Mosman Village Renovation 2021

The original home was a single level 3 bedroom detached dwelling on a compact 280m2 site, which was purchased as an investment property by expats residing in Singapore. The sudden onset of covid changed the intended use of the property from an executive rental into a ‘forever’ family home, for the owners to reconnect with their Australian family. Due to the owners inability to travel for the duration of the construction program, Look was heavily involved with the projects’ delivery, with the owners relocating just before Christmas 2021 and finally being able to physically experience their ‘forever’ home for themselves.

Residential Design

Building or Renovating with the assistance of a suitably qualified Architect will ensure your renovation will be a very rewarding and exciting experience. Look’s Design Principal Natalie Andersen holds a Bachelor of Interior Architecture in addition to a Master of Architecture. Under her direction, Look can provide you with a comprehensive suite of services that have been tailored over the past 25+ years to assist astute homeowners with their renovation and building projects.

There are many ways in which Look can assist you with your project, beginning with ensuring you receive the necessary advice, construction drawings, documentation and all necessary Building Approvals prior to commencing your renovation project. Even if you do not require a Building Approval, good construction drawings and documentation will assist you to cost effectively materialise your desired inclusions. If either you or your trade professional must guess how important aspects of your renovation are to be constructed, then needless frustration, time delays and cost overruns will be the result, rather than the rewarding and exciting experience you had hoped for.

Look’s carefully considered design drawings and documentation will ensure you get the look you want, rather than your builder or trade professional’s interpretation. So if you are inspired to make changes to your home and would like a Design Fee Proposal for your project, simply call 0438 699 949 or email Natalie at to discuss your needs.
