Talina and her dedicated and passionate team embrace the scientific, rational and practical side of architecture and construction, as well as the more creative and intuitive approach to design. The practice employs a holistic and collaborative approach which ensures the best outcome for our clients in the designs of their projects.
When seeking an architect, Talina advises it is essential that you find an experienced professional that you feel comfortable with, who really listens to you, and that shares your values. The right architect will really get to understand who you are and how you live, and not only what you want for your future home, but also why you want it. A successful project starts with a trusting and collaborative client/architect relationship.
