Hill Street - Queenscliff
We approached Adam after speaking to a number of builders about a D&C build for our new home. We had a good idea of the floor plan, but needed something to give our property real street presence against the 2 stunning homes that were constructed on either side. It became clear to us that an architect was best placed to help.
Adam's extensive and diverse portfolio of projects was key for us when engaging All Australian Architecture. While we had always admired the clean lines and styling of the Hay House, round the corner from our current location, the fact that each project he has undertaken differed in style told us that Adam could work in a flexible manner to accommodate our thoughts to create a space and design that reflected us and maximised the potential of the site.
While we had a well thought out concept for our floor plan, Adam was able to guide us on where we could extract greater potential in the design and layout, as well as maximising energy efficiencies throughout the building. The modelling process helped flesh out what worked in terms of the layout and enabled us to make changes to the design in an quick and efficient manner. However the facade he conceptualised for us was truly outstanding. His vision has created something unique and a building that stands out, yet remains sympathetic to the rest of the street.
His advice and guidance on the way thought the design process with respect to local council issues, especially around the early engagement of consultants for key areas such as storm water, was invaluable and saved us $000s from our build costs and ensured a smooth run through the DA process. We do not think our turnaround time would have been as speedy (2 months) if was not for the detailed work Adam and the team put in to our submission pack.
We are thrilled with the final design outcome and look forward to getting construction under way. We would be more than comfortable recommending Adam and the team to anyone looking to maximise the potential of their site with a unique and well thought out design.
