case study: 'On Wirega' title


  • To transform this little two bedroom cottage into a family home keeping as much of the existing structure as possible.
  • Additional rooms to be east or north east facing to capture sun. To achieve this a bridge effect would have to be incorporated.
  • Create a house with 2 living areas, separate kitchen, dining, 4 bedrooms including master suite with office nook, powder room and separate bathroom. Possibly separating adult and children areas.
  • Integrated landscape areas, maximizing the view of the existing large trees.
  • To create a property that naturally flows from the interior to the exterior.



"Design is the key to the success of any project, albeit small or large. Without it, the journey to completion can be costly and stressful for clients.

I first became aware of Richard and Kevin’s immense talent upon entering a home they had renovated. Resurrected would be a better description of what they achieved. I also realized at this point the magazine article I had kept of my favorite house was another one of their properties. It was brought to my attention just how many design awards this team has received whilst working for Majestic Pools and Landscapes. Their awards covered two entire walls in the home I inspected. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!

I followed their careers for five years and subsequently contracted them to design a concept for my property 'on Wirega1...'.

What an incredible transformation! What a very practical use of materials!

They have an ability to work with everyone. Nothing is too much trouble. Transitioning between client and builder’s needs is a remarkable skill that very few designers have mastered. They are experts at it!!

I then contracted them to design a concept for my next property 'on Wirega 2...'. They have an innate ability to visualize what mere mortals cannot. The heart and passion that they deliver to a project is very unique and I have found them to be genuine and caring in their approach. They are extremely respectful of their clients’ needs and are designers who listen to their clients and deliver helpful and practical advice at all times. Working to budget is paramount to them and extremely important to me. A rarity in this day and age.

'on Wirega 2...' is testament to the incredible talent of this extraordinary team. I thank them you with all of my heart.

They give life to ordinary homes and heart to ordinary people."
