We invite you to discover what our clients and colleagues have experienced from working with us:


“We asked Davis Architects to design our new home after researching local Byron Bay architects. Ed listened to our brief and expanded the design with foresight and imagination as well as our criteria to do this as quickly as possible so we could build and be enjoying our home within a reasonable timeframe. The process through council was less than a month with Ed’s knowledge of the expected guidelines. Our builder Olivier Chaussemiche and his team executed Ed’s plans with expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm. Our year of building has been a wonderfully happy and enjoyable experience, we absolutely love our home.... Thank you so much Davis Architects!” Virginia Davies & David Hosking


“After talking with the Architect's Institute of Australia we engaged Davis Architects who guided us from ‘initial concept’ all the way through to ‘construction and completion’. We were living in Sydney for the majority of the design, development and approval process so it was good to know that Davis Architects were managing local issues with Council and other authorities. This local knowledge teamed with their use of the latest technology allowed us to communicate easily with all parties and share documents and drawings easily. The house is striking and showcases many unique details but retains a sense of timeless form and function. Thank you Ed and the team at Davis Architects.” Glen & Deb Christopherson


"We have used Davis Architects three times and in our minds Ed Davis is the best architect you'll find. Ed takes time to understand your vision, drawing out what's important to you in terms of form, function, light and air flow. We love his aesthetic, use of materials and creativity. Our home is now full of amazing details that reveal themselves as you enter the various spaces. Our visitors are in awe and we have such pride in what we've created with Ed. We'd be happy to elaborate further if you are considering Davis Architects for your next renovation or build". Katrina Lindsay and Alex Gould.

“Ed has designed two houses for me so far and helped in many other small projects. He is a very intuitive architect and has an amazing sense of what his clients are after. His designs are light, spacious, contemporary and create a space with an amazing energy and feel. One of Ed's projects for me was a major renovation (just the front wall and two original rooms left) of a lovely old Queenslander. The result was exceptional, retaining all the charm and history of the old building whist making it a light filled, ultra modern and superbly livable space. I cannot recommend Ed highly enough. Tony & Deb Simmons



“Edward has been the architect for both of our home renovations- firstly a complete re-modelling of a weatherboard terrace in Alexandria, and now a four bedroom original homestead in Berry. Despite having a few architects in our family mix we went back because his work is fabulous. He is happy to push when it's needed and give when the client is hell bent on expressing their taste. He accommodated our requests for environmental features and desire to trial new building materials. Edward has a keen aesthetic that runs through all of his work, but a great willingness to listen to his clients and help them express their lives and taste through their home. I couldn't speak more highly of him. Stay tuned for another update when we get through property #3!”. Kate Dezarnaulds



"Ed understood what we wanted. He listened to what was important to us, including our budget & worked hard to achieve our goals. He succeeded in transforming a wish list into a beautiful house.

The spaces work brilliantly. The orientation, light & natural ventilation work perfectly in all seasons. Ed looked after every design element for us, including interior design with great results. His attention to detail resulted in a renovation that not only looks good but works on a practical level day to day. We also appreciated Ed's responsiveness & willingness to resolve issues (however small) as they arose during the planning and building process. Ed always took the time to listen to us & communicated very effectively throughout. He was always on site when needed. We have since recommended Ed to friends undertaking renovations & would engage him again ourselves should the need arise." Eve + Richard



“Through simple and elegant design, Davis Architects has created a home that flows seamlessly through a series of interconnected indoor spaces which transition to outdoor entertaining areas. The design maximises available space and captures natural light. A range of sustainable materials that vary in texture, composition and colour create warmth and an ‘earthiness’ adding another element of interest to the overall design.” Georgina Dixon


"I am a Residential Builder and have worked with Davis Architects for over 10 years. Throughout that time I have found Ed to be a great architect with undoubtedly the best understanding of design and spatial awareness. His professionalism, thorough and meticulous approach to detailing and construction of buildings along with his approachable nature make him one of the leading architects in the industry. When an understanding is reached between the builder and the architect on what the final product will look and feel like, the client benefits greatly." Joe Proud, J2 Building


"Ed guided us through the process, keeping in mind the big picture and the detail. He was consistently able to provide design solutions in areas we were unsure about. The Council process in Byron Bay can be challenging. The quoting process proved to be less than straight forward. Ed handled both professionally and his experience in project management and as a licensed builder was evident. Ed has been able to balance the conflicting requirements of client, council, site and budget, with his practical, confident manner, and clear thinking. This process was enjoyable, and I recommend Davis Architects to my friends." Peter & Angela Chaseling


“We wanted an apartment which maximised the surrounding views and to improve upon the existing rooms to let more light into the space. Edward provided an excellent job of a minimal living and bathroom space and a compact kitchen which seamlessly blended into the living room. Altogether an efficient service which gave us the house we wanted.” Peter & Annette

“Davis Architects are a pleasure to work with. Their service is always professional as well as friendly and understanding, listening to clients needs throughout the entire consultation process and beyond. We work alongside Davis Architects with helping them with all their tiles, stone and surface needs. I would highly recommend Davis Architects.” Surface Society


"Ed delivered the exact space our growing family needed - not only structurally but with the perfect aesthetic. Our new space has changed the mood of everyone in the house. We no longer feel boxed in and it’s made everyone feel more relaxed." Sally Vardy




“Ed is a very accomplished architect, good listener and attentive to details. I found the home that I built for mutual clients to have a very comfortable flow, modern and warm at the same time. The home is perfectly adapted to its location on the edge of a national park, with a good use of elegant materials the home will age beautifully. Olivier Chaussemiche, Builder

“Ed and his friendly team designed a new studio, and assisted me with all aspects of the Development Application, engineering plans, and site survey. I found Edward and his staff always helpful, cheerful and highly professional. I am very happy with the final design. The plans have been approved by Council without modification. Very happy to recommend Davis Architects! Sol Ibrahim

“We are now living in and enjoying every aspect of our new beach-side house. We were attracted to Davis Architects creative concepts. Ed heard and respected our brief and collaborated very efficiently with our builder and his team. As we are overseas residents we had to totally trust and rely on our architect and the build team. The 12 month project ( from concept to completion), was a total pleasure. Now to enjoy our Golden House!
