    “A Second Touch of Genius.

    After leaving the Kurrajong property brilliantly designed by Helen, we had a sea change to Lennox Head.  We purchased a ‘knock down’ house on a beautiful block overlooking the  water.  So it was over to Helen to come up with another design masterpiece!

    She had to work around very strict council restrictions and come up with a design that also satisfied our long list of requirements, particularly relating to maximising water views from all levels and to build a duplex !

    As always, Helen is fantastic at integrating ideas, hers and ours.

    The design process constantly evolved, and after much debate, the use of copper on the roof became reality, followed by some panelling.  A perfect coastal material and the appearance is stunning.

    Suspended cantilevered concrete slabs, polished and endless as they flow into decks, with cornerless doors to give uninterrupted views.  Her space management was exceptional to comply with very stringent constraints.

    Once again Helen has created a dream home for us, hopefully the second will be it !!

    We would recommend the team at 3de, for Warwick can’t be forgotten, to help realise your building dreams”.

    “We contacted Helen to assist us in designing a new home for our family in Kurrajong.  After meeting Helen, we were very confident that she would design the perfect home for us – and she did not disappoint!  Helen considered all of our requirements and personal style and also made suggestions which have only improved upon our initial brief.  Helen has also taken into account the environmental impact of our home, but has incorporated this in a commercial and cost effective manner.  She applies both practicality and a beautiful aesthetic to her design and we would have no hesitation in recommending her”.
    … and just recently we shared a celebratory drink with P and A who said:
    ”This project was a rollercoaster of highs and lows.  Dealing with Helen in the planning phase was fun and very exciting.  Helen put a lot of time and effort into understanding what sort of home we wanted and needed as this would be our forever home.  As owner builders, building was a challenge but thankfully we have now moved in and it is great.  The house is a really lovely space to be in and the time spent in the planning stage was well worth it.”…   “We absolutely love living here, it’s such a pleasure to live in a home which responds to the changing seasons and it really is comfortable all the time!”
