Client Appreciation

In Sydney alone, I’ve designed for over 100 residential and commercial clients. And I’m delighted to be able to present to you what those clients have had to say – about me, my work, and our time together.

If you need further proof of happy clients in happy homes, give me a bell, I’ve got plenty more testimonials on file.

Throughout the entire process, he listened to us and beautifully articulated our ideas in the final design

“We absolutely love our new house design. Andy has helped us communicate and realise our ideas in the design of our new house. Throughout the entire process, he listened to us and beautifully articulated our ideas in the final design. Andy’s approach to design has been instrumental for us achieving our brand new, light, open and contemporary house.

I can highly recommend Andy Oxnard’s service based on the service and insights offered and the beautiful design we have achieved.”

Andy is a great designer with great ideas

“Although a difficult task, Andy was able to come up with several designs for our new duplex that suited our challenging triangular block and our ideas. He was always prompt with his responses, and this meant our project was always meaningfully progressing.

The final design was quite unique and exceeded our expectations, so we are all very pleased with the outcome. As my wife said, “Well done Andy, our homes are awesome.” Andy is a great designer with great ideas, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring his services.” M Gurnett, Miranda

Readily available whenever we had questions

“Andy was great to deal with from the very first meeting. He encouraged us to go with a contemporary design that embraced the landscape and views, and optimised the summer breeze. His architectural design for our first-floor addition and substantial renovations really fitted into our house ideas. Andy was readily available whenever we had questions and he was always happy to accommodate our changes.” R + M Mood, Gymea Bay

Andy was invested in ensuring we had the best possible experience

“After making contact with several architects, we made the easy decision to engage Andy due to his prompt responses, easy going personality, and ability to offer great ideas early on. We therefore enlisted his services for a large rear extension plus a re-design of the existing front façade. Throughout the design process he listened to what we had in mind and offered advice that took our major renovation to the next level.

Andy was mindful of our initial brief to ensure that the end product delivered. He was always open to discussion and changes and always happy to discuss the pros and cons of ideas which made decision making easy. Andy was invested in ensuring we had the best possible experience and we were extremely happy with the final design, and with the entire process in general. We now have an amazing modern, light and airy home and we would not hesitate to recommend his services.”

His work ethic, attention and sense of humour made the process a very enjoyable one

“My wife and I purchased a small bungalow on a block of land we believed had the potential for a fantastic family home. We had numerous discussions with architects throughout the Sutherland Shire, but from our first discussion with Andy, we knew we had found someone who could satisfy our challenging brief and expectations.

We cannot thank Andy enough. His work ethic, attention and sense of humour made the process a very enjoyable one. I have already recommended Andy to family and friends and will happily continue to do so.” A Johnson, Jannali

He was an integral part of the building project and gave us considerable comfort throughout the build

“Andy’s work through the design and approval stages of our renovation was completed with patience and professionalism. He guided us through the building process and was always available for the builder, visiting the site when needed. He was an integral part of the building project and gave us considerable comfort throughout the build as he consulted with both ourselves and the builder.

We achieved our objective to complete satisfaction and visitors to the house have echoed our own thoughts – that we are living in a completely transformed and modern new house. We would recommend Andy Oxnard to anyone in need of architectural advice; in fact, we have done that already!” P Talbot, Bonnet Bay

A gifted and trustworthy designer with a creative and caring approach

“We needed someone who would be able to adapt our initial concepts and guide us through the various phases of a project such as ours. Andy was the perfect choice and we were confident that he could design an extension that would suit our modern tastes while complementing our existing cottage style house. He impressed us with his experience and knowledge of the building process and he was upfront with all the costs with a detailed breakdown of his fees.

Andy was always available to discuss any part of project and never delayed with his sketches and amendments. We now have a beautiful, modern extension that is ready to submit to council for DA approval. We recommend him very highly as a gifted and trustworthy designer with a creative and caring approach.”

The type of professional that you can trust implicitly to deliver on expectations

“Andy was presented with a challenge to design a modern house on a small, narrow and steeply sloping site. He listened, understood and came up with a design that reassured and excited us. He has exceptional design skills and his drawings are of the highest professional standards. He has excellent communication skills, sets proper timeframes and responds quickly, willing to make any changes while providing alternative suggestions.

The completed house cleverly makes use of every conceivable space and provides amazing light and ventilation. We have had nothing but praise from neighbours and friends with one saying “the house was a thousand times better than what they expected”.

Andy has a thorough understanding of the entire construction process and is the type of professional that you can trust implicitly to deliver on expectations. If you are looking to build a custom home, I strongly recommend you talk to Andy.” B Wong, Illawong

His attention to detail, willingness to answer any questions and the quality of his work are exceptional

“My wife and I have used Andy on two separate projects over the past year. Andy was available whenever we needed him both via email and on the phone which was extremely important for us. On both projects, the brief that we gave Andy was followed through 100% and the designs that we received back were perfect from the get go. The council approval phase was completely taken care of from start to finish. His attention to detail, willingness to answer any questions and the quality of his work are exceptional. I can’t recommend Andy highly enough.” G Evans, Kareela

Andy goes over and above for his clients

“As a female undertaking a pool and backyard design project, I strongly recommend Andy; a strong communicator who offers innovative suggestions and high-quality work in a timely manner. So refreshing! Andy respected that my budget was important and gave me helpful suggestions for my conversations with builders, landscapers and pool companies. I think Andy goes over and above for his clients, making sure they understand and are thoroughly content with the design.

Without hesitation, he would be my first choice for design services in the future.”

A Gray, Oyster Bay

At all times he had our best interest at heart

“We appointed Andy to design a new backyard terrace and swimming pool on a very challenging backyard site. It was clear he had the ability to view things differently, allowing consideration of new concepts. During the design, Andy was able to identify potential challenges in advance, providing opportunities to agree on the best direction forward.

He always made himself available to listen to our concerns and to offer advice on changes we wished to make. Sometimes his advice was simply to reassure us, sometimes it was to guide us, but at all times he had our best interest at heart.

Andy was also able to add value by providing details of other professionals (all of whom have provided outstanding service) and his pro-active approach/advice during the build has been very much appreciated. We will definitely recommend Andy Oxnard Design to others requiring an exceptional service.”

Andy is clearly passionate about design, and we believe that we have achieved a significantly better outcome

“After purchasing a challenging block, we began the search for someone who could design a functional family home that would draw on the unique features of the site, sit beautifully within its environment while still making a strong design statement. Andy instantly showed the same enthusiasm for the project that we felt ourselves and came up with an initial design that exceeded our expectations. He made constant refinements and improvements and communicated with us continuously, making sure that we understood and were happy with the direction of the design. He was patient with queries, responded to them quickly, and was more than happy to make time for face-to-face meetings or calls.

Andy assisted us in navigating the complex council requirements and was diligent in keeping up the momentum, liaising with the various experts to ensure the appropriate documentation was prepared on time. We were kept up to date with reminders of next steps and costs at all times, so there were no unpleasant surprises. His final plans were detailed and comprehensive, and the 3D modelling aided our understanding of the design, look and feel of the finished project. Andy is clearly passionate about design, and we believe that we have achieved a significantly better outcome for our property as a result of working with him.”

Professional yet friendly manner

“Andy designed our new family home on a tricky access, sloping site. After preparing a thorough feasibility assessment, the design was completely in line with our brief and the plans were produced quickly and to a high standard. He was very mindful of our strict budget in his design and build methodology.

He took the time to listen to our requests/queries and addressed each in a professional yet friendly manner. His preparation of the council documentation was great and his patience during the “costing” process was highly commendable. We really haven’t had to worry about a thing and Andy has been an asset to have on board. I would recommend him without hesitation.”

Working with Andy on this project was a great experience

“We had an old commercial building that’s facade needed a complete makeover to reflect our modern, progressive company. Working with Andy on this project was a great experience. His attention to detail, level of communication and overall competency with this project ensured the very best result. Thorough consultation and several site visits the end result truly reflected what we envisaged. I absolutely recommend Andy for any architectural design project.”

He set the expectations and always delivered on time

“To have someone like Andy involved in the early concept redesign of our corporate space was invaluable, his ability to take on our broad range of ideas, concepts and requirements then apply his architectural flair to provide an actual set of office layouts plans was sensational.

Andy was always prompt and professional, his communication was always clear and constant, he set the expectations and always deliveries on time. I would have no issues in recommending AOD for any upcoming projects or using him again. Thanks for your efforts Andy, all the best.”
