Process

Director | B.Arch, B.A (Architecture), ARBV Registered

Tim Milton founded Milton Architecture to provide an approachable, professional and collaborative service for his clients. He combines stunning contemporary interior and exterior design with an expert knowledge of the building process. He finds inspirations for his designs in contrasting textures and materials combined with a playful use of basic geometry.

Tim has provided contemporary architectural and interior design solutions for a wide range of properties, from residential homes through to commercial, retail and retirement living projects. He is an ARBV (Architects Registration Board of Victoria) registered architect with extensive local and international experience.

He harbours nostalgic ambitions to go back to country Victoria where he grew up and build a house in the middle of nowhere that looks as if it elegantly sprang from the landscape. The open space would give Tim the chance to experiment with his signature style of contrasting materials on a grand scale, inspired by the surrounding environment.

 
 

our process

Designing and building your own home is an exhilarating and rewarding process. It’s one that begins with the idea of your dream house and ends with you walking through the front door of your new home.

Milton Architecture will guide you through the process with practical advice and beautiful design solutions. Our focus is to understand the aesthetic and functional needs of the client to create an exceptional home that combine effortlessly with your lifestyle. Our distinctive contemporary style is known for its classic proportion and playful use of textures. We enjoy design that challenges perceptions of space to create unexpected and delightful results. We believe that the best architecture comes from an understanding and respect for the surrounding environment.

Starting with your ideas and refining them with our own style, we nurture your project from sketch to construction. Our collaborative working process and knowledge of the construction industry, means we have the perfect skill-set to help you make the right decisions for a perfect home.

01: Meet Up

Working together, we’ll build the picture of where you would like to live, work and play.

Our aim is to work to your brief, applying our expertise to produce a pragmatic and realistic design concept that works to your budget and time constraints.

We’ll discuss your desired lifestyle in detail and listen carefully as you describe how you will eat, sleep, entertain and relax in your space.

By taking the time to listen to your needs we will understand your specific requirements. Using these insights we draw on our experience and vision to see beyond the building to a space that maximises efficiency and pleasure, a place that will delight every time you step inside.

02: Dig In

Taking the uncertainty out of the building process is a valuable part of what we do.

The next part of our job is to coordinate the practicalities of the process. We’ll be there every step of the way to facilitate the following:

  • The documentation of the project including planning drawings and technical drawings for pricing, building permit and construction purposes
  • The process of applying for and securing planning and building permits
  • Interior design services that include the selection of materials and finishes to complement your stunning design
  • Navigating the tendering process for bringing the right construction team on board
  • Being the intermediary between you and the builders to ensure the building is constructed in accordance with the construction drawings and specifications

We take the doubt out of a potentially daunting process. Our job is to keep an aerial view over the project, meaning that any potential pitfalls or problems will be averted during this phase of the project.

03: Come Home

We have created a space that is uniquely your own, a place that is perfectly designed for how you want to live, work and play.

The builders have gone, the final lick of paint has dried and all the paperwork has been submitted.  Your vision has been realised – welcome to your new home. The building that began as a collection of ideas is now a reality far exceeding your expectations, created from your imagination and elevated by the Milton Architecture expertise.  Now all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the benefits of living in your exceptional home.
