When it comes to residential architecture, I say it’s not about style.

I prefer to use the word character.

The difference is that the character of a building or of a home, can be, just like as in people, individual, authentic and unique.

Style is about something that has been before and has been established by someone else.  The styles we know usually have some great graphic or image which is a typical to that period of time.

The character of your new or renovated home will be the result of many specific factors, and it should be of its time.

Character lets new work be a contemporary solution to suit today’s values, with references to the past.

So don’t get hung up on defining your style before you talk with an architect.  Otherwise you’ll likely be bogged down with words like Hamptons, Classic, Coastal, Contemporary, Minimalist, Mid Century Modern, Federation, Traditional, Art Deco, Arts and Crafts – all of which may just not be relevant and may be a distraction.

All MWa’s projects have a different character, as all have a different sense of place and sense of home.

We make our homes feel like they were always meant to be that way.  

If you like the sound of this, find out more on our website.

Or do it the old fashioned way and pick up the phone and talk to us on 0421 082 110.

No need to talk about style, just talk to us about what you need from your home and what you would like it to feel like.
