Some of our clients have been kind enough to provide a short testimonial.  Here are just a few.

"My wife and I would like to thank you for transforming our 1970's house, into a spacious, modern home, and all within our budget. 

With only a small addition to the footprint, your design unscrambled our house creating larger, brighter rooms and a more cohesive and seamless layout. The new entrance hall is a 3 story space carved into the house, providing the access to all areas and unifying the home. Whilst our house retains some of its original charm, it is now more spacious and contemporary, in every way the Australian seaside home we wanted! 

Throughout the entire process, from design, to approvals and construction, we felt very confident that we had someone to look after our interests, and to educate us through the process. There were times when we could have made some bad decisions, but you were able to point us in the right direction. Your commitment ensured our needs and vision were met and indeed exceeded in many instances.


My only regret? That we didn't take more photos of the original home, so others can have a better idea of the transformation. Once again Emile, thank you for a great job.


Mark, Avalon, NSW


"We are very pleased with the re-design of our home by Emile Jansen. The verandah is our favourite addition. It is original and also functional which is so important in a family home. We love the look of our house from the street now and get many comments from friends and locals. Our home is also very practical and works well both for everyday use for our kids and pets along with entertaining. Thanks Emile"

Without our architect (Emile Jansen) to lend the guiding force, the building process may have become much more harrowing with the multitude of decisions we had to make.   We are thrilled with the house – it has changed our lives.


John & Celia, Newport NSW


I just thought I should let you know how much Mark and I appreciate all your amazing input, patience and flexibility. You are an amazing team that we would THOROUGHLY recommend to anyone.  I just love how this whole process is coming together- we feel like we have chosen the best Architectural team imaginable.



We are extremely happy with the renovation of our Clareville Beach home, completed by Jansen Architecture. We wanted the essential 'beach house' character to be retained, while giving us a more substantial home and maximising unused space on the first floor, without changing the footprint.


Jansen created a stunning upper studio annex, with covered deck to maximise extensive Pittwater North West/Westerly views, replacing a small 'teenagers retreat', and now connected to the ground floor by an open internal staircase. Walls of windows, many louvered to catch breezes from all directions, have created a beautiful indoor/outdoor room accommodating bedroom and lounge. The theme flows to the large bathroom again designed with multiple louvres looking into the private gardens and across the pool to Pittwater.

An open galley kitchen with breakfast bar and the re-designed downstairs bedrooms create a wonderful impression of space. In addition, Jansen's outside colour schemes blend beautifully with the natural bush environment. More than a renovation, we now have a totally new house.
