We enlisted in Jakub (JC Design Studio) services in November 2018 to assist with the conceptualisation and design of our family home. Jakub was a consummate professional throughout the whole process. His strengths lie in really listening to his client’s needs, which helped to create a seamless and stress-free design process. As a Building Designer, we feel Jakub has great interpersonal skills, is relatable, flexible and adaptive to his client’s needs. We are incredibly satisfied with the level of high quality customer service and felt Jakub has played an intrinsic role in making our vision become reality.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jakub , so thank you for helping create the perfect forever home for us. We would recommend Jakub to all of our friends and family.
Mount Claremont Residence
Jakub is an absolute professional. I am sure we are one of “those” clients people would describe as “difficult ones” as we weren’t 100% sure what we were after to start with though we believed we had a basic idea. Jakub entertained all our uncertainties and would help us visualise the various options on the design until we would settle on the one we liked most. He had good suggestions on how to improve various aspects and always responded very quickly. Couldn’t fault his services at all. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a design and drafting professional and would definitely go back to him again if we need help.
North Perth Family Home Renovation
We did a massive renovation on a 1925 built home. We hired JC Design to help us with extensions. Turned a 2×1 into a 3×2 to suit our needs and practicality. Jakub came up with some fantastic ideas that maximised the space while meeting all our requirements. He has great knowledge of the building industry and can advise on where to save. Highly recommended!
Killeen Farmhouse Renovation
Jakub Chruscinski of JC Design studio has been instrumental in designing a large 500m2 under roof renovation extension to a farm homestead for my client. I found Jakub to have a great ability to listen to client and builder. He created footprint plans and 3D visions of the proposed project to great effect. Jakub engaged competent consultants, eg. assessor and certifier and compiled all documents ready for permit application on time and budget. I was very impressed with his expedient and professional manner and would recommend him as an innovative designer. Many thanks Jakub.
It was a pleasure working with Jakub. He did a wonderful job designing the renovation of our federation worker’s cottage and we can’t thank him enough. His mix of creative flair and practical design skills has enabled us to retain the heritage charm of our home while making it functional for modern living. Along with having great skills, Jakub is also a lovely guy and made the whole design process enjoyable. We would highly recommend him to others.
City Beach Residence
Jakub has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has made the whole drafting process that much less stressful and a lot more enjoyable. Utilising CAD 3D images of the plans we have been able to go through the entire house room by room and make improvements on many levels. Window and wall size and placement, materials selection colours, bulkhead positions, cabinetry layout, plumbing and tap placement, all elements that are not obvious on 2D plans but which make an enormous difference to how a room looks and feels once built. Jakub has a very sound knowledge of building requirements and is willing to make recommendations to improve design, maximise light and utilisation of space. He is very reliable and committed to delivering exactly what he promises on time. Jakub went above and beyond to meet council lodgement deadlines and he communicates clearly and concisely with other professionals including engineers, assessors and builders. I highly recommend Jakub for an interactive, thorough, fun and professional design and drafting experience.
Craig Steere Architects
Jakub Chruscinski has provided contract drafting services on a number of occasions for our office, CSA Craig Steere Architects, over the past 12 months, predominantly drafting construction drawings for high end, bespoke residential homes. Jakub is a very courteous and pleasant team member to have within our office. Jakub displays sound construction knowledge, prepares neat and clear drawings and is very time efficient and strives for quality and accuracy at all times. To assist with this efficiency, Jakub has developed a number of personal systems to keep close track of daily task requests together with any adjustments discussed throughout the day. I always felt confident that if we discussed a task, Jakub would attend to it as required and should he ever be unsure, you were always confident he would communicate with you for clarification. This level of self motivation, accuracy, efficiency and quality is paramount within our office at CSA Craig Steere Architects and Jakub remains at the top of our list to contact for availability, when we need additional backup.
We contacted JC Design & Drafting after noting they do not keep a sole copyright over the design. This was important to us as most builders & draftspeople do keep the copyright. From the beginning Jakub has made every effort to understand our requirements and reflect those in the drawings. Being able to sit with him while he made adjustments to our drawings directly in his program was a real advantage as we were able to see the effect the changes had in other areas of the house. We found Jakub to be very knowledgeable suggesting changes that would improve the design and make the approval process smoother. We would definitely recommend JC Design & Drafting to anyone requiring the services of a draftsperson.
Mosman Park Addition
My wife Maria and I hired Jakub to draught up the renovation plans to our new house. We both found Jakub to be very easy to work with, he has excellent knowledge of the “R Codes” which assisted us greatly and his experience helped us improve the design of our project. We would highly recommend Jakub’s services, he delivers when he says he will deliver, he is reliable, easy to contact, and conducts his work in a very professional manner.

Steve Artelaris Architects
I contracted JC Design & Drafting to assist me with the design sketch plans for the additions and alterations on an existing cottage residence on Monument Street, Mosman Park. I knew the Clients were going to be very hands-on in both the design and construction of the new works so I suggested Jakub take my initial drawings and take further instruction from the Clients to develop the design further. Jakub meticulously and quickly produced accurate as-existing drawings and various options to assist the Client’s decision making processes. Jakub produced high quality detailed documents suitable for submission for Planning Approvals. I was impressed with his initiative and professionalism and the caring approach he had with the Clients. I would have no hesitation to recommending JC Design & Drafting to others – as I have already done so recently.
We contracted JC Design and Drafting to draw up plans for our bathroom extension in 2015. We were really pleased with the results. Jakub was a pleasure to work with and was happy to spend extra time to get the design exactly how we wanted it. The quality of the plan and accompanying illustrations ensured that the project was council approved with no hitches even though our house is heritage listed. The detail in the drawings also made it easy for the builder and other tradesmen to finish the extension without any complications or misunderstandings. We are very happy with the results and would recommend JC Design and Drafting without hesitation.
Lead Design Architects
Jacob was very honest with his time frame and delivered the work to a high standard. Honest and easy to work with, I would definitely recommend him.
Excellent service provided by Jakub at JC Design & Drafting.
He listened to exactly what I was after with my project, quick response times and hassle free service.
An added bonus was the virtual walk through of the project to give you an insight into how the property would function.
