Hear what some of our clients have to say
We used Peter not only to design our home but to also supervise the construction work carried out by the builders. Prior to that, however, he accompanied us, at no cost, to several properties we were considering purchasing and provided us with valuable advice on whether or not the property was suitable for the plans we had in mind. The design Peter ultimately submitted to us was excellent – it reflected what we wanted and was both tasteful and refined.
The ultimate product of Peter’s hard work is a home that we are delighted to arrive at each and every day.
Peter handled the renovation and extension of my house from concept to completion. The project started when he accompanied me looking at houses to buy. Peter helped me select a nondescript house which with his skills and expertise had the potential to be light and bright and a great home to live in. Peter’s design fulfilled that vision and I now live in a home which also has a “wow” factor.
Visitors regularly comment favourably on my home and the architectural features which Peter incorporated into the design.
Peter Hill helped me design my home in Balmain. Leichhardt Council had difficult requirements for us to meet. Peter was flexible and worked hard to align my expectations with that of Council. The end result is a lovely building that not only suits my requirements but also has lasting visual appeal.
I am particularly happy with the street presence and general feeling of light and spaciousness from within the building.
Peter demonstrated meticulous attention to detail and outstanding conceptual ability when constructing drawings for our proposed renovation. Peter ensured that the entire council approval process was speedy and stress-free. When showing Peter’s drawings to prospective builders and to council staff we have received numerous positive comments about how thorough and detailed Peter’s drawings are.
We would highly recommend Peter to prospective clients who are after an individualised detailed approach to designing their ideal home.
Peter was an integral partner in building our new home. Despite challenging design constraints, he worked patiently and collaboratively with us to design a liveable, practical and beautiful space. He listened to all our needs and was always able to suggest improvements or alternate designs so that we always felt we had a range of options to choose from. The new house looks fantastic and our friends (and even some passers-by) have complimented us on how it has improved the street, and our guests have all told us how much they love the space inside. When we build our next house Peter will be the first person we call.
We met Peter in March 2010 when we asked him to draw up plans for additions and alterations for our Heritage Listed single storey terrace in Pyrmont, organise Surveyors and Engineers and submit plans to the Sydney City Council for D.A. Approval. Peter drew up four options and we chose the open we liked best. Thanks to Peter’s diligence with the Planning Department at the Sydney City Council the D.A. was approved in June without any alterations being called for by Council. He then submitted the Construction Certificate which was also approved and all on budget.
Unfortunately we had a problem with our original builder who we had chosen without consulting Peter. This delayed our project by nearly a year and certainly made us more aware of the necessity of having and taking professional advice. We contacted Peter again who agreed to take control of our work. He called tenders and negotiated with the builder he felt was best for our project.
We cannot speak highly enough of Peter’s professionalism and commitment to us and our house. We were not living in Sydney during this entire operation and he was always available by phone and email keeping us up to date with all stages and authorising progress payments to the builder. The transformation of our home is unbelievable. We both can honestly describe the end result as ‘gorgeous’. We would be proud to recommend Peter to any prospective client.
We employed Hill Architects for an extension and renovation to our Forest Lodge terrace. This entailed getting a difficult Development Application through Glebe Council [City of Sydney]. All credit to Peter as after an initial rejection by Council, and objection by our neighbours, he was able to persuade Council to reconsider and approve our development. Now we are able to go forward and start plans for the new building.
