Having owned these heritage listed terrace houses for a long time, I have wanted to renovate them ever since. After receiving unsatisfactory ideas from other architects I commissioned REFRESH*, who came up with a very creative solution for converting the dilapidated residences into offices. Additionally they provided a fantastic scheme for the next stage, which allows for three (3) additional 4 level freehold townhouses facing the rear lane. With a heritage restriction and a very tight site, I was amazed how creatively they fit everything within the envelope. Clever design and project management skills were very influential for achieving a development approval with fantastic yield on this complicated site.
Completing these offices in stage one of the project, Corinne and Erhard were always there to guide me through the elaborate process. They successfully managed heritage restrictions and fire safety requirements, often through unconventional performance solutions. I can strongly recommend the REFRESH* team and continue to engage them on my other projects I am currently working on.
