We have worked on a number projects McMahon & Nerlich and found them to be great to work with! Their pragmatic and level-headed approach to building issues ensures the construction phase runs smoothly free for all parties. We have worked on renovation projects up to $1m and would have no hesitation in recommending McMahon & Nerlich for renovation and new build projects.

We engaged McMahon and Nerlich as architects for our property renovation. We were thrilled with their ability to realise our vision. They were excellent at creating clever liveable living spaces and the final product was everything we could have imagined. We would highly recommend McMahon and Nerlich.

We hired McMahon and Nerlich to design and manage the renovation of our home now aptly known as the Jigsaw House. They applied their skills to integrate a modern addition with the heritage fabric creating a fantastic home for us. Every centimetre of the home has been maximised, whether its the roofspace for essential storage or to ensure that every room is balanced and usable. Integrating the living dining with outside was a must so too was natural light. We could not be more happy with the result and would happily use the team again.

We hired mcmahon and nerlich to renovate our terrace house in Balmain. We couldn’t have been happier with the end result. The passion for their industry and enthusiasm for our project was evident. They listened to our brief and created solutions that we couldn’t have dreamed of. Kate and Rob are a pleasure to work with.

We used Rob and Kate to design an extension for our house, to include a bathroom, study, bedroom and living area. Their design is lovely – stylish, creative and practical. They were both extremely responsive and spent many hours making sure they understood our needs and providing both design and interiors advice. The whole process was as seamless as it can be when dealing with builders and suppliers, and they went above and beyond in order to make sure everything went to plan, and was finished on time and to specs. It was obvious they really care about their work.

We briefed Rob and Kate on a highly challenging project: a two story, contemporary serviced apartment to be constructed above two shops right next to a tram line in a heritage area on an existing subdivision with a complicated ownership structure. They more than delivered on the brief. The result is a stylish urban retreat in the tree tops of Albert Park. We use the apartment ourselves between short term rentals and it is a fantastically liveable space made unique by the elegant timber detailing, lighting and hidden storage for us to lock away our essentials between stays. Every single review from our short stay guests has been a 5 star rating. Rob was meticulous in the project management, going beyond the call of duty, while Kate accommodated our “no white please” colour palette with great sensativity despite that natural architect’s compulsion to ‘go arctic’. As soon as the project was finished we gave them the go ahead to remodel and update our office. Instant endorsement!

We gave Kate a very difficult brief to take a small run down heritage protected home on a tight block, and create a modern, north facing energy efficient family home. Council were quite difficult as there was no double storey precedence in our heritage precint, and given the shape of our roof it was impossible to hide the extension at the rear. Kate did a great job in finding a solution that got council over the line while still meeting our requirements to find the perfect floorplan. Now nearly at completion we couldn’t be happier with the end result, we have an amazing home that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing, with amazing natural light which will no doubt improve our lifestyle.

We are working with McMahon Nerlich to design and build an extension to our single fronted Victorian in South Melbourne. The design has maximised the use of every space in our home, creating new spaces for our two young girls and us on a relatively small block, with beautiful design features and simple lines. We are so excited to begin the build early in the new year and highly recommend McMahon Nerlich for your next project.
