Nestled in the suburb of Newport is this lovely sandstone cottage needing a more modern facelift. A simple palette of sandstone, recycled timber and corten steel work well with the existing native garden and client’s steel artwork.
This project is almost completed and has been a great collaboration and input by the client, interior designer, architect and builder.
The earthy tones reflect the clients original vision and artistic profession.
McMahon's Point House
Construction starting in September 2018 !
We have used Jane as our Architect for the renovation of our semi. Jane has worked with us from the initial stages of scoping the project to preparing full drawings for council for a DA and preparing drawings for our builder.
Jane is very easy to work with, takes our ideas and suggestions and returns with a design which far exceeds our initial ideas. Jane understands what we need out of the renovation. Jane has always been easy to communicate with.
Ash and Ellie, McMahons Point
We are designing a new external stair for nine heritage apartments in Darlinghurst. The stair will be made from steel and timber and will give these wonderful terraces a new space to step out to from their back doors.
Palm Beach House
Under Construction this 1950's cottage with an amazing view of Whale Beach has had a modern face lift. The Ground floor plan was updated with open plan living to enjoy the view. A second storey was added with a traditional pitched roof with attic style windows to nestle into the cliff edge. The interiors are classic neutral and inspired by the beach.
Duffy's Forest House
A 60’s house with great bones, has had a major refurbishment. Large verandahs take advantage of the beautiful bush setting. Working with Interior designer and owner Danni Murray to help her vision become real with Reliant builder’s talented tradesmen has been a labour of love. Danni’s style is rich and eclectic and so much fun to be involved in. My role has really been secondary but has been very rewarding .My favourite room is the boot room still under construction.
