From the country to the coast for a sea change, a young family found an appropriate sized home in an idyllic location and moved straight in! But soon after discovered that the house layout was a complete disaster for their family lifestyle! We listened very carefully to the criteria of the family dynamics and we really had to wonder "what were they thinking??!!" The stress was so great that at one stage they wondered if they should simply sell and start over again! It was unjustifiable to demolish an 8-year-old house... but we did literally remove and relocate half the walls and services inside it! We presented several layout solutions that the home owners never thought possible. The clients now armed with an abundance of design options joked about how we had in fact made their decision making process all the more difficult!! The end result is one that has become so intrinsic in their lives that they find it hard to go way ... even on holidays!
