Our 5 Core Values.

At Ivan Gastaldon Architects we have 5 core values that represent the foundation from which we build. They influence how we think, feel and act, demonstrated through every interaction with our clients. It’s how we work towards a shared vision.

Putting Pen To Paper.

The Ivan Gastaldon philosophy begins and ends with our unique, classical approach to design. We quite literally put pen to paper, bringing our client’s vision to life right before their eyes through hand-drawn design sketches. This traditional approach allows us to capture intuitive elements and ideas in present time that would otherwise be lost.

“When you are stuck, walk away from the computer and draw. It will teach you how to see.” – ANTHONY KIEDIS

Collaborate For Unity & Success.

Our methodology emphasises collaboration. We listen to your wants and needs, working with you to execute your vision while using our wisdom and experience to bring it to life.

As a result, your home becomes an extension of who you are and who you want to be, offering the very best in timeless, functional living.

“I wonder how many opportunities I’ve looked at my entire life and never really seen.” – ANON

Explore The Possibilities.

We believe in the potential the human mind has to go beyond the norm and reach into the depths of the imagination and creation. We believe anything is possible, and through our years of experience we know this to be true. We see solutions where others see problems and opportunities where others see closed doors.

“The ordinary think inside of the box, the extraordinary think outside of the box, but genius thinks inside, outside, below and above the box.” – MATSHONA DHLIWAYO

Act With Insight.

Wisdom is the ability to think and act with knowledge, understanding and insight. With decades of experience behind us, we emphasise the use of wisdom and foresight to create bespoke designs, blending traditional, heritage and contemporary elements that will last for generations.

“Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.” – JEROME K. JEROME

Going Beyond The Brief.

There is nothing we love more than witnessing the total joy on our clients’ faces when we’ve created a space that deeply reflects who they are and the lifestyle they want to live. It’s why we do what we do, but it’s not only about the end result. We offer our clients a seamless experience from the very first Creative Ideas Consult to design execution, going above and beyond the brief to exceed our client’s expectations and over deliver every step of the way.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – ELEANOR ROOSEVELT
