    We specialise in creating unique, custom designed, healthier, comfortable homes and commerical interiors.

    Essence Design does not have a 'signature style'. We specialise in a blend of interior and architectural design that reflects our client's personality and lifestyle, by capturing their design dreams and making them a reality. We listen, and understand the goals, dreams, issues and constraints related to each project. We strive to blend our new homes and existing home alterations/additions with the natural features of the site, we focus on maximising sunlight and views, protecting existing mature vegetation, and creating privacy. We strive to provide our clients with an interactive design experience, through the use of Revit 3D modelling. We find that through this process our clients partake in a creative and thought provoking experience that results in a unique tailored design.

    We have been working with Robyn and Essence Design on our home renovation project for the past 4 months and Robyn has been fantastic. We had taken our basic concept and ideas to her and she was able to re-craft them into design plans that meet exactly what we were looking for. She has been great at taking into consideration the space we are working with and the era of the house. The REVIT programme has been amazing in terms of being able to give us a vision of what the renovations will look like. The ability to create and view different parts of the house is simply priceless. We can highly recommend Robyn as an Architectural designer. She has been great to work with and made what can be a challenging process, enjoyable and worthwhile.

    It was a difficult task to ensure that we could carry on working effectively while both refurbishments took place but this was planned with great effectiveness and the results have been well worth the inevitable challenges of the construction phase.

    You have been a pleasure to work with Robyn and you have used your broad skill base and design flair to assist us to create a great facility.

    We appreciate your help and we commend your services to anyone who might need good design, close support and good technical knowledge and capability....and a nice person to work with!
