Design Workshops

Focusing on Kitchen and Bathroom design, our design workshops facilitate a deeper understanding of these two key areas of your home. These design workshops step you through the methodology used by Natalie when working with clients, to ensure an outcome that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Please get in touch if you are interested in attending our next workshop.

Good Design Gives Back

As the director of Look Design Group I am passionate about ‘giving back,’ not because I can afford to give freely of my time, but rather because I have experienced adversity myself and know what it feels like to need a helping hand. I therefore feel morally obliged to offer assistance wherever possible on pro bono projects, particularly indigenous housing projects. My current pro bono project is for Deciding to Make a Difference, providing assistance with the design of a community dialysis building for the Jilkminggan NT community. Remote Aboriginal communities like Jilkminggan experience third world conditions without proper access to water, power and sanitation. Please get in touch if you are interested in supporting this worthwhile project.

Bathrooms and kitchens are substantial investments when building or renovating, but if designed well they will add much more than their equivalent value to your home’s resale value.

Testimonials

I engaged Natalie Andersen (Look Design) in March 2015 following a very poor experience with an Architect working on the design of my Renovation, which is an extensive rebuild of a two storey house in Balmoral with a spend of $2m. Natalie works at a pace and with an energy that has delivered to every milestone that was agreed at the start of the project.

We sought interior design assistance for our new build Lane Cove House. While we had a great experience with the building designer, we elected to branch out for interior advise. We found Natalie to be very professional, engaging and genuinely interested in our project. She took us out of our comfort zone in a few areas and we really appreciate the outcome. Design fees where well and truly covered by trade discounts obtained on the purchase of furniture and fittings. Its a no brainer.

I contracted Look Design Group, to provide a unique design for our house renovation in Clovelly. The project was a full renovation with only 2 walls left on the original house. I briefed Natalie McDonald (Director) on the scope we had in mind, which was then turned into reality with her incredible vision.

Generous with her time and knowledge, Natalie is the first to harness a creative challenge – the extensive renovation of our tiny terrace. With clever use of space and design, Natalie managed to accommodate our requirements whilst still complying with council development constraints. Her enthusiasm for design is contagious. Her friendly and professional approach refreshing. Why wouldn’t we recommend her services?”

We had the pleasure of working with Natalie throughout the renovation of our home. Being our first renovation it was overwhelming knowing how much had to be done and how many decisions needed to be made. Prior to commencement Natalie reviewed our plans and recommended a number of simple changes which have made all the difference to the end product.

In 2009 I constructed my home for the first time, a daunting experience given the anticipated $5 million dollar project cost. Faced with the dilemma of building my first home, with a Development Application about to expire and my builder chosen I had to act quickly. I couldn’t afford to use the original architect as house prices had slumped and I was put off by the dollars they were quoting.

With construction already underway on a recent townhouse development, my builder suggested consulting Natalie to identify more effective ways to use space within some of the functional areas. Having already had design input from the architect I was originally hesitant to incur additional cost and unsure that there would be any real benefit.
