“I think there is a profound and enduring beauty in simplicity; in clarity, in efficiency. True simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter and ornamentation. It’s about bringing order to complexity.” - Jony Ive
This Fairfield home, like so many others, had a dated kitchen that underserved the homeowners in all the ways that mattered to them. It was important to my clients that they had a space that reflected their lifestyles today, yet carefully considered their future. My role as their designer and project lead was to listen first, then be their creative guide and support them in bringing the shared vision to life. As a human centred design studio our priority is the client experience, with creativity and attention, the outcome takes care of itself. Here is what our clients had to say:
¨When we were considering renovations, a trusted tradesperson recommended talking with Danielle Keogan and Maverick Design. We were extremely impressed by the elegance and simplicity of the realized designs shown on her website. We met Danielle, discussed what we were seeking for our kitchen and dining area, and she soon proposed a striking yet responsive conceptual design that made a much better use of our space. She encouraged our active engagement in selecting the appliances, materials, colours and detailing that would best transform the space into one where we would want to spend a great deal of time by ourselves and entertaining. She listened carefully to our views and integrated these into the final design. She ensured that decisions were taken in a timely manner so that all materials would be ready when needed. When it came time to do the build, she drew upon her network of skilled trades women and men, who worked together seamlessly in their tasks to deconstruct, reconstruct and beautify our house. We are delighted with the result and highly recommend the Maverick team to anyone planning a renovation or new build.
