Ruth Newman Architect (RNA) is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice with expertise across Residential, Commercial, Government, Retail and Hospitality Design.

Residential Design

Whether you want to renovate or extend your home, create your new forever home or build a new Duplex, Ruth Newman Architect can help. Our approach to a residential project varies as every client is different and what they need us to do to for them is different but with our 100% success rate for DA approvals with Sutherland Shire Council we are well positioned to deliver your project.

Where to go to get your new home project started…

  • Initial Consultation: Contact us for a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your project and the design process, and get to know each other a little better. Here we can help you understand how the process of engaging an architect works, what we can do for you and decide if you would like to implement a formal consultation.
  • Client meeting: This involves a 60 minute meeting at your house in the Sydney Metropolitan Region to look at your property and understand what your key challenges are and how we can help you address those challenges. Following this meeting we will prepare an Architectural proposal detailing the work required to provide a design solution and agree on the next steps for your project. Once you accept this proposal we start designing your home.
  • Detailed Consultation: For those people who need a more detailed meeting to completely understand the process and discuss all of the design ideas before they proceed, we offer a 2 hour consultation in our office looking at previous projects and providing some initial design advice.
