Dion Seminara completed a major renovation design for our home in Hawthorne, co-ordinating work from design concept, through to the contract documentation stage. We worked with Dion for almost twelve months on this project.
We originally chose Dion because of the design work he had done on several houses in our local area, including his own. We felt they were outstanding, that he had created a beautiful synergy between the traditional Queensland and a more modern approach, which still took advantage of Queensland conditions.
We had originally been against using an architect, mainly because of the cost involved. However, after discussing our project with a range of other building professionals, like project home companies and builders using their own draftspeople, we realised that Dion was the only person who had the creativity to make our house look the way we wanted it to and that was worth the expense.
At the end of the project, we are confident that our decision to engage Dion was the right one. He is a good listener, and quickly understood the way in which our renovation needed to reflect our lifestyle. He has come up with a design with which we are delighted. It is creative, but it is also extremely functional. We feel it is also as economical as it could be. Dion has used his own building experience to advise us on the most cost-effective choices at every point.
Dion is a meticulous and totally professional person to work with. He is always prompt, and always does what he promises to do. We absolutely trust his design skills, his experience and his dedication to his work.
We are very happy to discuss Dion’s work with any potential clients in the future.
