"We could not be more delighted with our purchase.
We were in the market for a house in the city-west for more than a year before coming across our home.
It immediately felt as though it was a house without compromise. It can easily accommodate our expanding family and visitors with different spaces to share and escape. It is light-filled with a great connection to the outdoors yet it is private from surrounding neighbours. It has urban utility but a holiday house feel. It combines a sense of both the modern and the past. Combining these contradictory things is a testament to its thoughtful design.
The attention to detail and the selection of material was apparent from first inspection. It is clear that no short-cuts were taken in construction or specification. Tyrone built the house like it would be his own.
18 months on we are still discovering just how well the house is designed and put together. Tyrone has been very generous with his time in talking us through the operation and maintenance of the home, recommending the service team, and attending to any query (no matter how small) without delay. He has been friendly and available on all follow up attendances. The professionalism with which Tyrone approached the sale process and the after sale care has been excellent.
Tyrone is an enthusiastic and dedicated craftsmen. We are very grateful to Tyrone and his team for having the vision and patience to create something special"
"My wife and I researched the inner city Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Herne Bay markets for over 8 months before deciding on our purchase at Dryden St.
We had very specific requirements in our property after enjoying a decade of sun back in warm Sydney. We wanted a hassle free, light filled space with quality finishings and something suitable for a growing family. It was very apparent from our first inspection that Tyrone's attention to detail and clever use of space and light were a perfect fit. (It was clear from the many hundreds of others viewing the property, as well as magazine press, that we were not the only ones with that opinion).
We viewed a very high number of renovated properties with modern characteristics but none of them were even close to the quality of this home. The house is warm, enjoys every sliver of sunlight and is outfitted with the latest high-end finishings and technology.
We have been lucky enough to enjoy a few days now of clear weather which has enabled us to open up the doors to an indoor/outdoor entertainment haven merging our kitchen, lounge and BBQ/swimming area. This is an outstanding home for entertaining family and friends.
We have seen plenty of renovated homes in the past 6 months where shortcuts have been taken by renovation specialists but Urban Space seems to take a more difficult, longer road and spends a little bit more than the next guy in its build and finish - and the result is a standard of genuine quality that is far ahead of anyone in the market.
Tyrone had great confidence when sharing his time to show us around the property. The kind of confidence and pride that comes when you have surety that everything in place is of the highest standard. We love our new home and are growing to love it more each day".
"We bought our house from Urban Space in August 2009. In our experience, Tyrone has an approach that I believe people will find very rare and refreshing these days.
He was accommodating and friendly throughout the entire process. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about both the architectural and contractual aspects of the business, he is professional and passionate about the finish of the house. The end result was exceptional and we have had many compliments on the quality since we purchased.
Tyrone's choice of materials gives his work its characteristic finish which sets it apart from other developers. I would strongly recommend him and his business to anyone looking for building design or renovation services."
