How can I help you?

My name is Stephen Salley and I am the Principal Architect here at HBK Architects.

New clients often ask me, why are HBK Architects unique?

Good Question!

We are unique because we offer a personal design service where all our houses are designed specifically to suit your lifestyle, dreams and location. Being a small practice, dedicated to creating stunning homes for our clients, you will work closely with one of our Architects who will be involved with you from inception to completion.

I have designed and built my own home for my family to enjoy. Going through this process has given me a unique perspective as both designer AND client. This has helped me understand the dreams, excitement AND fears associated with building your own home.

Designing and building your own home is a fun and exciting process. The end result enhanced my lifestyle and gave me something to be proud of.

At this stage you probably have lots of questions and anxieties starting the process. Feel free to contact us and we can set up an initial consultation to discuss your project and how we can help you.

Why do I love what I do?

Hi, I’m Ryan and I have been part of the team here at HBK Architects for 16 years.

Why do I love what I do?

Simple – I love being creative. As a child I always spent hours drawing. Art & Design was my favourite subject in school.

Outside the office my main hobby is playing drums in my band, we are always creating new music to record and perform live. I love starting with a dream and turning it into something I can say ‘Wow, I did that!’

Being an Architect allows me to create everyday. I get to take my client’s dreams and help guide them towards that feeling of ‘Wow!’.

Like Stephen, I have also designed and started to build my own family home. Along with my wife Ruth, who is also an Architect, we have got a great insight into all the emotions involved in creating something special for our family.

Do you require the experience and expertise that we offer?
