Hello! I'm Amelia Lee.
I'm the architect behind
Undercover Architect exists to change your reno or new build experience.
So that you can enjoy it, get it right, and create a beautiful family home.
As a wife, and mum to these crazy 3, and as an architect and serial renovator, I know when you 'get it right' with your reno or new build, it makes life simpler, more fun and creates a family home that works - now and into the future.
I also know, personally and professionally, the stress, frustration, satisfaction and joy of building and renovating your home – whilst juggling the busy demands of family life.
When I went on maternity leave with our eldest, my hubby and I were doing our second renovation project.
I went from being an architect managing a huge project and big team, to a mum-with-a-baby-on-her-hip-who-got-ignored-on-site.
Wow ... did it open my eyes to just what you – the homeowner – regularly deal with in your projects. It needed to change.
I started Undercover Architect to create this change. With two decades of residential design, renovating and building experience, I know the right advice and information can make a radical difference to the way you create your homes, and how stressful and costly the journey is.
Over the last 25+ years, I’ve trained professionally, and built extensive experience in over 250 projects – clients’ and my own.
I'm on a mission to teach you what you need to know. So you don’t have to make mistakes. Mistakes that can cost time, money and cause mountains of stress as you create your future home.
Undercover Architect provides information to you – wherever you are – so you can be empowered and get actively involved as a super savvy homeowner in your project. Stronger, more confident, and able to claim your rights.
And it also gives you access to my years (and years) of architectural experience and expertise, so you can benefit from this industry insider knowledge. In a way that changes how you get to live in – and beyond – your home.
Our homes are important. They are permanent places, and the decisions to create them can last for generations.
Your home can be SO much more than accommodation. It can be your heaven and haven – the place you share and celebrate with family and friends, make memories, relax and enjoy.
Sound like the type of place you’d love to live? Let’s get started … you’re in the right place.
Whatever your dreams, budget or location … here’s to helping you create a home that works for your family – now and always.
