Well, I am glad we shared our ideas first!
Because if we hadn’t, I think the architect would just have thought we had copied his!
We visited one of their latest projects – a renovation project that is currently up for sale. There were so many similarities with what we want to do, it was spooky. The bright modern interior inside a period shell, the open planning living that flows from room to room, the master bedroom that is separate from the guest bedrooms etc.
You can see the property here including interior photos and floor plans.
The property is around 2,200 sq ft so probably slightly smaller than our intended renovation. This fact alone has us wondering about whether the overall size of our renovation is too big. But it is still early days.
In the afternoon, we had a look at another property. Different location. New build, rather than renovation and a lot bigger. You can see more of this property here. Not really our sort of thing, but interesting from a design point of view, if nothing else.
