Oliver had a very good understanding of the lifestyle we were attempting to achieve with our renovation and the budgetary constraints of the project.  He listened carefully to our ideas and, importantly, also challenged us to consider alternatives.  He had great respect for the integrity of our existing Queenslander (C. 1920s) and developed plans that paid tribute to the original character features of the home whilst incorporating new, contemporary spaces that seamlessly blend modern with old.  He is a good communicator and made the design and construction process quite seamless.  We are thrilled with the final outcome.
