We have worked with STEA on five designs leading to three completed projects over 15 years including a new build for a low-budget farm shed and container residence. Our Hydeaway Beach house makes you appreciate the natural world in all seasons. STEA's commercial background in large projects has been invaluable in presenting innovative and cost-effective solutions.

Steve’s designs have a strong response to the site landscape and climate including protection from searing summer sun and blasting winter winds, orientation to warming winter sun and cooling summer breezes. Investigations into energy-efficient building materials resulted in buildings requiring minimum energy for heating and cooling. Each project is always very pleasing spatially and aesthetically.

As an artist I was impressed with Steven ability to think outside of the square and to make my vision reality. My guests are constantly awestruck by the design. The time Steve took to study the local climate has created cooling airflows while having a significant impact on my day to day costs. I can’t recommend Stea (and Steve) highly enough to design your next project.
