Traditional! For this house in the heart of Willoughby, the clients wanted ”a renovation that does not look like a renovation”. To explain, the existing house is just beautiful and has some timeless and original architectural language which the clients wanted to honour and maintain when expanding their existing home. The construction were finished on November 2013, on time and in budget.
We engaged Andrea to assist us to expand our federation cottage into a spacious family home. Andrea listened to what we wanted, provided clever ideas to improve our design and worked with us to achieve our vision. Andrea guided us through the design, DA, tender and build phases in a professional manner, providing that cruitial single interface between us and the range of people who were required to bring it all to being. His personal commitment to us achieving our objectives meant we could concentrate on our jobs while he did his. We are now moving into a fantastic home which has been built without compromise and within budget but without the stress so many people warned us would be inevitable in a home renovation.
