“It’s an amazing experience to work with a designer who not only respects your brief but takes it to a level well beyond your expectations. We engaged Tom from Halcyon to design a two-storey home for a small block in Wembley Downs. At our initial meeting he got a detailed feel for what we liked and what we didn’t, and it was a really interactive process as we all threw around some ideas.
When the first draft of the design came back, we were blown away. In some ways it was quite different to what we had initially thought (based on countless visits to display homes). In reality, it was so much better than we had dreamed. Tom had really understood what we wanted to achieve, the opportunities and challenges of our block, and delivered us a creative design that made sense in every way. There were “wow” features that we never imagined. As he took the time to talk us through the design concept, we were hooked.
We are so glad that we chose Halcyon Designs and are delighted to recommend them to others.”

Upper Floor Addition
“Tom at Halcyon Designs helped us improve our home by designing an additional storey for us. After initially designing additional rooms downstairs, we changed our minds and went up instead. The addition has changed our lives with life now a little easier and definitely more enjoyable. Tom's design was perfect, with the space available well utilised from a comfort and function perspective.
Tom also had a strong working relationship with our builder (who initially recommended Tom) meaning there was no "blame game" between builder and designer. Instead, it was a stress free build. We would recommend Tom to anyone undertaking additions to their home.”

“We engaged Tom in early 2017 to design a new two storey house on a narrow in-fill block in Perth’s southern suburbs. Tom produced an outstanding floor plan which captured our requirements perfectly. He was also happy to draw up multiple elevations so we could ultimately select the one we liked best.
Tom was thoughtful in every aspect of the design process, and offered us various options where we were uncertain about how an internal design element might look. We are very excited to bring Tom’s design to life and have no hesitation in recommending him to other potential clients.”

Custom Narrow Lot
“We were super impressed in how, after giving Tom a long wish list and definite ‘don’ts’ he had our design 95% nailed after only one meeting. Tom’s creativeness shone through and the finishing touches (or the wow factor) have turned our dream into a reality.
Tom was easy to work with and was able to interpret our vague ideas for a house on a long, narrow block into something amazing. We would highly recommend Halcyon Designs to anyone looking to design their new home.”

“Tom from Halcyon Designs was a fantastic partner for our latest development project. The understanding of our brief and creative design solutions produced a unique product in a very competitive market, while the detailed working drawings lead to accurate ordering and onsite works, minimising errors and aiding cost control. Tom’s design and knowledge of the relevant building codes where integral to our latest project being a success.”
