“ ...and the result is a house that is proving to be extremely pleasant to live in. It’s the 5th house I’ve lived in and easily the most comfortable.”
Having known Raewyn since about 1998 I decided on using her firm for a new house in Dunkirk Estate. I secured the site in February 2013 and met Raewyn on site for a quick visit to view the site. Having an idea on the scale of house I wanted and knowing only that I wanted: raw timber, glass, and off shutter concrete Raewyn was able to conceptualise and create sketch plans within 2 months for submission to the Dunkirk architectural committee. These were passed in the April, final municipal drawings were created with 4 weeks and these were submitted for approval in May 2013. They were accepted without comment and construction commenced in late July 2013. A 5 month time period from conception to commencement is impressive.
Evolution provided all working details and as construction happened during a very difficult time for Raewyn her team kept the process going smoothly. There were effectively no variations on site, every detail worked.
Construction was completed in May 2015 and the result is a house that is proving to be extremely pleasant to live in. It’s the 5th house I’ve lived in and easily the most comfortable. The scale and proportion work and added features such as sun control handle the environment and still maximise the view.
“Evolution Architects has my full endorsement as an outstanding architecture practice.”
uShaka Marine World has been involved with upgrade projects assisted by Raewyn and her staff who have been a pleasure to work with. I have been impressed with Raewyn’s attention to detail and passion for great design and architecture and no job is too small to handle. They balanced the architectural vision and the project realities beautifully, had a deep understanding of our priorities, and operated responsively and professionally to all matters, especially navigating through the difficult waters of plan approvals through the local municipality. Evolution Architects has my full endorsement as an outstanding architecture practice.

“Raewyn and her team have proved that they are always able to understand our needs and offer a solution.”
Evolution Architects have provided architectural services to our School for some 15 years during which time our requirements have increased in size and complexity. Raewyn and her team have proved that they are always able to understand our needs and offer a solution which complements our existing buildings whilst moving us away from the conservative buildings we tend to favour.
Evolution Architects have over the years become more than just a service provider to Chelsea Preparatory School. We have developed a relationship with all the staff who support and guide us through the often complex process of submission keeping us regularly informed of the progress made.
It is because of the warm, pleasant and professional relationship one is able to develop with the team at Evolution Architects that they are always our first port of call when embarking on a new project.
