We bought a pretty standard bungalow in 2001. At the time we paid no attention to important factors such as natural light sources , the flow of rooms or there intended usage, we simply wanted a house to sleep in! Some years later we started our family and quickly discovered like so many , that our main living space was not compatible for our needs, insofar that the house seemed to suffocate us. We were faced with a major decision to sell and build, or renovate.
Decision made and an architect secured, we began the journey. We choose to go with an amazing architect from Allan Curran Architects. Throughout the project, John worked closely with us to ensure our needs were discussed, challenged and built into the plans. Expectations were clear with regards to budgets, lead times and next steps. The process was stress free and I can’t recommend John and his team enough.
We moved out of the house at the end of June 2016 and we moved home in September 2016. I call it home now, because I can honestly say that I love my home. It has captured me and provokes positive energies in my family. Our kitchen is flooded in natural light, our once modest garden is now a focal point for us. We have spent and will continue to spend early mornings and late evenings appreciating the tranquility it gives us, our extended families and friends.
