After now being in our beautifully renovated house for a year, we have had time to reflect on the journey we took with Eva-Marie and her team at Architect Prineas. From the outset, we knew Eva-Marie was the one person who understood our vision. But what she was able to bring to that vision was so much more and really far beyond our expectations. 
This is a testament to her integrity, intelligence and exceptional creative flair as well as her patience and ability to calmly and thoughtfully problem solve. This put us tremendously at ease during the whole project. 
A huge thanks also goes to our builder Aaron Whyte and his team at Element Constructions who did an amazing job in working hand in hand with Eva-Marie to realise the dream. Also thanks to Bridget Webb from Architect Prineas who also ably supported us during the project. 
Your Talents, kindness and sense of humour have given us this beautiful home we live in.

Thank you Eva-Marie... Thank you for all your work. Our friends and family loved the house. We had so many compliments about the beautiful addition and the seamless transition between the old and new. You promised me a jewel and we got one.

It is always a pleasure to work alongside Eva-Marie and the team at Architect Prineas. From concept to handover, they are extremely clear and concise in not only their documentation and plans but also their ability to communicate all design decisions to reach the desired vision for each project. Architect Prineas not only design your dream home but they are also a builder's dream!

Architect Prineas did the most amazing job with my 2 bedroom apartment. Eva-Marie and her team converted something old and sad into a modern marvel of calmness, simplicity and luxurious but under-stated style. ... The place is absolutely wonderful to live in. The perfect sanctuary to retreat to and relax in. With its “wow factor”, it is also great for entertaining. What’s more, Eva-Marie and her team handled the entire process for me. With a busy work life this made the process stress free and smooth. I am massively indebted to Eva-Marie and her team, and I look forward to working with them again on my next project.

A year ago today we moved in on a rainy day. Today the house is more beautiful than ever. ... We LOVE it so much and it would not have happened without you. THANK YOU. According to the Mayan Calendar it's the end of the world today. Let's hope we can enjoy it a bit longer. Ariana

When we approached Architect Prineas after buying our 'renovators delight' we had a specific vision in mind for our property. ... This was for a modern, funky space whilst dealing with the most important issues for us which were privacy, security and natural light. This had to be achieved whilst preserving the character of the old part of the existing house and blending the two together.

Architect Prineas understood our vision and through friendly, relaxed discussions, the negotiations and planning of the project went ahead. Architect Prineas's execution of the planning through to the project management in conjunction with very professional builders was meticulous, seamless, worry free and very efficient.

Architect Prineas not only achieved our expectations for our renovations, they exceeded them and we are now proud to live in a beautiful home.

We’d bought our semi knowing its potential and spent some time deciding what we wanted, to the point that we thought we had it all covered and had DA plans drawn up by a draftsman.... Our builder suggested we flesh out our designs for the interior so we contacted Eva Marie Prineas at Architect Prineas. Eva Marie offered to make some minor but far reaching improvements to the plans including opening up the main living space to the North and incorporating a light well . The end result was a full delivery on the potential of the property – we have an abundance of natural light all year round, with warmth maximised in winter via thermal properties and coolness maximised in summer via capturing the breeze. However, the most rewarding aspect for us was that with Eva Marie then project managing, we knew that our focus on high quality and style and minimising cost could be delivered. This was because quality finishes could be added where appropriate thereby augmenting the basic design principles that were in place, and that we had someone that fully represented our vision in those few inevitable situations where construction issues arose.

We are extremely satisfied with the design and building process and obviously with the final result, and have been more than willing to have architecture students and publications come through our home to see what AP has helped us achieve. To date, at least two sets of friends have selected AP based on our referral.

Architect Prineas not only achieved our expectations for our renovations, they exceeded them and we are now proud to live in a beautiful home.

The Committee of the Kytherian Association of Australia write to commend you on the results of the refurbishment at Kythera House, 24 King Street, Rockdale, 2216.... Through your devotion, attention to detail, and innovative design concepts you have facilitated the construction of a high quality space which has answered the requirements of the initial brief.

Many of the features that you insisted on, such as the kitchen/toilet ‘pod’ and the ‘light-flooding’ effect on the stairway, have proved to be truly inspired. All of the KAA Committee members, members of sub-committees, past presidents, and other Kytherians who have had the privilege of viewing the completed Kythera House have been very impressed.

They are particularly impressed with the quality of the finishes. You have certainly produced the ‘WOW’ factor that the KAA Committee was seeking. We have also noted even during brief visits, Kytherians have been inspired to take down books from library and peruse them, enter into discussions about their Kytherian identity and heritage and engage socially with each other in a meaningful way. We write to thank-you profusely for creating a Kytherian cultural ‘space’ of the highest quality.

Eva-Marie and her team at Architect Prineas have given us exactly the house we desired - contemporary, light, clean and timeless whilst retaining and highlighting all that makes a bungalow. ... After the initial consultation (and seeing previous projects on the website) we had every confidence this would be achieved with a seamless transition and the renovated house would remain sympathetic to its surrounds.

The end result leaves us in no doubt the difference an Architect can bring to a project and we are pleased to say the relationship has not concluded once the final payment has been made and the keys handed over. We love living and raising our young family in this house and can appreciate the contribution the teams own life experience has added. As the true test of satisfaction, we will definitely utilise the services Architect Prineas again when we build our next dream home.
