We are absolutely delighted by the lifestyle change that Dion’s redesign of our Woolloongabba workers cottage has achieved. As “empty nesters”, we purchased the property with the idea of downsizing, but being able to have our family and friends visit in a relaxed atmosphere. The 100+-year-old house had been well maintained and the kitchen and bathroom areas had been modernised, but the inherent design features of that style of house remained. The spaces were small, the living areas internal in the house, and cut off from air flow and light. The back of the property, which was climatically the best aspect, was inaccessible. The redesign changed all that and we now have all our living areas at the back of the house giving us access to cool breezes and lots of light. The worker’s cottage look remains as you enter but gradually and skillfully transitions to a more contemporary area built for today’s way of living.
In Dion, we found an architect who listened to what we were wanting to achieve and then developed a solution which works extremely well. He kept us well informed throughout the design process, was responsive to our queries, and was very skilled in briefing the builders on what we were wanting. We would not hesitate in recommending him to others to help achieve their lifestyle changes.
