WHAT OUR CLIENT SAY ABOUT US
"I first worked with Tim on a major renovation of my home in Cottesloe. From the first meeting I felt he was able to “get” what I was looking for. This level of understanding as well as detailed questioning along the way really helped ensure the design came together with great style and within budget. He was also integral in tightly managing the builder to ensure the quality was first class, costs were kept under control and the entire project was pretty much on time. I regularly recommend Tim to anyone looking to build or renovate."
Director Scotford & Fennessy, Executive Search & Recruitment
"This contemporary home is located in the leafy south-eastern suburb of Glen Iris, Melbourne. Nestled within a streetscape of early century bungalows, the home comfortably takes the place of the previous weatherboard cottage, wrapping the slender new building form is the warmth of stained Silver Ash timber cladding. The stained is a rich, dark chocolate colour which visually grounds the house into the lush green landscaped gardens."
"Central to the design both spatially and visually, is the alfresco courtyard. As an external living area and light-well at the same time, the home wraps itself around the void on all levels and draws the outside in to extend the sense of space and blur defined zones of the interior/exterior. This sense is reinforced by the use of large, full height sliding glazed doors to both sides of the courtyard connecting the separate living areas..."
KALOORUP SHIPPING CONTAINER HOUSE - 'VILLAFIONA'
"I really feel that a building has to fit, not only into its surroundings but also to suit the nature of its owners. The owner of this property is a fairly handy guy with access to friends who had more specialised skills, as well as a whole lot of recycled materials. Things like reclaimed local Jarrah, double glazed window units, cladding etc. We wanted to put these resources and talents to good use so the palette of materials and building methodology evolved from what was immediately available."
"Valley Rd Residence sits at the top of a hill overlooking a valley full of established homes heavily camouflaged by a canopy of mature eucalyptus trees. Like so many coastal Perth homes with a western view, the site immediately challenges the design to take in the views while coping with the brilliant but penetrating West Australian afternoon summer sun."
EMMANUEL COMMUNITY HOUSE
"Emmanuel Community House sets a new benchmark for independent housing in Perth, providing a safe environment for people to live together and contribute to a common household. The Specialist Disability Accommodation provides a sense of home and sanctuary for its residents within a quality building that is sustainably designed, robust and low maintenance."
