"We wanted to create a home for ourselves drawing on our vast building experience and love of the area with an architect who has a passion for creating beautiful built form and spaces which would not only fulfil our needs but rather enrich our lives. Our research and experience with many architects over many years led us to Wolveridge.
People often ask us if we could alter anything about the house, what we would alter. Our answer is nothing!
All in all, our house is simply stunning and not only meets but overwhelmingly exceeds our initial vision and design brief. We feel extremely proud of our house and absolutely love the home we have created."
Vicki and Steve, Tranquility Beach House 2015
“A remarkable outcome. We have a family home which we think is superbly comfortable, functional and extremely beautiful. Jerry understood us so well and the level of service and professionalism from him and the team made the whole process a great pleasure.”
Natalie and Steve, Northcote Project 2014
“You and your team have managed to capture the feel of exactly what we were after - raw, a simple escape, in complete contrast from our city house. lt is unique and beyond comparison. Upon reflection the design period was smoothly managed by you and Ricky. We always felt confident that all was in order and well managed. The enthusiasm with which you approached the project and brought up new ideas and concepts was marvelous. Working together with you as a team we have been able to bring our aspirations to reality.”
Phil and Virginia, Eltham South 2013
“We have now had Wolveridge Architects design three houses for our family and each one of them have been amazing homes to live in and fantastic building experiences….it is not often that you find yourself sitting in a room and simply enjoying it for the space it is, enjoying the space that has been considered for you to live in. It may on the surface look like a costly decision to head down the architectural path, but the advantages of having an architect like Wolveridge Architects design your home, are nothing but rewarding personally and financially. To have an architect complete a full design from a simple brief was invaluable.”
Mark and Briohny, Prescott Avenue Residences 2004, 2008 & 2013
“We first noticed Wolveridge when my husband noticed a property being built on a very ordinary block of land. The house had a very impressive design which enhanced the block greatly. From our first meeting with Jeremy we knew we had made the right choice as he listened to our wants and needs and designed accordingly. His designs are unique and functional and he is well known for his visually stunning coastal designed homes. Jeremy and the team at Wolveridge are an absolute pleasure to work with and their professionalism is unsurpassed. We are now in our new home and are 100% happy, so much so that he is now designing house number 3 for us.”
Phillip & Diana, Roseneath Residences, Sorrento 2012
“The creative team was brilliant and we loved the initial design so much that there was minimal variation to that design. The team at WA were accommodating, professional and encouraging of ideas and requirements we had for the interior….we recommend Jerry and his team very highly and if we were ever to undertake another residential project, Jerry would be our first call.”
Becca & Scott, Torquay House 2012
“As builders specializing in Architectural housing it has been an absolute pleasure working with Wolveridge Architects. On a business level the team from Wolveridge Architects, Jerry, Sina & Tjeerd were always available to deal with any questions or work through any resolutions, their decision making and administration is done efficiently resulting in a cohesive and smooth running project.”
John Walker, Master Builders, Torquay House 2012
“We had a great experience working with Wolveridge Architects. From the brief to the concept, final design and execution, the process was seamless. Jeremy is a great listener, receptive to feedback and flexible but always careful to maintain the integrity of the design and his overall aesthetic vision for the project. We couldn’t be happier with the process and the result and we would definitely work with them again on future projects.”
Susan and Justin, Toorak House 2011
"Our association and experience with Wolveridge Architects has been very enjoyable and rewarding. We found particularly helpful Jerry's ability to sketch concepts while we talked enabling us to visualise and explore various design alternatives. The outcome was very pleasing: our vision and brief had been transformed into a stylish, modern, comfortable, family home, more than worthy of the fabulous greenfield site.”
Camilla and Joby, Upper Beaconsfield House 2011
“…like any relationship it takes one party to be the rational one, that’s Jeremy. He is the level headed listener, the creative one that interprets what you want as a client, and molds that with his aesthetic to give you what you think you want. Jeremy and I have done three houses together now, (he also designed a house for my parents) so it would be fair to say I like what he does. In both cases I used builders that Jeremy had researched and recommended, both houses came in on budget and without grief from unhappy builders.”
Sean Cussell, Dune House 2010, Trent Jones Drive House 2008
“Our first meeting with Jerry was very exciting. We happily explained how we lived our lives and how we wanted the house plans to suit us and our dog. Within weeks Jerry showed us his designs and we were instantly impressed without too many changes all went into place. Jerry has such an eye for detail, the choices for material internally and externally were just that little bit different and his confidence in them made our decision easier, this is what makes Wolveridge Architects so unique.”
Simon & Katrina, Mount Martha Residence 2010
“I have had a working relationship with Wolveridge Architects for approximately 15 years. I consider it an absolute privilege to have had this relationship with one of the leading architects. As a builder, I find that Wolveridge Architects have a great balance between creative and practical considerations which is a great outcome for his clients.”
Mark Brindley, MRB Constructions

“I have worked with many architects in my work as a colour consultant and developer but have found Wolveridge Architects to be the most inspiring, amiable, passionate and understanding and creative. Nothing was too much for you and you made the experience of building our home a very relaxed and easy experience. We look forward to working with you and your team again.”
Sadhna and Darrell, The Bent Wedge Project, Southbank, 2010
“…a magnificent house that takes full advantage of seamless indoor/outdoor living areas with large, shady eaves and marvellous cross flow ventilation….at the same time there are a multitude of private areas where you can hide away and feel as though you are alone in your tropical hideaway. We found that Jerry patiently listened to our “ideas” and then applied his extensive and creative expertise to create the perfect house – Jerry and his wonderful team met our expectations in every way.”
Jenny and Brad, Six, Port Douglas 2006
“We were absolutely delighted with the input of Jerry and his team on our building project. From the preliminary meetings, they succeeded in converting our somewhat hazy design objectives into a concept that delivered everything we were looking for. Their design work and project management expertise demonstrated an abundance of flair, coupled with a practical approach that enabled us to achieve our desired outcomes. Every interaction that we had with the Wolveridge team was friendly, courteous and fun. All in all, a very satisfying customer experience.”
David and Janee, Six, Port Douglas 2006
“Over the past 12 years we have worked with Jerry to convert half our home into a modern, private self-contained 4 ½ star B&B, renovate an old disused knackery into “The Nak” (a bush retreat) and plan an 8 unit townhouse development for a 1 acre block. Jerry is not only a great architect but a great guy who has “the nak” of putting a window in just the right spot.”
Raema and Moz, The Nak 2004
“We purchased a vacant block of land (165sqm) in inner city Richmond which all our friends thought was a crazy thing to do. How could you build a family house on that small a block? We wrote a brief of what we wanted and spoke to a few architects. They came back to us with some interesting concepts but it was clear that Jerry Wolveridge was the only architect that really listened to us. The children also enjoyed meeting Jerry and discussing their bedrooms and their requirements. Jerry treated them as clients, and they loved it.”
Peter and Louise, Richmond Townhouse 2003
“Jerry's work is what keeps me in this jungle of an industry. I've watched his ideas develop and form over 14 years and feel a great privilege to be asked to bring to reality his ideas and visions. My own career would not be where it is today without the challenge of Jerry's work. Our learning together over this time has given me the courage and ability to tackle almost any domestic architectural build.”
Andrew Pope, Pope Constructions P/L
“My wife, Rosie, & I engaged Jerry Wolveridge to renovate & extend our holiday house. The house was a ‘60’s style “beach house” and the renovations & extensions were done to complement and retain the original character. It was an exciting project and Jerry’s attention to detail in preparing the Design & Scope of Works combined with his overall supervision was fantastic. The end result confirmed our choice of Architect was perfect.”
Alan and Rosie, Mornington House 2004
