"We have been meaning for some time now to put in writing our appreciation and thanks for Dion’s creative but yet very practical architectural input to the renovations that we undertook at our home during the latter half of 2001. We continue to be amazed at the practicality of the design. We are so pleased with what has been achieved. Dion took an ordinary brick box and created a modern, contemporary styled home suited to the lifestyle we envisaged, namely, comfortable living and entertaining, both indoors and outdoors. We are grateful to Dion for that. In short, our experience with Dion Seminara as our architect and the subsequent activity of our renovations have been most enjoyable and successful, a situation which is not always the case, if one is to believe “conventional wisdom” and anecdotes about designing and building a house."
"Over the past two years we have been working with Dion Seminara to modernise our solid 1980′s brick home. The result is a modern open plan house that capitalises on a bright north-easterly outlook and is now a delight to live in. We were introduced to Dion as a result of inquiries at Australian Institute of Architects. After describing what we wanted, Dion led us through various stages of concept design and design development and eventually managed the building contract for us. We had some of our own ideas for improvement to the house, but Dion took the renovations way beyond out initial expectations to end up with the great result we now have. His experience and flair for this type of work meant that the fittings and fixtures complement the improvements he made to the overall house design through the tender process, his recommendations on builder selection and the contract negotiation process led to a quality product. We would recommend Dion to anyone wanting design and project management assistance to renovate and modernise their home. We would be pleased to provide further information or to discuss this with anyone interested in using Dion’s services."
"When we approached Dion, our scope was to open up the back of the house to make the area flow through from the inner living to the outside. Also in the process, we wanted to modernize the kitchen and as with all projects, we also extended the scope to include the main bathroom upstairs. What we have achieved is a very liveable area that flows with a modern workable kitchen. On Dion’s recommendation, we changed the orientation of the kitchen by extending into what was previously a walkway. I now have a study on the ground floor as recommended by Dion as my original study was upstairs away from the main living area and this new study is well utilized due to its location. We are very happy with the renovation as designed by dion seminara architecture."
