CVMA Architects is a Sydney based architectural practice.  Established in 1997, the practice combined over 50 years of combine experience with an excellent track record in the building industry. CVMA Architects is an innovative, design-driven practice, focussed primarily on residential design - including new houses, alterations & additions to existing dwellings, dual occupancy, townhouses, granny flats and apartment buildings. We have extensive experience in heritage conservation and interiordesign. Our experience with these types of projects allows us to streamline the planning, designing and approval process.

The practice uses the latest three dimensional computer rendering software that produces photorealistic images. This approach not only allows clients to experience buildings before they are built, but it is also an invaluable tool that allows us to visualise our designs and make necessary refinements to the design.
We have worked on many projects involving heritage buildings as well as buildings within heritage conservation areas. As such, we have a thorough understanding of the unique issues and procedures involved with heritage building design. Furthermore, many of our projects involve adaptations, refurbishments and additions to existing buildings. 

At CVMA Architects we deliver:

  • A personal and responsive service
  • Innovative designs
  • Cost-effective projects
  • Value adding solutions
  • Environmentally friendly products

We are committed to a ‘client oriented’ approach which seeks to use our creative abilities to produce high quality and innovative designs as well as creating environmentally friendly, healthy, and energy efficient homes.
