Kirsten's design of our new house was not only aesthetically pleasing but totally practical too. She carefully considered all of our requirements and clearly understood what we ‘liked’ and ‘disliked.’ Working with her to create our dream home was great fun and a true collaboration. The result of her clever design is a beautiful home beyond our imagination. We highly recommend Kirsten and would definitely use Eco Edge if we were to build/renovate again in the future.
From our first meeting with Kirsten we knew she clearly understood our brief and budget. The process of working through from this initial brief to our final plans for construction was seamless with Kirsten being able to readily work with us and understand and design our requirements. She met all the timelines set for us and made herself available with meeting times to suit our lifestyle. Kirsten's professionalism was evident throughout her time working with us and providing us with well thought through options.
We are more than delighted to share our experience of using Eco Edge Architecture, principally Kirsten Johnstone. The extent and depth of detail in Kirsten's working drawings meant that the actual build process, for an architecturally designed home, was seamless and resulted in minimal involvement / input from us during the build phase. This meant no surprise cost blow outs. We are thrilled with the end product of our beautiful home. We have no hesitation in recommending Kirsten or Eco Edge Architecture and any of the services they provide.
Kirsten is an excellent communicator and more importantly an excellent listener who takes the time to get to know her clients and get an understanding of what they are looking for in their home. She listened to our thoughts and ideas and then combined them with her own thoughts and expertise giving us an end result that we LOVE. She was professional and timely throughout and readily available. She is a talented architect who is also a pleasure to work with - I can not recommend her highly enough!
They say that renovations are on the list of some the most stressful things people can experience in their lives. Well, they obviously haven't met Kirsten Johnstone. From the get-go she is reliable, professional and interested. And her talent speaks for itself. Not only can she perfectly translate your ideas and desires into cohesive plans, but she is able to see the big picture - suggesting and encouraging alternate ideas, where necessary. I would highly recommend Eco Edge Architects.
Kirsten was very professional, friendly, completed everything in a timely manner and got back to me quickly if she needed any input so that things could keep moving quickly. She's a really lovely person and has great taste too! Can't recommend her highly enough!
The result is outstanding. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with the result. Kirsten herself is wonderfully creative, very collaborative and a genuinely nice person to work with. When we do our next home (which we will build from scratch), we fully intend to get Kirsten to design it. And this time, we'll probably just tell her to amaze us.
Kirsten clearly comes with a lot of experience and provided professional advice, yet we felt that she listened carefully to our brief and our own ideas too. We would warmly recommend Kirsten to anyone about to commence a similar project and we would not hesitate to engage her again should we embark on something like this in the future.
