We have been trading under Prentice Design Pty Ltd for the past 15 years. Now with new premises in Dulwich Hill, we have taken the opportunity to rebrand with a new trading name more reflective of our ethos.
Commencing with taking over my father’s building design practice and sole trading as EHPS in 1996, Prentice Design Pty Ltd was formed in 2000.
We moved to new current premises at the start of 2015 and welcomed Rebecca Popovic to our team.
Over that time we have helped many of our clients with the realization of their new residential, commercial and industrial projects.
We work with you to design the places where you live, work and play.
We listen to your ideas, visions and dreams. We give those thoughts structure and direction.
The process of dealing with councils can be daunting. We have almost twenty years of experience running a design practice in Sydney’s Inner West.
Our clients come to us looking for solutions to projects in residential, commercial and industrial categories. Heritage is a large part of working in the more established areas of Sydney.
From Ku-Ring-Gai in the north, Sutherland in the south, Camden in the west and to Woollahra in the east – our clients are all over Sydney. As we are based in the Inner West, a large number are from the Inner West. We have worked on projects in Brisbane, Moree, Southern Highlands and Tasmania.

I have always been involved in building.
My father, who ran a planning and design consultancy, would take me on to building sites from as early as I can remember. We were constantly renovating with me being a cheap source of labour.
Just before my 21st birthday I purchased the ultimate ‘renovators special’ which was a true trial by fire. We built it up, making up processes and learning all along the way, until we had renovated it into a beautiful little home. The thrill of transforming not only the look, but the sensorial quality of a place was a revelation to me.
It took me another 8 years, and another two renovation projects, until I was ready to take the plunge and enter career changing studies of Architectural Drafting at SIT then Architecture at UTS.
I started my own design practice when I was still only in second year of university and have been continuing since. Over the years I have worked collaboratively with a number of architects.
In 2015 we took over our new premises and decided to rename the practice based on the development of our direction, from prentice design to karmatecture. Our name is reflective of my belief that good architecture and building should have soul and carries with it a responsibility to be a agent of positive change not only for our clients, but also for the local community.
I love the idea of the Bespoke and the Crafted.
A building and a space can be all those things where it is made to suit; suited to be made; and made to look great. I get excited about providing clarity in a floor plan and composition in a form and its reflecting that clarity and composition in the design service that is key to the best result. Be it the drawings, the building information model or the technical specification and reporting, these are all essential pieces to crafting that perfect final product.
After doing the hard yards through TAFE and University, I come with a technical diploma and two design degrees in Architecture. I joined karmatecture in 2015 and enjoy the attention to detail, design and service that Greg has for many years provided to the community.
