Welcome

Whether you need to renovate, build from scratch, or convert an interior space, we are here to help you discover the perfect design – a design distinctly based on you and your individuality.

Our specialty is creating unique environments that inspire the soul, encourage good health, and provide you and your community with purposeful design outcomes with minimal impact on the earth. We are a Melbourne based design studio.

What We Do

Our focus is on you.

There are plenty of architects who offer design services. What really sets Cathi Colla Architects apart is our singular focus on you. We recognise that everyone is different – so understanding you means understanding your needs.

The first step to a successful project is listening to you.

Every design is unique: it is based on a genuine understanding of you, your site, your project requirements, your time, and your financial drivers. We do not follow a design formula (although we do follow a strict process) to ensure we always deliver to our high standards.


OUR SERVICES INCLUDE

SITE APPRAISAL SERVICE

Do you need to understand the real issues and opportunities of your site? Not sure what challenges are waiting for you along the way?

This service can assist you in identifying and clarifying key aspects of site, permits and timing, and to establish a clear project direction.

EXPERT WITNESS

Do you require specialised knowledge in a tribunal hearing?

We are able to provide specialised knowledge, skills and experience on matters in relation to architecture and design, construction detailing and specifications, statutory planning and construction matters generally.

ENERGY ASSESSMENT

Freezing in winter and scorching in summer? Want to reduce your cost of living? Do you want to reduce your environmental footprint?

Our assessment of your building can provide insight on how to enhance your energy efficiency (and lower your power bill!)
