Sydney Residential Architect

Green Square Design

Below are testimonials from some of our clients. Over the years we have worked with and built up great working relationships with our clients. The relationship we foster has lead to many and many more referrals to family, friends and colleagues.

After many years of “thinking” about doing an extension we finally took the plunge and engaged Paul as our architect after he was recommended to us by a work colleague.

We had well and truly outgrown our tiny 3 bedroom post war cottage and sitting down with Paul, he created an extension that gave us a light, bright and airy living and dining space, a spacious and modern open plan kitchen and a concealed study space for the kids to do their homework.  He remodeled the existing living space as a second lounge, extended our bathroom and provided a much needed 2nd bathroom and internal laundry.

Paul gave us exactly what we wanted without trying to push his ideas on to us. He always had time for us whether it was meetings at his office, meetings at our home or the many phone calls we made during the approval and building stages.  He took our amateurish plans, made the necessary changes and with a beautiful use of windows and a combination of raked and suspended ceiling gave a real “WOW” factor to our new living space. He also incorporated a beautiful fireplace that we just love (and so do all our friends).

Paul’s design exceeded our expectations and his warm and personable nature made him very easy to deal with.  We love our new home……..thank you Paul !

"After meeting with several architects and designers, we found many simply wanted to design a house they believe we needed, and often dismissed what we actually wanted and what was on our priority list for our family home. Paul was the first person that listened, had our budget in mind and translated our requirements into reality. His professional manner and approachable style meant that we built an excellent working relationship. This ensured we could work together to make changes and ultimately we had the design and house we wanted, with the features that were important to our family and lifestyle. Paul also has a broad range of skills which we leveraged continuously throughout our project. He has provided both advise and on-site visits to assist us in our owner/builder construction. His building product knowledge gave us an array of options for the finishing's"

Since we engaged Paul Lam to design our extension he was always professional and willing to explore any ideas we presented. He was instrumental in guiding us to a design that is practical and most economical to construct. Also very patient, as we had many meetings and various concepts drawn before we settled on our final project.

Furthermore, Paul has always been prompt with his communication, and has given us valuable advice during the process of design through to council approval. Plus, provided many referrals for all the various components needed such as engineers and certifiers.
We would highly recommend Paul Lam for your project.

Best regards
Dean and Sonia Stevanovski

“We found Paul through a friend and then checked his website for Green Square Design and we were very fortunate to have met a friendly, genuine and hardworking person.  Nothing was a problem and Paul’s ideas certainly amazed us.  It was a stress-free process as Paul looked after everything.  We would certainly recommend him to all our family and friends.  Thank you Paul it was great to work with you.”

We had developed a basic concept for the layout of our domestic extension project and went searching for an Architect to solve design issues around integration to the site and handle the DA. Paul provided us with the finished drawings for the project and also provided advice and assistance, navigating the complex stages of applying to Council. Paul was timely with responses and remained easy to contact throughout the process.
Paul's design solutions and technical advice were invaluable and resulted in a project that we are very happy with. I would recommend Green Square Design to anyone planning a domestic construction.

From the moment we met Paul, we were impressed with his knowledge, approachability and professionalism. He made a special effort to understand our brief, such that we were "on the same page" from the outset. Paul was particularly efficient with communication between us and the relevant council bodies. The whole process from design conception through to signing the builder's contract and gaining our construction certificate, was incredibly smooth.
Thanks Paul, from

Paul has been instrumental and helpful with not only the unique home design that we wanted but the many facets involved along the way during construction. We found Paul to have many idea's and ways to reduce the cost of construction and provide us with trade contacts that have really helped us. As a first time builder its fantastic to have paul closeby. We will be using him again on our next project.

I'm an owner builder and Paul Lam from Green Square Design is extremely helpful, from the beginning of the house design stage through to the end, and any questions in between are always answered (sometime with good advice when Paul felt  the need arose).
Paul pleasant personality makes him very approachable and easy to work with.
His unfailing  dealings with council and structural engineers has taken a great weight of my shoulders and his ongoing advise when requested has made my job as an owner builder that much easier.
I would not hesitate recommending Green Square Design to any of my friends

Dear Paul,
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your input & designs for our knockdown/rebuild.
While we had some ideas about how the house should be, your input helped us to crystallize the final design. You asked questions to understand what we wanted & then helped us to achieve it and more. Your design ideas really enhance the rooms without increasing the cost of the build.
We are happy to recommend you to anyone planning renovations or a complete re-build like ours.
Warm regards,
Judith & Tim
