LUXURY BY DESIGN

Bring your definition of luxury to life with tailored architectural solutions.

At V Three Architecture, we believe everyone deserves to live in luxury. Of course, ‘luxury’ means different things to different people. Perhaps it’s a huge walk-in wardrobe, lavish marble benchtops or a functional, multi-tasking living space that manages to serve each member of your family.

Whatever luxury means to you, that’s what V Three Architecture brings to life. With an architectural philosophy founded on three key concepts – Fresh ideas, beautiful Form, and everyday Function – we create dynamic new homes and renovations that transform your lifestyle. At a practical level, this means:

• Understanding the needs of your family
• Improving your living conditions
• Increasing your useable space
• Incorporating the key features into your forever home

ABOUT

At V Three Architecture, our mission is powerfully simple: to make your desires a reality, with beautiful, functional homes that individualise luxury at a workable price. From the smallest renovation to the biggest new construction, we love thinking outside the box, solving problems, visualising beautiful spaces, and – most of all – hearing our clients say, ‘You nailed it.’

These core values keep us aligned to our mission:

Collaboration

Nothing is more important to us than the personal relationships we form with our clients, builders, and suppliers. This mutual understanding, trust, and open communication forms the foundation of our working partnership, enabling us to truly collaborate and create something special.

Precision

We believe in dotting our I’s, crossing our T’s, abiding by the rules (but also knowing when it’s okay to bend them!), and doing things right the first time, every time. If it’s worth doing, we believe it’s worth doing well.

Vision

A pioneering and agile firm, not only do we respond to change, we lead the way. Embracing innovation, functionality, and contemporary solutions, we take a fresh approach to achieve your goals.

With V Three Architecture, a life of luxury in your forever home is not only possible – it’s actually affordable.

CONSULTATION

A pre design consultation is an important first step, especially for those new to the building process. This consultation will provide you with the opportunity to discuss the planning, design and construction of your renovation. Vicky will talk you through the process and once the brief has been taken, she will start implementing the first stages of your project.
  • Consultation 
  • Preliminary review of council and building codes
  • Co-ordinate a land survey
  • Site measure up and draw up existing conditions
CONSULTATION

SKETCHING

Sketching out design concepts bring your ideas to life. This phase allows you to provide feedback, ensuring the vision for your renovation is reflected in the design. Vicky will work with you, providing advice towards aesthetics, form and functionality along the way.

  • Prepare sketch design floor plan options for review.
  • Develop preferred plan until ideal layout achieved.
  • Draw up on CAD for approval.

SKETCHING

DESIGN

Once a floor plan is agreed on it will need to be developed into a three dimensional building and further refined to incorporate all elements from the design brief. We will begin to think about materials and colours and how the building responds to the site and any existing or adjoining buildings.

  • Prepare preliminary elevations and sections for review
  • Discuss materials and finishes
  • Complete external envelope design
DESIGN

TOWN PLANNING

Whilst not all projects require a town planning permit, all buildings must comply with council regulations. Vicky will advise you on these requirements and assess any overlooking, overshadowing, site coverage and permeability issues, ensuring the proposed design is suitable. Vicky will also manage the Town Planning process taking away the stress of dealing with local council.


  • Prepare drawings suitable for council submission. 
  • Submit to council and liaise with council to achieve a Town Planning permit.

DOCUMENTATION

Documentation is the preparation of drawings, notes, and technical specifications necessary for pricing, permit application and construction. Vicky will co-ordinate with the necessary external consultants to resolve the specific details of the project such as structure, ventilation, plumbing and energy rating. A final review of the complete set will allow the client to provide feedback before issuing of the permit.


  • Set up Documentation set of drawings.
  • Co-ordinate external consultants.
  • Receive, review and incorporate external consultant advice.
  • Complete documentation set suitable for review by Building Surveyor.
DOCUMENTATION

INTERIORS

Whether you have lots of ideas for your design aesthetic or no a clue at all, Vicky will help you realise your vision for the spaces and turn these into drawings and specifications that will allow a builder to turn them into reality.

  • Prepare preliminary internal elevations and list of suggested fittings and finishes. 
  • Review and complete internal elevations and schedules.

TENDERING

VThree Architecture recommends that all projects be priced by 2-3 builders to ensure a competitive price for the construction work. This can often be difficult process, however Vicky has much experience liaising with builders to ensure a fair tender and a reasonable outcome.


  • Assist with preparation of a Tender list
  • Issue drawings and specifications to Tenders
  • Receive and respond to any tender queries
  • Review tenders and provide feedback to the client
  • Meeting with client and preferred tenderer to sign building contracts.
TENDERING

CONSTRUCTION

Once construction begins there is often a need for architectural assistance on site regarding additional details, finishes selection and co-ordination etc. VThree Architecture provides a service that can be tailored to the amount of involvement you require ranging from as-needed phone or email advice to full service management to assist the time poor client through the process and ensure the result reflects the initial intent.

  • Conduct site meetings.
  • Respond to RFI's.
  • Provide additional details, resolve design queries and assist with re-selection of fittings and finishes. 
  • Assess progress claims, EOT's, final payment and completion of the works.

I have had the pleasure of working with Vicky Canavan from V Three Architecture for over five years on a variety of developments. Vicky displays a high standard of professionalism within her work and possess the skill to balance innovation and creativity with the ability to view the project from concept to completion with buildability in mind. I would never hesitate to recommend Vicky as a leader in her industry and she is always my first choice in Architecture.
