“We met with a number of different architects before deciding to engage Alessandro Quadrelli to design our home. While we were impressed by his experience at Warren & Mahoney, Alessandro stood apart because he demonstrated a genuine willingness to listen to us as clients and work with us to interpret our brief. Early in concept development we developed a strong sense that we could forge a solid working relationship that would last through the next two and a half years of design and construction.
Throughout our design journey, Alessandro constantly challenged our thinking and pushed our design. The outcomes at every turn were better for it. The balance between the creative and the practical (that a lot of other architects overlook) was achieved – but not at unnecessary expense. His willingness to listen, to consider more cost-effective alternative solutions, and work to within our budget was reassuring. His design talent, his use of technology and his attention to detail was evident at every stage. The process was collaborative, responsive and respectful. The relationship, while always professional became personal and importantly was built on trust.
Alessandro Quadrelli delivered us an architectural statement that exceeded our expectations and did justice to our challenging site. He was able to visually articulate our thoughts and turned our brief into a home that is as functional as it is elegant.
We can honestly say that we have enjoyed working with Alessandro and would not hesitate to work with him again. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking architectural services.”

“From the moment we met Alessandro we knew he was passionate about designing our home, we loved his vision and creativity. We wanted a modern home and after detailed discussions, Alessandro provided us with a plan that exceeded our expectations and excited us for our upcoming build. He was knowledgeable, forward thinking and able to solve any problems that arose. Alessandro listened to our needs, was conscious of our budget and took responsibility for all aspects of the consent process. At all times Alessandro was approachable, professional and fun to work with. We enjoyed the entire design process and this was due to his superb communication, attention to detail and design flair. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Alessandro for any projects, we would definitely employ Alessandro to design our next house.”

“My association with Alessandro begun several years ago and I have continued to marvel at his extraordinary Architectural ability. As a builder and developer of 45 years, I am comfortable in saying that Alessandro’s work is unequalled by any other architect I have worked with, or for.It is the subtilties of clever design that stand an excellent Architect apart from a designer.For me, the most outstanding example of his ability is the proposed new ‘final home’ for my wife Liz and I. His interpretation of our design brief, far exceeded our expectations. Having recently been granted a building consent, we are looking forward to the award capable result in a few months.”
