THE DESIGNFIRE were recommended to us via work and we loved their way of just listening to what we wanted, not forcing anything on us and were always at the end of the phone when we needed to talk to them.
We had an initial concept plan that we had to follow due to the council already having approved things, but we just were not happy with it. It’s a 330m2 site and the space wasn’t utilised properly at all. We approached THE DESIGNFIRE and wow Louie really opened the whole place up. He was very clever in making small things that made the house appear to be bigger. He raised the height of ceilings going into the gable roof and now our house seems so much bigger. He removed walls where they were not needed and just opened up the whole space to give us a free-flowing area. Louie also suggested moving the whole house forward by a meter to give us more garden space at the back for the kids. They size of all windows and ranch sliders were also increased to give us more light and creating the illusion of a bigger house. The cedar front, it’s an amazing feature and we love it. The higher ceilings and great use of space. We would have loved to have more cedar going down the sides of the house like Louie had initially suggested but we couldn’t afford it at the time to just stuck to the front You guys really listened and are very on trend with what’s going on in the world of architecture. Very flexible and nice to deal with. You were listening and helping us get the best house we could have. When I compare it to other similar houses on our street, that had the same concept plan, I’m so so so happy we used THE DESIGNFIRE and changed it all around. We even swapped the whole house around by having the master bedroom in the front upstairs so we could maximise the view of the boats and golf club. Thanks THE DESIGNFIREwe love our house.
