Needing more space for the extended family I briefed Lauran Travena of LT & Associates to draw plans for a 2nd storey extension, comprising three bedroom, bathroom, wet bar and living area. Lauran created a beautiful open plan with excellent flow and efficient use of the limited space. Externally the design complemented and enhanced the character of the existing single storey house. We worked together to fine tune the design and with her experience and expertise she guided me through the process of meeting building requirements and obtaining the essential approvals and certificates for the works. With professional networking she sourced and liaised with contractors such as the structural engineer, and inspectors driving the process through to the attainment of a Certified Development Certificate.
Lauran is a competent and creative architect with an excellent knowledge of building industry requirements. Her input into my building dream made it happen!
We were fortunate enough to have Lauren Trevena recommended to us when we were looking for a design expert to help us do something special with our home at Mulgoa.
We were absolutely thrilled with Laurans work so didn't hesitate to call on her when we moved to our current home, this too needs some re-design and renovation.
Lauren is the ultimate professional with amazing innovative design ideas and ability.
She listens closely to what we want, adds her ideas and comes back with something really special.
Lauren is effervescent, clever, hardworking and up to the minute with her design techniques.
When you combine all of these talents you end up with an amazing result.
Thank you Lauran for all your hard work and patience.
We just love your work and you!

Lauran came to us highly recommended. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I had never renovated before and she was very patient with us, changing the plans as our ideas and thinking evolved. We had no experience in how to go about a renovation and she walked us through the whole process, making it fun, rather than stressful and torturous. She really listened to us and was very respectful of our ideas about how we wanted the house to look, rather than imposing her ideas on us. She worked with us to get us an outcome we were really happy with, pointing out things we hadn't thought of and coming up with great solutions to design a beautiful and functional home. She has a great sense of humour and is really easy to work with. We would highly recommend Lauran.
We hired Lauran with the appreciation that she was an enthusiastic and intelligent designer. Lauran was able to provide us with a number of potential designs to see which we gravitated to the most, and then through a process of refining ideas, we were able to come up with a design that was aesthetically pleasing and functionally common-sense. Something we appreciated was how readily our ideas were considered and trialled on a 3D BIMX model. This allowed us to visualise whether or not certain ideas would work in practice as we "walked" through the design on our computers and smart phones. Overall, Lauran's honest hardworking approach, combined with her knowledge and experience, allowed us to realise what we could build for our family home. Many, many thanks Lauran
After waiting nearly all last year for another company to commence
This company designed 2 renovation ideas for our property.
The first plan, a ground floor major addition/renovation, we decided against due to cost benefit considerations.
The second plan, an upstairs addition plus extension/renovations to the ground floor has won favour with us.
The architect listened to our needs well & incorporated some of our ideas into her major design, providing innovative solutions to some issues with which we were concerned.
We are very pleased with the final design, which is now at council approval stage & we are looking forward to working with this company for the build.
We also would be happy to add further comment during/after the project has completed.
I found Lt & Associates a pleasure to work with & highly recommend their services. We employed them to design a major extension to our current dwelling, including both upper & lower levels. They worked closely with us to provide a design that reflected our lifestyle & met our budget. . The companies professional approach was of an exceptional standard. All work was delivered within an agreed timeframe & when design alterations were required they were more than accommodating, helping us reach solutions that would have been impossible without their expertise. They diligently followed the project through all relevant applications & certifications allowing us a far more relaxed process than we had anticipated. I highly recommend this company.
Lauran designed a contemporary house set on a steep and challenging block in Beecroft. She patiently worked though our changes, put up with our indecision and promptly sent back the revised plans for review.
In summary, great quality service, excellent value for money.
