This extensive apartment renovation came about when my clients decided to downsize from their house in the Wairarapa and move to the city to be closer to the action and the various cultural treats that Wellington offers. They have had this apartment for 15 years so it was ready for a change. The initial brief was one of a basic tidying up of the apartment. However, as the design process developed, it soon became an extensive renovation with structural work, a full remodel and refurbishment. We completed the building work in six weeks and finished off with a special 'reveal' to the delighted clients who had been away for the duration of the project.
