“When homes are designed, the position of windows should look balanced with the exterior of the building. I often need to address the windows so they work from the interior perspective.”
“Storage is often overlooked or poorly situated – linen cupboard needs to be near bedroom/bathroom, not along the hallway.”
“When installing a shower or tiling a bathroom, it is important to know what is in behind the wall to ensure there are no water leaks further down the track.”
“The scale of kitchen/family living areas need to be generous as so much living is done within these spaces, and less in formal dining rooms and lounges.”
“Window treatments need to accommodate view, privacy, indoor/outdoor transition and thermal control.”
“When involved in a house renovation I often move or remove a wall to improve the flow and add usable space”.
“I have been told that I am a visionary designer as I can look at a building and think outside the square, to come up with a great solution, and estimate what it is likely to cost.”
“I work well with the builder and sub-trades on site, and sometimes see a more cost-effective way of doing something during a project.”
