"We began our design journey with Carolyn asking us to give her a few words to describe the kind of house we hoped for. From this simple start, Carolyn was able to envisage just what we wanted and we now have a house that suits us in every way. Thank you Carolyn, we could not be happier with our home."
"From the first time we made contact I have felt that we had chosen the right firm to design our house. Thank you for your outstanding professionalism and fantastic design ideas that have turned the difficult bush clad site into a stunning home for my family.”
"As a builder I have found them to be easy to work with, thorough and professional, with a good understanding of how their plans translate through to the onsite build. I am looking forward to our next project together.”
“We absolutely loved working with Architecture Smith + Scully as they demystified the process, listened to our needs extremely accurately and gifted us a home that we feel extremely appreciative of and grateful for – every day!"

“We absolutely loved working with Smith+Scully on our home. They listened and modernised an established villa for easy living with a busy and active family. The project was well run by the team and the assistance with quality fittings and interior design has led to a home standing the test of time."

“S&S are professional, respectful and create opportunity out of problems which brings about prompt resolution going forward. Their creative flair I feel is up there with all the notable designers whilst remaining grounded. Overall my team at POCL and I would recommend S&S to any prospective people wanting to take on a project."
"The moment we first walked into our Smith and Scully home we fell in love. The original bungalow was treated with respect in the renovation, and the extension flows seamlessly to provide a contemporary space that works brilliantly for our busy family.”
"I believe living in a well designed space is vital for people's well-being, but especially so in the case of those suffering from mobility or other disability issues. Carolyn and the team were brilliant. They patiently listened to my ideas and came up with the perfect design including everything that I wanted. The result is a house that is warm, functional and very stylish"
“Working with Smith & Scully on our extensive house renovations was a very enjoyable process. Most importantly, Carolyn Smith really listened to the ideas I had and incorporated those into the design very well, whilst at the same time providing her own helpful insights into what might (and might not) work in the design."
“I love the light in the house – especially the entrance and the hall ways where you can see views of the rear garden and trees through the house. We enjoy the range of living spaces available – the house works well all year round – and our favourite spaces change depending on the season and weather."
“We have found the team at Architecture Smith and Scully easy to deal with and they have understood our design brief, with the house packed with good design that makes living very comfortable with an element of luxury!"
"When Smith and Scully offered their time, skill and expertise to help us organise and run our major fundraising event to keep our services going, we knew we had special people but we were not prepared for how wonderful. ... On the day they spent many hours at the homes sharing their skills and vision with our visitors."
“All [Motutapu Outdoor Education] projects have been totally successful delivering the functional requirements and coming in on (or under) budget due to very clear & precise detailing that has enabled our construction contractors to accurately price the works. No surprises, nothing left to chance!"
“The Bays Community Housing Trust built two houses in Northcote for older women designed by Smith and Scully Architects. This was a very smooth partnership with Hilary being sensitive and responsive to the special needs of these houses. The result is two lovely houses and ten very happy women living together.”
