You have reached a change or pivotal point in your life. Perhaps you are expecting a baby, or your kids are going to university and moving out, and you need to make your existing home work better for you to accommodate changing circumstances. Your personal environment matters to you. You would like to improve it and enjoy a better quality of life, a healthier and more energy-efficient space.

We know that you have pressures and stress in your life. With so much going on you are not sure how you can deal with the hectic process of home improvement. It can be very emotionally involving. You are thinking how you are going to make this project work around your day-to-day life. You are concerned about making the right decisions and how you can swing them, financially.

We have successfully helped many clients who were facing the same situation you are in right now. That’s why we’ve developed unique planning steps in our process, and a flexible structure, to ensure that our clients are able to fit their project in with their busy lives.

Our practice focuses on guiding our clients through a positive, enjoyable, collaborative and relaxed process.

The things that matter

You could call these our core values, but they’re more than just a few abstract nouns to make us (and you) feel good. They’re ways of being and doing that guide our every decision and our every aspiration, whether we’re at our desks, knee-deep in builder’s dust, or talking intently with you about the tiniest of details.

Giving you a seat at the table
From the very first glimmer of a design to you feeling right at home in your new space, it’s a conversation. We design with you — not for you. You’re an integral part of the design team. (You’re not just coming along for the ride. And there’ll be homework…)

Designing around you
Great design doesn’t come out of a box. It’s shaped by you and for you. Being attentive to what you say (and what you don’t say) is our first step. Then it’s about designing thoughtfully and rigorously, always with one eye firmly on the timeline and the costs.

Making you feel great
We all want to breathe easily, hear the birds sing, experience the seasons. When we’re connected to nature, we feel calmer. So, even in a city street, we look for ways to bring nature in. That’s a win-win for you and for nature.

We can start discussing your project with you in two different ways:

We can begin with a single consultation in our Design Surgery (the proceeds of which go to charity) to determine how we can help you and if we are a good fit.

Or, there’s the option of a more involved Feasibility Study for your project, where we will meet and visit your property, and produce some simple design ideas that can help you make a constructive decision on how to proceed.
