What our clients say about paterson designs

  Andrew was recommended to us by a local builder who had worked with him in the past. As we'd never renovated before we had a number of questions and Andrew was more than happy to sit with us and guide us through the process. The plans Andrew designed were just what we were after and the collaboration process to get to the end result was easy and painless. Andrew knows exactly what's needed to check all the boxes and create a beautiful space. We were thrilled when our plans were approved without any questioning from local council. Thanks Andrew for all your hard work!

Mal & Jill - Randwick

" We used Andrew to lodge a DA application with Waverley Council for a first floor addition in North Bondi. Andrew met us on site within a few days, had a draft design to me within the week and had lodged to Council within 2 weeks. Our DA was approved in 7 weeks (which is very fast for Waverley Council!). Throughout the process Andrew was easily accessible, flexible to changes and queries that I threw his way, and ultimately achieved a wonderful result for us".

Sasha - North Bondi


“We had the pleasure of recently working with Andrew when we embarked on 2 DA’s for 2 neighbouring semi-detached properties in Maroubra. After sending numerous emails to local designers, we were most impressed that Andrew was not only the first one to call us back, he actively engaged in the discussion of what we needed and arranged a site visit within the week. When on site he was super professional, knowledgeable with Randwick Council, giving advice and suggestions about how best we should proceed. Throughout the design process, Andrew was client focused, arranging meetings and taking calls to get everything “just right”. And the result – the two DA’s passed through council. I cannot recommend Andrew enough, thank you".

Sam & Peter - Maroubra

"Andrew is a fantastic building designer who helped us plan our 5 bedroom 3 bathroom duplex. From our very first interaction, Andrew listened closely to what our needs were and delivered them without a problem. No amendment was ever an issue and his recommendations helped us decrease costs without compromising the build. He guided us down the design path to make this a smooth process for us. We have already recommended Andrew to a few friends and would use him again without hesitation! Thank you Andrew for designing our family home".

Caroline & Matthew - Riverwood

"Andrew was highly knowledgeable and professional in his work. He gave me some great advice and was always helpful. I recommend him based on this as well as his ability to get work done very quickly." 

 Maria, Rosebury  

"Paterson Designs are incredible. I have consistently used Andrew's services since I first booked him in late 2012 and have subsequently used his services for about 4 or 5 jobs since. He is a genuine professional who I highly recommend and have no problem introducing to my clients on a regular basis. Spectacular stuff!" 

Neal, Kensington  

I strongly recommend using Paterson Designs for any residential development work. Andrew is attentive, focused, knowledgeable and practical. Woollahra Council can be quite particular and protective of the area and only allow developments which are sympathetic to the environment and Andrew was able to hit this on the head. He was available throughout the whole 6 month process and nothing was ever too much trouble or too hard. Andrew excelled on this project and went beyond the call of duty in helping us achieve our desired development approval.  Thanks Andrew for all your hard work and I look forward to working with you again in the future. 

 Noel, Paddington  

 "Andrew assisted me to clearly understand the council approvals (or lack thereof) required for my home improvement project. He was prompt, professional and honest which I very much appreciated. I will definitely be in contact with him for any future plans." 

Marijke, Randwick  

"Andrew was prompt, friendly and a pleasure to deal with." 

Nathan, Maroubra  

 "Andrew from Paterson Designs came out of the blue and If it wasn't for him there is no chance that my home would look as beautiful as it does now. Andrew was truly amazing he helped us design our entire home, taking us through the journey in a highly professional manner and explained every small detail and option that we came across. Most people when building their home have serious issues with council and meeting their requirements, we did not have one single issue because he took care of that entire side of things on his own, presenting to us everything that needed to be done to ensure there would be no problems, he knew absolutely everything. Andrew was always making himself available to any queries we had, coming over to discuss the smallest of things in order to ensure that we understood every detail. It's very safe to say that he went well beyond his call of duty and this is a guy I had never spoken to prior to the job, I was truly amazed with how much effort he put into my job. All in all I would highly recommend Andrew from Paterson Designs, he is 100% the best tradesman I've come across and would want nothing less than the best recommendation for him." 

Talya, Bondi  

    "I would highly recommend Andrew Paterson to anyone wanting their job done. Besides knowing my council well, Andrew gave me invaluable insight on what potential buyers would want in a house, should I wish to sell it in the future. His proposal was so logical and would add value to my property. Also, I'm into Feng Shui and Andrew respects my beliefs. Thank you very much Andrew for your kind understanding."
