architect vaughn lane (AVL)
Led by the principal architect Vaughn Lane, AVL is
a studio-based architectural practice that works closely with clients
to create simple design-solutions to complex problems. In partnership
with our sister company - Detail Construction - we deliver our clients
a full range of design and construction services, from initial sketch-design
to the completion of building work.
Traditionally the role of the master builder was to organise an entire building project,
from the conception of a building's design to the completion of the building works. Over time,
the role of the master builder separated into three distinct areas: that of the builder; project
manager and architect. Money and energy is often spent linking these three roles back together,
and this cost is usually borne by the client.
A desire to provide an integrated service motivated me to start my own design and building
practices: AVL and Detail Construction. I can collaborate with clients on every stage in the design
and construction process and manage projects from the development of the first sketches to the last
nut and bolt on a job.
For those AVL projects where another builder is engaged, my comprehensive knowledge of the
entire design and construction process allows me to transform problems into opportunities.
