From the age of five, Broadway Homes Senior Designer Alexandra Sideris knew she wanted to be an architect and design projects from the ground up.
“I used to go to building sites with my father, who was a roof carpenter, which piqued my interest from a young age,” she said. “As a child of Greek migrants, it was an unusual choice back then but I was very lucky to have parents who were very supportive of my decision.”
Having graduated from Curtin University with a bachelor’s degree in architecture, Ms Sideris got straight to work at various architecture firms and building companies.
“While I was at university I would work at architects’ offices during summer, so I was lucky enough to have a foot in the door and I could go directly into my field,” she said.
Beginning her Broadway Homes journey three-and-a-half years ago as a senior designer and head of the design department, Ms Sideris supervised and supported other design staff at the company.
“With my background in architecture, I was brought to the team to ensure continued growth and innovation in our designs, and to create an experience that would continue to exceed client expectations,” Ms Sideris said.
As a senior designer, Ms Sideris loves the opportunity to start with a blank canvas and create a beautiful home, taking into account the individual needs of each client and converting their dreams and visions into a functional reality.
“It still excites me to come in each day to produce something from nothing but an idea and get to watch it come to life,” she said.
“I design all of our clients’ individual custom homes, from initial briefs and meetings with clients, through to planning approval and everything else in between.
“I am involved in creating concepts for new display homes, which is an exciting way to incorporate new styles and trends into our designs.
“As a team we work with the client’s overall budget and goals to produce quality-built homes and place a lot of emphasis on the overall client experience to make it the most personalised and enjoyable journey possible.”
Looking to the future, Ms Sideris is excited to continue working and growing with the team at Broadway Homes.
“We’ve developed a really great culture here for innovation and growth, so I see myself being able to continue for many years to come as the landscape of building changes and grows in Western Australia,” she said.
“We are looking more into evolving the environmental aspects of building to ensure we stay ahead of the curve and stay innovative, with style and quality remaining at the forefront.”
