We love the bush. We love living in the beautiful Central Coast and we love designing houses that are in the bush, near the bush or have a tiny glimpse of the bush. 

We want to bring the bush into people's homes.

"We engaged Shea Cullen at Good Architect to design our EcoVillage dream house. On past projects I'd engaged award-winning 'starchitects', and enjoyed the high standard of design and utility.

Shea was less famous and more affordable—but my goodness did she deliver beyond our expectations! Shea is an absolute professional, with equal parts creativity, inspiration, technical mastery and ability to listen.

She worked with us patiently, she took on all our preferences and requests, and became a champion for what was possible.

We never felt pressured to go a certain way, Shea adapted to a change in block and changes in timing. She was always more than fair with fees, and was very flexible in her approach—she really supported us with an incredible design sensibility and intuition.

Shea's background as a sketch artist who'd travelled the world on a scholarship sketching architecture was what drew us to her work—alongside her beautiful use of curved, natural forms in sustainable contexts (think Gaudi meets mid-century cool, but eco!).

Her sketches brought our dreams and visions to life better than any CAD program I've seen (though she provided great CAD and AI-driven reference materials as well). The sketches with watercolour were a much-loved part of the process and something very few architects can offer.

In the end we found a house to purchase and retrofit that borders our EcoVillage—so we've pivoted towards engaging Shea on a masterplan and renovation—and we're now looking forward to another great experience with Shea.

It really is what it says on the sign: Good Architect!" - Jay Chubb
