What our clients say
I have had the pleasure of working with Story Design on a number of small and complex residential projects in multiple Councils. I am continually impressed by the attention to detail, follow through of the projects and ability to balance the clients desires including building design and budget. Story Design are well equipped with deal-ing with challenging project realities such as site gradients and tricky council controls. They formulate strategies and opportunities based on challenging site constraints whilst maintaining aesthetic design. On top of that, they are a pleasure to deal with, always pleasant and professional. I give them my highest recommendation.
