Named after the Māori word for ‘to sit, to dwell’, Noho Architecture takes a holistic and considered approach to residential design. We create comfortable and healing homes that are resource and energy efficient, and we love working with clients to turn houses into dream homes.
Noho Architecture was founded by Justine Money, a British-Maori-Australian Architect who brings a strong cultural sensibility to the practice. This translates into working very collaboratively with other partners across the various design and building phases – including master builders, surveyors, engineers and other consultants – to create homes that cohesively intertwine architecture, interiors and landscape in an environmentally sensitive way.
As an experienced Architect and businesswoman – who has worked in various capacities in the profession since 2001 – Justine understands the magnitude of each clients’ investment, both financial and emotional, and positions herself as an expert guide, steering clients through what might appear to be a daunting process. She draws upon years of experience and technical knowledge to guide clients through the myriad challenges of her five stage design-to-delivery program, to ultimately hand over homes that exceed the brief, and which her clients love spending time in.
Justine found her vocation as an Architect when she was running a successful upholstery business, and commenced study as a mature-age student, graduating from UNSW with a Bachelor of Architecture (Hons). She commenced her Architecture career at Eeles Trelease Architects and during her five-year tenure there, she was promoted to Associate.
In 2014, she founded her own practice Money Design Studio before registering as an Architect and rebranding as Noho Architecture in 2017. Taya Brooks, Architecture graduate, and Alexandra Barrett, Bachelor of Design (Hons), majoring in spatial and graphic design and a current student of Architecture, are key members of the Noho team.
Keen to ensure that Noho’s future projects will minimise their environmental impact on the planet – and deliver lifecycle savings to clients – Justine was awarded a scholarship to complehttps://www.proclima.com.au/recipients/te the Passive House Design Course, which she successfully completed in October 2019. This latest qualification positions her as a leader in the design and delivery of sustainable homes and buildings, with a focus on human comfort and health; energy and resource efficiency; and affordable design and construction costs.
Noho Architecture works with residential clients and community groups to realise their visions of healthy, energy efficient, environmentally sensitive buildings.
Since Justine Money founded Noho Architecture, the practice has completed several residential projects at various scales in locations across Sydney, and the team is currently working on a community centre project for two clients in Canberra.
In her previous capacity as an Associate at Eeles Trelease Architects, Justine worked across a range of project types and scales including multi-residential apartment buildings and aged care facilities, with budgets of up to $10 million, and public assets such as community centres and surf life-saving clubs.
