The “Tree House “ is an exemplar of how sustainable design measures can be successfully incorporated to create both a sophisticated and functional outcome.
— Juror's report, BDAWA Awards 2017

John was able to take the ideas we had in our heads, create a design that included everything on our wish list and then added his touch ( the real WOW factor) which resulted in a beautiful home. The brief included a heavy reliance on natural products,a low carbon footprint, a rainwater tank and no air conditioning. Remarkably John was able to achieve this and within budget.

Throughout the project John has been there to help and guide us. His instinct is uncanny and his professionalism exemplary. We highly recommend John Damant and Arcologic. Without them our dream home would be just that - a dream
— Darren & Susie, North Perth

We cannot imagine living in any other home or how any other home could possibly fit as well as this one does. I love the way the house fits into its location and feels right from every angle.
— Greg & Jo., Southern Brook

We found John to be inspiring in his approach to house design. He presented us with a unique design which made the most of our block and use of weather elements to create an inspiring, eco-friendly, energy efficient house whilst still taking advantage of the breath-taking views.
— Tony & Lisa, Leschenault

John listened to our wish list carefully and came up with something that fits both our personalities.Every day we feel like we are living in the bush but are in reality living in a beautifully designed home. We are so happy in this house, it feels right for us, and a big thank you for such a clever design to John and the team at Arcologic.
— Dave & Margaret, Bridgetown

Thanks to John we have a wonderful, light filled , spacious home with a 7 Star energy rating. It feels like we are living in a luxury resort. This is the second house John has designed for us. It gets better every time. We would highly recommend John and would not hesitate to use his skills and talent if we ever decide to build again.
— Mark & Julie, Wembley

John listens intently and then has the uncanny knack of translating your ideas into practical and inspiring reality.He even knows how to incorporate two seemingly opposing views into an integrated whole at one with the environment.
— Liam & Cath, Dunsborough

We wanted a family home that would perform well from an environmental aspect and feel spacious with a large amount of glazing overlooking the garden. The house performs exceptionally well in both summer and winter with minimal requirement for heating or cooling.
— James & Louise. Perry lakes

John creates innovative homes with a focus on correct orientation, cross flow ventilation and lighting. John is a professional who takes great pride in his work and is committed to achieving the very best outcome on every project.
— Brett and Kirsten, Mullaloo

Excellent experience dealing with John Damant at Arcologic. Very patient at our meetings, great ideas for the type of building we wanted and just really good all round advice. We have been in the house for 6 months now and very happy with the result. Also, very pleased with how the house performs energy wise.
— David & Theda, Wembley Downs

Providing a new initiative and direction for the regional housing industry. With a highly resolved and functional layout, this house is a well considered and extremely livable response to the brief.
— Jurors report, REAL competition

Although you use buzzwords like ‘green’ and ‘sustainable’, this is not empty worded marketing but your designs are the real thing
— Jun, Fremantle

We were unsure whether living on a 300 sqm block was going to suit us, but I feel confident that this design is going to be an absolute pleasure to live in. We are both very happy and impressed with the result so thank you for understanding what we wanted, and being able to translate that into something quite amazing
— Wayne and Mel, Perry Lakes

The process of designing and construction were both extremely rewarding from an owner perspective. I was able to realize my concept through John and then watch the construction of that concept through the builder. I am totally satisfied with both the design and the execution
— Nan, Port Denison

Our new solar passive home was completed in 2015 and we have been extremely happy with how it has turned out. Thanks to John and Arcologic for designing us our dream home. John listened to our wish list carefully and came up with something that fits both our personalities.Every day we feel like we are living in the bush, but are in reality living in a beautifully designed home. We are so happy in this house, it feels right for us and a big thank you for such a clever design to John and the team at Arcologic.
— Dave and Margaret, Bridgetown .WA

John Damant from Arcologic was able to bring all the essential elements of solar passive design, natural materials, cooling breezes, plus abundant natural light together in a very modern design to suit a beach lifestyle. The result is a very unique home that utilizes each square metre of the block to maximum advantage. John is genuinely passionate about living in harmony with the environment and harnessing our natural resources to create homes that are not only sustainable, healthy and energy efficient but attractive as well. If all new homes were designed in line with the principles applied by Arcologic we would be creating far more sustainable and attractive suburbs. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi “ you must be the change you wish to see in the world” and Arcologic makes that change easy when choosing to build a new home. I strongly recommend Arcologic as a design service for those wishing to make positive change to the way we build and live in Perth
