new home ... turns heads.
We were building a new house in a WA country town a long way from where we live. We had initially selected a local builder who was highly recommended. Our main requirement was to bring our house design, which we had drawn at 265m²., in at around 200m². The builder’s in-house design team struggled to reduce the area. After several months, it was down to 245m² but there was still poor use of space and serious design issues. After eleven months and about ten versions of our floor plan, we were in despair. We needed help!
After Googling and choosing Design Synergy, we met Garreth and Jo. We took our original floor plan sketchings and our extensive list of what our new house should have in it and how we would like it to look. Jo did a sensational job re-designing the back half of our house, ensuring all our furniture would fit and giving us lots of storage which was also high on our list. They ensured the sun orientation was correct. It took five weeks and four floor plans for our house to come in at 200m². What a relief! Now we had the basics fixed, we could move forward. We had given Garreth several house pictures from magazines and newspapers. He then created a very pretty facade for us – the house turns heads!
Garreth and Jo then helped us fine-tune our ideas, listening to our many requests (minimal glass, wall niches, an internal window, a ceiling dome, coffered ceiling to activity, a door across the passage to separate living from sleeping etc). They suggested low energy lighting and asked questions in order for us to make the best decisions. They also designed the electrical plan. Through their contacts, they found a local builder who does not advertise and specialises in one-offs and liaised with him on our behalf over a few issues.
Five months from the initial telephone call we signed off the working drawing they produced! What a difference – the way it should be. We are very happy with our beautiful, practical family home. We are incredibly grateful to Design Synergy for helping us bring our ideas to fruition in a professional, timely manner.
