Words from our client
I would like to start by stating my wife and I are extremely happy with our new house!
The conversion of our 2 bedroom 1950’s bungalow to a modern 4 bedroom house has been an enjoyable journey that completed on time, on budget and with results that far exceeded our expectations. The success of this undertaking is due to the vision, professionalism and execution that Martin brought to the process.
We initially engaged Martin based on his portfolio that emphasised an elegant and simple style. Upon meeting him for the first time, we were impressed by not only his professionalism but also his keen interest in understanding our living requirements and his ability to quickly provide ideas and concepts on how to achieve these objectives.
Once Martin quickly arrived at a concept, we had a number of very productive meetings in which Martin iterated over his designs with us. He made ongoing suggestions, listened to our feedback and provided some great ideas on how to design a house with 2 small children in mind, how to maximise natural light and how to realise an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
We used Martin to prepare submissions for council and it was during this phase that Martin’s deep knowledge of the building and council process came to the forefront as he patiently navigated all the procedural waters. Even though there were a number of complicated elements to our design, Martin was able to use his expertise to ensure we were compliant on all accounts and the process moved incredibly smoothly under his guidance.
We ended up engaging the builders recommended by Martin (a fantastic team!) and, during the build, Martin remained close and regularly provided advice as building progressed.
The end result is a fantastic house that the family loves. My wife and I are regularly complemented on how it turned out and how lucky we are to have had such smooth journey. For anyone looking to renovate, I would not hesitate to recommend Martin.
