Whatever your goal in life, Maria Filardo is a shining example that great things can happen when you break from the mold and challenge the status quo.
From a young age, Maria dreamed of opening her own boutique architecture and interior design practice. She aspired to make a difference to the industry, creating modern, creative designs to stand out and grab the attention of those with a passion for all things beautiful.
Before opening her own practice, Maria worked hard to refine her architecture and interior design skills whilst working for other organisations. She worked on a number of award-winning projects, developing her own distinctive and inventive style.
Maria Filardo Architecture is the culmination of her knowledge and expertise in both areas; enabling her to provide a unique, complete service. She works with a variety of clients, for both residential and commercial projects, offering a full range of architecture and interior design services.
Maria’s exceptional skillset empowers her to go the extra mile for her clients, and she can direct a project all the way from inception to completion. She often starts with the concept sketches, which will then be used to inform the full design and necessary documentation. Her expertise is used to assist clients with council approvals and contract administration, ensuring her clients’ projects run as smoothly as possible. The interior design compliments her architectural style beautifully. It doesn’t matter whether she’s designing on a residential, commercial or hospitality project; her work always meets the client’s requirements whilst providing unexpected and flawless results.
In addition to a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise, Maria also cares about the environment. She takes great pride in ensuring that, where possible, ecological practices are used in the implementation of her designs. She also makes smart choices when it comes to the materials used, sourcing sustainable resources without compromising on the quality of the end result. This admirable approach further strengthens her offering, making her a popular choice with families and organisations seeking premium architecture and designs that protect the earth’s fragile ecosystem.
With Maria, nothing is ordinary. She takes the time to get to know her clients and fully understand their requirements. This enables her to produce completely bespoke designs, tailored to compliment each client, capturing their own unique style, personality and ethos. She enjoys the variety of her work. One day she could be working on the architectural design for a traditional family home, and the next might be spent drafting concept sketches of a butcher’s commercial property. Whether working on a small family extension, or a large commercial project, her commitment to quality remains the same.
Despite many years of experience within the industry, Maria is committed to learning. She ensures her business keeps up to date with the latest trends and innovations, both in terms of the materials she uses and the technology.
The highlight of any project, for Maria, is witnessing the end result. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than seeing another happy client, which drives her dedication to achieving great things.
