Y Architecture


Y Architecture is a small boutique practice based in Melbourne, Victoria.

The practice specialises in residential architecture, with a focus on crafted solutions base on clients' needs, budget and site constraints and opportunities.

We believe that a successful project is the outcome of successful client and architect relationship. This relationship is born out of In-depth understanding of clients' individuality and sensitive appreciation of our clients' needs.

Good design takes time. It requires constant refinement to get to the end result. Y Architecture takes our clients through this exciting journey of discovery of what that outcome might be. With the aim of clients' satisfaction in mind, we explore options and opportunities whilst maintaining clear communications, balancing budget and program target.

We believe that clever architectural design can make a difference in everyday life. Clever design produces functional yet aesthetically pleasing outcome which enhances quality of life for its occupants.

No project is too small for clever ideas. No budget is too small for creative solutions.

"I engaged Yan of Y Architecture for my first major home renovation project.

The original plan was for Yan to provide services for planning and building permit as I already had a concept from another architect previously. However, as I did not have the digital drawings, Yan needed to redo the concept again.

Yan sought to understand my requirements and after a few iterations, came up with an alternate design which turned out to be a much better design than the original concept, much to my delight.

Yan provided a turn-key solution from engaging authorities (council, water), engaging consultants where needed (building surveyor, civil engineer, energy efficieny) to peparing and submitting for permits.

I am very impressed with Yan's professional approach and would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs an architect."

"Dynamic and adventurous !
Working with Y Architectural has been a rewarding process. From start, the Architect understood the brief and was willing to explore all different schemes and material in coming with the final layout that me and my wife were very pleased.
We anxiously wait for the final building to be constructed and move into our dream home. "

"As experienced renovators working from a draughted plan we took the leap into architecture. Having been turned off impractical architects who run costs up on self indulgent solutions from various friend's accounts we have been very pleased with Yan's unpretentious nature. She is always suggesting ways to save money while being thoughtful of where to best spend our money to suit OUR needs based on extensive consultation."

"As a first time renovator, Yan was able to assist us from the early stages of our project all the way to providing good working drawings that we could take to our builder. She provided some fantastic design ideas and was always mindful of the budget that we were working towards. Would definitely use Yan again and recommend to others."

"Yan was the only quote submitted that understood my brief clearly without suggesting that we go overboard with soil tests. structural analysis etc. As experienced renovaters we wanted good working drawings that we could take to our preferred builder and commence an iternal renovation. I'm really impressed with Yan's approach and ability to understand a client requirements to the letter. We hope to work with Yan again when we get down to the design phase. "
