Keswick Cres, Hamilton

This client was unsure of the value in investing with an architectural designer as opposed to working directly with a builder or building company. We advised them that we didn’t think they would get the attention to detail or the impact they wanted from one of the other options.

They had very specific requirements for their home but they also wanted something unique and appealing. It needed to be affordable, and we advised them that they really need to invest in the design process to achieve these goals.  If someone is charging nothing for designs then they are going to get low value or low quality designs, with very little thought or planning.

When we presented the client with our first concepts, their first response was ‘Wow!’. In fact we got three ‘Wow’s” in the first meeting - we achieved the impact required.

So the real message here is, “Invest in good design, no matter who you are working with!”  You do not get more for less when it comes to design.  It is the biggest opportunity to create value – value in your lifestyle and your asset.

Testimonials

I just want to say to those of you who worked on our home - what a great place it has turned into. Just the feelings of space and style it gives. After a month here we have not found anything that we do not like, or anything that we think should have been different. The spaciousness is wonderful, the suitability to the site is fantastic. 

Simply, it is a great piece of design work which has brought only positive comment from all of our once-sceptical neighbours.

“Congratulations on a very good set of working drawings – the best I’ve seen for a long time.  Clear, well presented and concise.”
