Our builder's designer after many attempts failed to come up with a concept we were happy with so we employed the services of Architecture of Spirit, and what a great decision it turned out to be. From the first meeting on site we were impressed by the ideas Greg O'Donnell put forward and the sustainable approach he takes very much suited our ideologies. His initial design was right on the mark and delivered the wow factor we were looking for - far and beyond our wildest expectations. We would happily recommend Architecture of Spirit to anyone wishing for a dynamic space to live in.

Greg's great design ideas helped us immensely in creating our dream Meditation, Cafe, Gardens Sanctuary called the Bamboo Buddha in Holgate on the Central Coast of NSW. Even though we sold the business and property in 2016, it is still thriving with all of the features such as Koi & Goldfish ponds and water features. You can visit the website www.bamboobuddha.com.au. The quality of Greg's design was excellent He was always punctual and reliable and very professional in his dealings with us. We were very satisfied with his work and we are very happy to recommend Greg to anyone requiring architecture with spirit.

I contracted Architecture of Spirit to design my additions and renovations to our small home in Sydney’s inner west without increasing the existing building’s ‘footprint’ due to floor space regulations. It involved excavating a basement and making much better use of existing space. I found Greg O’Donnell to have a calm and friendly manner that belies his experience, professionalism and attention to detail. He deals clearly and calmly with the many small and large issues that arise during such a project. He was always accessible and generous with his time for consultation and advice which we often did by video chat and screen sharing. He was happy to bounce concepts around then work through alternative ideas, a process by which we arrived at what I believe was the optimal design, and all within our budget. We are very happy with his service and with the transformation of our home.”

We located this company after trying other architects who simply did not 'connect' with their ideas. Greg however was a breath of fresh air who, after several exchanges to determine an accurate brief, came up with a number of inspirational designs. The design development and subsequent project management was completed in a thoroughly professional manner, on time and within the agreed budget. The final design and construction are still a source of great satisfaction for us and visitors to this home some 18 years later. I still occasionally look in on the AoS website to peruse Greg's ongoing works and latest innovative designs.

Private commission: Large country house/retreat centre on our 84 acre property at Dyers Crossing NSW taken to DA approval stage but not yet constructed due to budgetary constraints. Local Government: As Projects Manager for 20+ years with North Sydney Council, I engaged Architecture of Spirit to design & document 2 separate projects: a substantial upgrade project at North Sydney Olympic Pool on Sydney Harbour adjacent to the renowned 'Ripples Cafe' and a first floor courtyard upgrade at the Council Chambers. On all projects, Greg O'Donnell (Architecture of Spirit principal) demonstrated good attention to detail, client responsiveness and timely performance.

The creative wonder of Architecture of Spirit's Greg O'Donnell transformed our outdated, non functional entry and reception area into a modern and functional design that flowed beautifully with the existing bush aspect of our school. Greg provided an initial consultation and site meeting, guiding, advising and responding with design ideas and solutions that satisfied all our requirements, including material selection and sustainable environmental considerations. Architecture of Spirit managed the Development Application process whilst also supporting our Building Application Grants process required for us to fully fund our project. Greg was engaged by our school with a very short time frame of 3 months and his capacity to source and engage Engineers, Fire Consultants and Builders for the varying stages of the application is a testament to the efficient and professional manner in which Greg carries himself.
