Our journey with ISD began 3 years ago with a run down Californian Bungalow, some roughly drawn scribbles (that constituted our plans) and a number of horror stories about the building industry. Finding the right person to help us achieve our dreams was the corner stone on which everything depended.
From the moment we met Mario DiNatale, we felt we had found that person. He gave generously of his time to answer all our questions, discuss our plans and inform us of the process. His vision and eye for detail transformed our scribbles into a beautiful home and as the months unfolded we came to realise how fortunate we were to have engaged Mario/ISD as our building designer and architect.
His knowledge of the industry together with his talent and enthusiasm were only surpassed by his honesty and passion for the job. He answered every phone call/email even when he was on holiday; sometimes we’d send off an email at midnight and there would always be a response by the morning. If it mattered to us, it mattered to Mario – no matter how big or how small our concern was.
Over the lifespan of our project our trust and confidence in Mario strengthened and reinforced as he demonstrated a boundless energy and an integrity that was steadfast even when things became stressful and challenging. He lead us through every phase of the renovation and extension, helped us chose the right builders and kept everything together when things became overwhelming. He supervised and co-ordinated every aspect of the build and achieved an exceptional outcome that we are absolutely delighted with.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Mario DiNatale and his team at ISD.
