For professional renovation and extension designs for our home, Annaleisa was a wonderful choice!
She is a very patient and pragmatic person with excellent people skills. We would recommend her to anyone who was looking for a designer with creative ideas, strong practical skills, building industry knowledge and common sense. Annaleisa was always completely transparent about costings.
Our house was previously a series of dark small spaces, but the renovation saw natural light spill into the centre of the house, even on a dull day, and was amazingly cool even on a C43° searing summer day, thanks to some creative natural ventilation ideas.
At first, we didn’t prioritise the environmental sustainability of the project, but as the design developed, we saw the final scheme responded to the peculiar needs of our narrow terrace house in ways that will save us a fortune in lighting and air-conditioning in the future!
We love it!

Our home was a 1920’s single storey California Bungalow on a steeply sloping site, which made it difficult for us to see how a second storey might work, and we were reticent about the process.
have ended up with a great looking two storey home, with associated pool and landscaping layout and we couldn’t be happier.
We found Annaleisa to be fruitful with design ideas that took the site and our lifestyle into account. She was very professional in her approach to her work, and thorough in her processes. More importantly for us, after prior renovating experiences, we were pleased to find someone who listened to what we wanted and who got our job done efficiently and on time!

As we are have now received our Construction Certificate, I wanted to express our appreciation for your assistance from the commencement of our planning through the original DA stage and now onto the building phase.
he final approved design is exactly what we were looking for, and your prompt responses and professional manner at all times eased the process for us and contributed to the overall success of our DA application.

In 2015, we engaged Annaleisa Hampshire of Hampshire Design to produce a DA submission for upper floor addition and internal renovation plans for our semi-detached property in Maroubra.
The scope of the work involved council compliant design plans, DA documentation and council liaison. With such a tricky site (being an attached house on a long and narrow block) we were very happy with the design solutions Annaleisa provided, especially in relation to bringing light to the dark centre of the house.
We have no doubt that Annaleisa’s great design skills and systematic approach with relevant planning regulations at Randwick Council ensured the smooth approval process.
We have ended up with a design our family can live and grow with for many, many years to come, and continue to recommend her to friends and family.
Karen & Dragan, Kensington, NSW
As we are progressing towards completion of our renovations, I wanted to express our appreciation for your empathetic assistance from the commencement of our planning through the original DA stage and onto the amendment, as the work progressed, of our approved Development Application.
Your prompt responses at all times to our tight schedule enabled us to consider and review your helpful concept design and draft plans so that the Building Plans and Development Application (both plans and supporting documentation) were ready when required.
As I have told you we were delighted that on both occasions we needed Council Approval, the Council dealt with our applications without question and approved your plans immediately after the respective notification periods expired.
If it would assist you at any time, I would be happy to provide references to your potential clients.
With best wishes and kind regards,
Peter, Randwick, NSW
We engaged Hampshire Design to carry out design work on our home in 2014. She came highly recommended to us from a close friend of ours who had worked with Annaleisa while renovating. We were delighted to find that our experience with her was also very positive.
We found Annaleisa to be very professional in her approach to her work, which was of a very high standard. More importantly for us, after renovating for many months prior to Annaleisa joining us, we were very pleased to find someone who listened to what we wanted, was a pleasure to work with and who got our job done competently, efficiently and on time.
We would have no hesitation in asking Annaleisa to carry out future projects for us and recommending her to other clients.

I’m writing to thank you for your work in putting the design plans together for my hairdressing salon.
I found you very professional and easy to deal with, as well as being very upfront with your fees and also finishing on time. I was able to communicate very effectively with my builders to get the exact layout I wanted and the full complement of trade fit-out plans and excellent 3d images also helped to fast-track council approval.
Your practical input in navigating some of the functional hazards of designing the space were also very useful. I was very pleased with the result and would recommend you for other retail, commercial or residential clients.
Many thanks for a job well done!
