Having decided on a general style of home that we wanted to build (i.e. contemporary Brazilian influence with an emphasis on open spaces and simple robust materials – concrete, timber, stone and tile) we quickly identified Shaun from his previous work as being closest to what we were looking for among local Queensland architects. From initial point of contact, it was obvious he quickly appreciated the style of house we were after, and how it could work within the confines of our vacant plot of waterfront land.
From that point forward the process with the SLa team went remarkably smoothly, particularly as were based overseas during the planning and construction process and only had limited opportunities to meet in person with Shaun and Jen before we commenced construction. Shaun and the SLa team paid particular emphasis on ensuring effective communication with us during all the stages of a complicated build, and we are simply amazed at how well our home has turned out – it’s beautiful, meets all of our requirements, and is a joy to live in.
