THE A TEAM
Founded in 2016 by Tom Ellwood, Avenue One is committed to delivering world-class residential buildings through innovative design and impeccable service delivery.
Avenue One is composed of highly qualified designers, holding degrees in Applied Science (Architecture), Interior Architecture and Construction Management, so you can rest assured they’ll be able to provide practical design solutions while maximizing the planning controls.
Furthermore, the company’s town planners have all worked in local government as assessing officers, so they understand how the process works, in turn shaping their own town planning reports to reflect the best practice possible, which speeds up the approval process. This means clients can see their project take off a lot sooner, without delays or a lengthy waiting period.
What makes Avenue One so unique is its ability to offer the full service – from design to planning approval, interior design and builder selection. Often there are hidden traps that prohibit the design process, but Avenue One has employed the highest skilled town planners to ensure that every planning control is taken into consideration throughout the design process.
Avenue One has a significant proven performance, impressive in its mere five years of operation. Based in Surry Hills, the company focuses on projects around Sydney’s eastern suburbs, fuelled by the belief that building and renovating homes should enhance the lives of those who live in them.
Tom’s expertise in urban design and town planning as well as his extensive experience as a senior project manager, give Avenue One a unique insight into the entire design and build process.
Tom developed a modern framework that guides clients through each step of the design, planning, and building process. His innovative approach makes designing your high-end home effortless and enjoyable.
Toby collaborates with clients to help them refine ideas and articulate their vision. He is an attentive listener with a knack for translating broad concepts into personalised designs that balance form, function and beauty.
Toby is passionate about incorporating sustainable design principles into projects so that buildings respond to their surroundings while having the least impact on the natural environment.
Dusty loves providing a little office relief and is working towards the highly important task of ordering and collecting the daily office coffees to help support the Avenue One team!
Charlie works closely with Tom and Toby to ensure that all proposed designs comply with the relevant codes and legislation. With a comprehensive understanding of both the NSW and local government area regulatory controls (CDC and DA approvals), he is an integral part of the team who helps Avenue One to gain approval for the leading edge designs they're renown for.
Charlie enjoys pushing the boundaries of the buildable envelope, often suggesting ways in which Avenue One can combine CDC and DA approvals to maximise the potential of developments.
Alice works closely with Toby and the clients to help refine their interior design vision for the project. She is passionate about developing interior concepts and colour / finishes schemes and presenting them to clients through coloured hand sketches and comprehensive detailed drawings.
Alice loves working with natural materials and neutral tones, ensuring continuity with Avenue One's design direction, providing a seamless connection between the internal / external elements.
