This house renovation project has been a huge success with our family. Tony's innovative ideas have helped our house work better for our family. He listened to our requirements and translated them into a modern yet functional design with the flow of the house much improved and with a contemporary look. His understanding of construction also helped us remain within budget and he had an excellent relationship with our builder. We would definitely use Karsten Architectural Design again.
