We have been appointed by our clients as architects for their new two storey home in Matraville. The project involves reinterpretation of the traditional house on the quarter acre block within a conventional suburban residential block, with only the concrete swimming pool remaining from the original building on site. By the time Artechne joined the project team, the proposal has been approved under the CDC process and the detail design documentation has been substantially completed.

It is at this point that Artechne produced a detailed cost plan which assisted the client to better understand the required budget and to make the required outstanding design decisions. Throughout this process Angel Roumeliotis was very engaged, helpful and provided detailed information in a timely and professional manner. His skill and experience as architect as well as the builder was particularly helpful both to us and to the client in assessing various design alternatives and agreeing on the preferred way forward. This enabled the signing of the lump sum contract and the commencement of construction in late 2016.

This project is currently in construction and approaching lock-up. The built outcome is of a very good quality and it reflects Artechne’s high level of construction skill and experience and their detailed consideration of processes involved in executing each designed element as intended. Their efficient yet flexible management of the project is evidenced by their timely forward planning and handling of the site issues so that the client is able to make the remaining decisions, and even some late changes to design, without any negative effect on the program. Artechne’s attention to detail is also prevalent in their relations with the clients and sub-contractors which coupled with their appreciation for design quality and a sound work ethic helped to establish a concerted and rewarding team environment.
We are delighted to have partnered with Artechne to deliver this beautiful home to our clients and look forward to future opportunities where we can collaborate with Angel and his team again.
