Generous project budgets are not always critical to satisfying results. Our dedicated clients engaged us to evolve a stalled renovation, within the constraints of a circa 1877 protected heritage building in central Hobart, working with a previously approved application and dilapidated building fabric.

Determined to maintain our design objectives, we convinced the clients to restore unsympathetic external elements to their original form and to minimally reconfigure the internal space, creating more functional light-filled areas.

Restraint and careful deliberation over many iterations of the concept provide a result that surprised and delighted our clients and justified a patient approach.

A grand old lady is given a new lease on life.
