"We used space wise design to design a two storey house on a narrow block in fremantle. Mariska really listened to what we wanted and drew fantastic plans which really made the most of our block and views.."
"Mariska from Spacewise Design was integral to my kitchen renovation. Her design ideas worked to create a space which opened up the kitchen/dining area to our outside living area. She suggested the use of bi-fold doors for the opening which work absolutely perfectly.
Mariska was very respectful of my wishes for my new kitchen area however helped me to be more objective and create a space which I had not even thought of."

"I hired Mariska @ Spacewise Design to draught and design my new home. I purchased a battleaxe block and needed a compact but spacious single storey home that made the most of the difficult space. Mariska came up with a plan straight away that did just that and then she worked with me consistently to refine the design to meet all my needs. I have ended up with a very cost effective design that is solar passive and has no wasted space at all and also has great separation between areas. Lots of different areas outside and great airy living spaces inside. Mariska was very easy to work with, responded to my phone calls, had lots of innovative ideas herself but always ready to listen to my ideas and to incorporate them into the house.
The design process was painless and exciting (unlike the build which is a different story and nothing to do with Mariska) Mariska was happy to liaise with the builder to get the design through council and I could not be more pleased with her work and support."
"Spacewise Design - The reason our owner build was on time and within budget.
Back in October 2012 I made the decision to extend my house. Due to being a sub divided block, the only way to go was up. There were a number of challenges some included, metal stud frame walls that were not capable of taking extra loads, a unique shaped roof and the inability to use common property for building access.
I presented Mariska with a very basic drawing of my plans for the extension. She was able to draft a design to make this a possibility and make the house look like it had never been extended. On top of this, the amount of invaluable advice that she provided from the start allowed me to submit the correct documentation to council in the correct order, find cheaper alternatives to building materials and conduct my own accurate energy rating.
Assistance was also provided through the structural engineering process. Mariska being aware that I was an owner builder with some challenges ahead of me was able to ensure that the structural engineer had on the plans extra standards that I was able to present to the carpenters. Also come up with solutions to avoid the need for cranes.
I cannot recommend Spacewise Design enough."
"I cannot say enough about Mariska and the help that she has given us to achieve our dream home. This lady is a 'real life' fairy godmother and her understanding of conceptual design is second to none. In our 5 new builds that we have completed, I have never met such a kind hearted, calm and organised person who is so talented in her every design idea. 5 stars is not enough!!"
