    core strength's

    Innovative designs

    constantly experimenting with shapes, textures & colours.

    Excellent construction knowledge

    Enables Fernando's designs to be built without structural changes, which can negativley affect or complicate the design and add unnecessary cost.

    Building products understanding

    up to date product launches, attend building and design expos etc...provides appropriate application of products, saving on future maintenance costs.


    Fernando is adsorbed by architecture and this is the key to getting the most out of your designer and in turn the project.

    Accuracy & Info in the plans

    Design takes time and the plans should never leave a builder or tradesperson to do any guesswork. Plans must be accurate and descriptive or they can blow out the budget and result in undesired outcomes. Builders rarely need Fernando on site due to level of information & accuracy in his plans. In some instances new homes have been completed with Fernando only conducting a final inspection for the client. This strength alone more than pays for the fees that an experienced designer brings to your project.

  • Fernando Trajcevski

    The Principal Designer

    Fernando Trajcevski was born in France, his family migrated to Erskineville in Sydney's Inner West where he began education at Erskineville Primary. Moving to Newtown in the mid seventies he attended St Josephs Primary Newtown followed by higher schooling at Christian Brothers in Lewisham. During his schooling years he naturally excelled in maths, arts, crafts & technical drawings which formed an early indication of his future career. Post high school he furthered education in Architectural studies via the Associate Diploma, which covered Residential, Commercial, Industrial Design and Construction.
