“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.
“Edward Davis has been the architect for both of our home renovations. Despite having a few architects in our family mix we went back to Edward 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”. 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
