Guy Allenby is Renovation Consultant of HAUS Co. Pty, a franchisee of Renovation Franchise Australia PTY Ltd, doing business in Illawarra

Before joining Refresh Renovations Guy served a 25+ year apprenticeship: writing, thinking and advising about home renovation, architecture and interior design via the pages of many of Australia’s leading newspapers and lifestyle magazines. Guy is a past Design Editor at Belle Magazine, ex-Domain Editor at the Sydney Morning Herald and he has written countless articles, published both here and overseas, about building, extending, re-imagining and re-inventing the contemporary home.
Guy’s peak skill is understanding and interpreting clients’ hopes and needs for their home – within the bounds of a realistic budget – and being the agent, intermediary and key point-of-contact for turning a renovation dream into reality. He’s a strong advocate for good design and innovation mediated by an understanding that smooth and achievable renovations are all about navigating a middle path in design/construction. This is the path, in other words, that marries a homeowner’s taste and wishes with the right design support (depending on the scale, complexity and scope of a particular project) alongside practical, streamlined and expert construction management.
Guy’s in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of building, extending and renovating homes around the globe, allows him to understand a homeowner’s vision for their house and to help translate this into a project plan that considers the latest building techniques and value-for-money materials. Guy is your one point of contact for all your renovation needs.
Guy is the author of a couple of architecture and design books, has a Masters Degree in Communications and has worked with a number of leading architecture and design practices furnishing their written and communication needs. When he’s not obsessing about renovation and design, you’ll likely find him on his road bike, reading a good book or binge-watching the latest Netflix series.

Guy and his team have worked on two renovations for us and both have been hassle free thanks to their professionalism, consideration and can-do attitude. Genuinely helpful, adaptable in their work and very tidy! A real pleasure to deal with, we wouldn't use anyone else for our building work.

Guy Allenby (Sydney) is very professional. He communicates frequently and provides feedback on the project.

Aida Morden

, Refresh Customer

Guy was the first person who understood what we wanted, he always got back to us, answered our questions and asked us more. He remained engaged. They respected the fact that we were living here, I know that made it difficult for them, but they’ve always cleaned up so we never had to worry about coming home to a pigsty.

So far it has been a fantastic process and we couldn't recommend Guy highly enough.

Jo Scholz

, Refresh Customer

I can't recommend Guy and Refresh Renovations highly enough! From the initial discussions through to the finished renovation, Guy delivered on the promises. The renovation was delivered on time, on budget and the quality of workmanship is second to none. Michelle and I had high expectations in terms of what we wanted and I'm happy to say our expectations were exceeded.

Refresh Renovations did the best renovation on my flat - so creative, so well-priced, so precise and careful and with so much kindness and professionalism. And on time and to budget. All of their team members are expert at what they do - design, colours, electrical, building, plumbing, floorboards etc, and Refresh really listen to what you want and what you can afford and advise you accordingly. Very, very highly recommended. I would give more than 5 stars if I could.

, Refresh Customer

Refresh Renovations' service was excellent. From the first meeting with Guy Allenby we knew we were in the hands of an experienced professional who really wanted to create a beautiful home for us. He patiently introduced us to a variety of designers at the outset and was always available to discuss ideas and options. During the build, Guy worked through arising issues with us calmly and intelligently. He never failed to go the extra mile and we were so thankful for his generosity and support! We would highly recommend Guy and Refresh Renovations to anyone embarking on the journey to renovate and create a new home. We are absolutely thrilled with the final result.
