MHM Design Portfolio

Our partnership is bonded by a mutual belief that Sydney’s built environment gains much from the preservation of its mix of building styles.  Our aim is to give a fresh approach to heritage conservation by celebrating the ability of great contemporary design to maintain and enhance existing structures and add to that mix.

This philosophy translates directly to our design approach. We aim to create contemporary interiors that sit comfortably within their historical framework. The beauty of old houses is that they have a strong aesthetic of their own. Guided by the clients practical requirements, our skill is to edit the trends of today to pinpoint those that suit the project. With this aim, our design can achieve a seamless whole based on the form and character of the building.

With this ethos, we believe that we have a great formula for giving you a unique design approach.Importantly we also offer the ability to work to your schedule, coordinate with architect and builder and keep the whole process on track.

In practice, with renovations of old houses, the creative process is often guided by the activity of problem solving, one that we enjoy. We also know the importance of sourcing the necessary skilled craftsmen and working alongside builders and architects to achieve the best result.

From sophisticated Georgian, wild art deco, glamorous P&O, gregarious Spanish Mission, cool modernist, heritage houses ooze style and individuality. If you have bought one and want to maintain some of its magic, then you know what we mean. If you want sympathetic contemporary design from people who truly enjoy old buildings and new, we may be for you.
