Coogera Street ViewRussell was tasked with designing for us a highly innovative, contemporary coastal residence at Dundowran Beach in Hervey Bay. We also gave Russell complete architectural freedom and tried not to constrain his creativity by meddling! What we unleashed can only be described as “creative genius”. Russell came back with a stunning design that far exceeded our expectations and added considerable value to the finished project. We would highly recommend Russell to anyone looking for a truly exceptional design at a very reasonable price.

Russell impressed me with his knowledge of good design principles and helpful advice and his prompt professional service when building a home this year. We have just engaged his services to build a second home.
