Woolloomooloo – 02
The upstairs bedroom of this 2 storey penthouse apartment captured sweeping views over the finger wharf to the city and harbour bridge but failed to reach its full potential.
Brief Project Description
Utilising existing roof space, the renovation changed a standard double bedroom into a luxurious generously proportioned master retreat with the addition of his and hers walk-in robes, featuring high quality custom designed joinery and a large contemporary open plan en-suite.
This along with a refurbished private outdoor terrace transformed the simple upstairs level into a stylish urban sanctuary.
Brian came with a recommendation from our neighbour who was renovating at the same time, and from our first meeting we really felt we were in safe hands.
Brian managed our expectations very well from the outset, and we relied heavily on his guidance to navigate the complex rules when renovating within Sydney city council area, both as part of a strata complex and within a heritage area.
Brian challenged our thinking when it came to the design, and I'm so glad he did!! The window he added in the en-suite, which I was very unsure about, is now my favourite feature!! Brian even went as far as designing our custom joinery for our walk-in wardrobes, as he knew the joiner wasn't delivering on my vision.
Brian went completely over and above when it came to finally getting our build approved by the project certifiers, as our builder failed on several attempts to complete the required paperwork. Brian stepped in and got it all sorted within a matter of days, when it had already taken our builder months to submit.
I couldn’t recommend Brian highly enough. As well as being extremely professional he is just a lovely guy, he truly cares about his work and his clients, and it shines through in all that he does. His commitment to getting the job done means he consistently delivered well beyond what we would normally expect from any architectural service. We will absolutely be using him again the next time we build. - Sam and Bianca.
