Just a note to say how very much we appreciated the work you did for us to create our most wonderful family home. Your ability to listen to us and turn our thoughts, musings and dreams into a tangible space is something to treasure and we feel so very, very lucky to have worked with you and to now live inside one of your beautiful designs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 


I am delighted to write a review for Ross Mackinnon. If you are looking for a building designer who does all of the following then I strongly suggest you have a chat to him. He designs stunning homes, listens to your vision for your home, works in partnership with you to make sure the design reflects the way you want to live. Respects your budget and designs accordingly. Designs for practicality and maximum energy efficiency. He is brilliant with landscape design concepts and is a delight to work with.


Ross from MacKinnon Design is an interested and engaged designer, who maintained his connection to our project from the beginning to the end, including the undertaking of tasks (not included in the brief) when others were unable to assist.
We achieved a fantastically sustainable and contemporary renovation which continues to please us. Working with many constrictions, Ross created light-filled spaces, with clever capture of limited winter sun. Ross is passionate and committed and continues to weave sustainability principles into all his work.


Ross Mackinnon combines empathy with experience, practical skill and a profound design aesthetic to bring life, joy, and logic to the complex project he worked on for me. The result is a space that concurs with my philosophy, and meets all my criteria. Importantly the project came in on time and on budget. Ross's commitment to understand me and my life (style) was central to the result. That he uses traditional hand drawn techniques rather that CAD ensured the project was both unique and not formulaic. I would recommend Ross without hesitation.
