions. He was very helpful and very professional in all his dealings with us, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Common Questions

What do you specialise in?
We are an experienced Architectural Consultancy that provides a custom design service in single houses and medium-density residential projects. Our experience also includes Childcare Centres, Kindergartens, Office Fitouts, Light Industrial Buildings, and Shop Fitouts.
How do we start the process?
Arrange a meeting so I can explain it in detail and find out your specific requirements and work out how best to address them.
How much does it cost?
It depends on what you require and I can answer that once we have met and agreed on a scope of work.
How long does it take?
It depends on a lot of factors but a typical timeframe for the Design Stage is 1 month, Documentation is 3 months, and Project Construction is from 4-10 months.
Can you assist with obtaining Building Approvals and Quotes from Builders?
Yes, we work with a selected panel of experienced and professional Engineers, Certifiers and Builders so we can assist with the whole process.
How soon can I obtain quotes from Builders?
The quote will only be as reliable and useful as the amount of documentation and information that is provided to the Builder so we recommend involving a selected Builder in early on in the process and progressing the documentation to a point where they can provide an accurate and reliable quote.
