Home Renovation Design Solutions — Matakana Coast, Warkworth, Auckland
In addition to providing architectural services for new home builds we also have significant experience in redesigning homes to incorporate alterations.
A major alteration can completely transform a house, modernising an existing structure or extending living spaces. We have found though that people often don't appreciate that design costs for major renovations can sometimes seem higher than new builds due to the challenges alterations to an existing structure can present. With a new house the designer is starting from scratch and it can be quite a straight forward process. With an alteration the designer has to take into consideration the structure of the existing house, the style and materials. Occasionally unforeseen issues arise when construction starts that requires additional work including engineering to look at foundations, bracing or support beams and posts. Whatever the requirements this is all part of our service.
