Brief: Complete interior design and project management of a cosmetic and structural renovation of an original 1950s two-bedroom apartment.
Design services: New kitchen, internal laundry and bathroom design including selection of all colours, fittings and finishes. Selection of timber flooring, tiles, carpet, paint colour, light fittings and accessories.
Space planning: Removal of part of the wall between the kitchen and living area to open up the space; opening up a closed doorway from the kitchen to the main entrance; kitchen and bathroom storage and reconfiguring built-in wardrobes.
Project management: Managing all trades and all aspects of the renovation including the Complying Development Certificate for the removal of the structural wall as well significant flooring, electrical and plumbing changes.
Being able to make a space your home is one of the most special things you can do. Having a brilliant designer and project manager like Luisa on board to manage the whole renovation made the process so much easier and more enjoyable for us. We absolutely could not have done it without her. She understood and delivered on our brief to completely transform a very outdated apartment into a modern home with a clean, neutral, minimalist look so that we could add colour and personality with our furniture and artwork. Crucial to the brief was making the most of the space and natural light, which included removing the majority of a wall to open up the kitchen to become an open plan living space. The layout of the bathroom was also completely reworked to make a small room feel more spacious. Creative storage solutions were included and we’re really happy with the quality finishes and fixtures chosen. Every surface was upgraded! Not only do we love where we live but we also got a great return on our investment.
