Architects & Designers
Edgefield Projects is a boutique design consultancy specialising in urban design and housing, with particular expertise in precinct planning for density, infill housing, activity centres, design guidelines and review, ecovillages, retirement housing, and transit-oriented developments. We work collaboratively with State and Local Government, private developers, community groups, and landowners to launch new projects. This includes exploring the development capacity of a site, creating an inspiring vision, assisting in overcoming commercial obstacles through clever strategy, putting in place appropriate development controls, and then guiding the project through the various stages of design to realise the intended outcome. Owner Jeff Thierfelder has qualifications in architecture, town planning and real estate development, is a Registered Planner (PIA), and has 20 years of award-winning industry experience.
