Francis Street - Manly
We would be more than happy to recommend Adam's Architectural flair to anyone.
We had a very dark, cold 1930's house in Manly that really was past its used by date, was poorly orientated and uncomfortable to live in. We approached Adam to design a house that would be environmentally friendly, would capture the wonderful north east breeze that we get being on a hill and re-orientate the house so that we could capture the northerly sun and also enjoy the morning sun in our living areas.
Adam came up with a wonderful design that provided all that we were wanting and now that we have lived in the house through all 4 seasons can truly appreciate the value of a proper design.
In summer the house is nice and cool from the north east breeze and the angle of the overhanging roof in our living area keeps the sun out. In winter when the sun is lower it shines right through the house and warms it up very quickly.
Not only is the house extremely comfortable to live in we have also seen the benefit of a much reduced electricity bill as we don't have to have our lights on all the time and heating on as much in winter. The hidden 6,000 litre water tanks are also fantastic.
The design process was most enjoyable and was always done over a bottle of red, which probably helped. We found Adam very good to deal with and was able to interpret our needs well and come up with some excellent ideas that only a good architect could.
We certainly now see the benefits of an architect designed house and would have no hesitation to use Adam again.
