Alison is the principal architect and has extensive involvement in each project from the early phase of design development as well as administering projects throughout the construction period.
After graduating from RMIT, Alison has spent 15 years gaining invaluable experience at a number of Melbourne architectural firms. Alison has been involved in both residential and commercial work throughout Melbourne and surrounding regions, but is primarily inspired by her residential work. Alison started her own small business at Alison Dodds Architect in 1991, where she continues to deliver exceptional buildings along with innovative and cost effective architectural solutions.
Angela graduated from Architecture at Deakin University and has since gained experience working for several inner city architectural firms. Angela has a strong belief in socially inclusive design where architecture can nurture community.
She is interested in the way that design can impact our experience of dense urban living.
Eve joined Alison Dodds Architect in 2003 after completing a Bachelor of Architecture with Honours from RMIT in 2000, and with experience working in a number of small to medium size practices. As a skilled and innovative designer, she has a natural affinity with construction and use of materials. Eve is committed to personal improvement and has an active interest in investigating new concepts and products to challenge and enhance the firms design capacity. Her focus on good communication with clients and builders alike is key to a successful working partnership and a smooth building process.
Eliza came to ADA with a Land Surveying background and after completing a Diploma in Building Design and Construction at RMIT she joined the company in 2006. Eliza's design strength is an eye for detail across a range of scales. From her interest in finely designed joinery to the accuracy and spatial awareness evident in her design resolution, her experience in surveying has crafted and driven her skill set. Her ongoing involvement in design development enables Eliza to enjoy the continuous process of transforming ideas into built form.
