Alterations and Additions to Existing Residence, West Brunswick, VIC
“We could not have been more pleased with the end result of our renovation designed by Cathi Colla Architects. The renovation design achieved all our goals within our limited budget, giving us greater indoor space, bringing much more light into our home and creating spacious outdoor living area.
The renovation has significantly increased the potential sale value of our home by much more than it cost us (to build).
Cathi introduced us to an excellent builder who has was easy to work with and managed the project exactly according to the estimated time line.
We have no hesitation in recommending Cathi Colla Architects to others planning to either build or renovate their homes

“It was during construction that their (Cathi Colla Architects) value shone through for me.
I remember the first site meeting. They were asking questions that I would never have dreamed of asking at the time. They were able to nip a couple of issues in the bud – issues that would have become crises had they not been worked through early.
They dealt with the issues in a calm and constructive manner with the builder.”

“Thank you for your professionalism, dedication, decisiveness and committed nature to which you conducted your role as a superintendant on this project.
Having now completed a few projects it is becoming easier to recognise the architects who can combine their attention to detail, creativeness and architectural style with a practical approach to building.
I would most definitely be happy to work with you again in the future..”

“This project displays a thorough understanding of the aesthetic and functional subtleties of residential space and skilfully revitalises this prosaic mid century suburban house.
It manipulates outlook, function and circulation to create a sophisticated contemporary dwelling.”

I would like to personally thank Cathi Colla for her involvement and her assertive point of view in endeavouring to achieve the results of which she had asked and we would expect. She was at all times courteous and a pleasure with whom to work.”
