Ross Mckinnon | State Development Corporation

“I am writing to thank you for your ongoing support of our firm. As you know we have been working together now since 2004 and we have enjoyed our relationship.

Our philosophy with our consultants has always been, once we find a team that we can work with, we stay with them in a continued partnership.

Your commercial experience in all facets of property has been invaluable to us. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for architectural services.”

Michelle Davies | Little & Co and Kindred Early Learning Centres

“We have worked with John Stubbs of 77 Architecture on a number of projects. John has constantly exceeded our expectations and been proactive in providing innovative designs.

We are in the final stages of construction of a boutique, high quality early learning centre and kindergarten and have been starting to show our educators through our new facility. They are delighted with the abundant natural light, air flow, aspect and unique design characteristics and the benefits that they expect they will bring to the children who attend our service.

As owners and operators of our service (whose own children will be attending), we are really dedicated to a wonderful facility for the children and we have been delighted to find in John a partner on that journey.

Having worked with other architects in the past, I can attest that John’s work ethic, desire to go above and beyond to service his clients and dedication to the projects is exceptional. With John and his wonderful colleague Ben, it is a partnership on the project throughout the design phase and also throughout construction.

John has truly been responsive and focussed on client outcomes.”

Brett Wilson | Stockland National Development Manager Town Centres

“I have been involved with numerous architects throughout my property development career and it is obvious to me that John is one of the rare breed architects that delivers consistently exceptional customer service, inspiring creativity, diligent documentation all wrapped up in a genuinely nice bloke.

He is always striving to better understand the clients’ key requirements and initiates design that is practical, from the sense of budget, but also smart with the tools or environment he has been provided with.”

“John Stubbs has my full endorsement as an outstanding architect.

We have been involved in a number of builds over the years and found John to be the most committed professional we have worked with. I had the pleasure of working with John on our build over a number of years and at all times his passion for achieving the quality outcome we desired remained his clear focus.

John is very organized, extremely intelligent and has an amazing eye for modern design. At each turn of the construction process he had an informed answer to our technical questions, which allowed the project to drive forward without delay. Access to this type of information is instrumental in the success of a project from my perspective.  John has the depth of knowledge and experience to lead a project from pre-construction planning thru to completion like very few others. John was incredibly responsive and provided us with timely answers and architectural details as issues came up on the project.

Brisbane does not suffer from a shortage of architects, and in a crowded field, only a small group of firms stand out in my opinion.  I consider 77 Architecture to be one of the very best. We would seek out John’s services on our next build”

Paul Barratt | Managing Director, Residential Projects Brisbane at CBRE Asia Pacific

“I have worked on a consultant team with John where John was the architect. John is highly responsive, articulate, and a genuine problem solver.

I look forward to the next opportunity to work collaboratively with John again on a new project and recommend John as a great lateral thinker.”

Tony Fendt | PCN Property Development Manager

“John has worked with me on a number of projects over the years … I recommend John for the reasons that I find him a most personable team player capable of delivering excellent work from concept to completion.

More importantly, John is a person of high integrity … he is reliable and consistent with his advice. Did I mention ‘trustworthy’ ? Trusting relationships in project teams build successful projects … we keep coming back.”

Sally McMillan | Home Owner

“John was our architect when we undertook a large Hampton-style renovation of our home, including a new kitchen, ensuite and downstairs inside and outside living areas. John was involved in the process from the start right up until the completion of building. John prepared the detailed drawings capturing all our ideas and making them a reality and was fantastic at understanding our vision and incorporating it into his drawings.

Our builders and their subcontractors were all very grateful for the detailed drawings prepared by John, making the building process much smoother as they knew exactly what was required. John was always available to assist with any queries that arose during the build to ensure they were resolved quickly and there were no delays. John also inspected the site to validate the work done before we paid any invoices.

John’s advice and experience was invaluable when choosing all fixtures, fittings, finishes, and through the multitude of decisions required in such a renovation. He was there to assist us right until the end helping with post-completion checks. He was easy to work with and instantly had the respect of all involved in the project.

We could not be happier with the end result of our renovation and we couldn’t have have achieved this without John. He made our dream home become a reality and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

“When we decided to build a granny flat for my mum, a friend did up some rough designs for us and then we thought what now!  77 Architecture stepped in and project managed the whole process for us.  From taking rough drawings to plans, finessing the lay out, providing all the options for finishes, coordinating all approvals and seeing us through to completion.

We now have a fantastic looking home in the back yard for my mum.  She has total privacy as do we, yet I can pop in every day and see how she is going, grab a few things at the supermarket for her or share a bottle of bubbly and not have to catch a taxi home.  We are nearly 12 months post the build and every time you enter the Marquis Cabin, you still think, wow this is beautiful.  All her friends are jealous!

We couldn’t be happier.  John is a fantastic person to work with and a it was a pleasure to collaborate with him on this project.”
