Justine obtained her Bachelor of Architecture with first class honours from the University of Cape Town in 1999. Since graduating she has worked for practices in South Africa, London and Australia. Most notably, Justine worked as an Associate for 10 years at leading Sydney design practice, Brian Meyerson Architects (now known as MHN Design Union). Justine led the design and managed the construction of high-end residential homes and interiors in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. While at Brian Myerson Architects, Justine also led the design of a number of apartment projects and commercial interiors.
After the birth of her 2 children, Justine’s design vision crystallised in the formation of Justine Reef Architecture & Interiors in 2012, enabling her to pursue her individual architectural journey. This independence has enabled Justine to develop and strengthen her personal design aesthetic and relationships with her clients, which she believes is crucial to the success of any project. In the process, Justine has managed to create beautiful Sydney homes and unique spaces in which to live. For Justine, the most rewarding part of her job is to exceed her client’s expectations of how a well-designed home can enhance one’s living experience.
Dear Justine. What a star! You have been terrific to work with on our project.
We have enjoyed every moment of your involvement with us on this project. We wish you many years of success in your career ahead. Thanks so much for the many hours you have put in to make our home what it is today.
It was evident throughout my involvement with Justine that she is an enthusiastic architect who loves the process of design and construction.
We cannot begin to thank-you enough for making it such a wonderful experience and creating such a beautiful home. We couldn’t have done it without you. Looking forward to another one down the track.
Dear Justine, thanks for all your hard work for us and for always going above and beyond!
