Our Clients Speak
I have been working with Handwerk on the Raine Square Project and have been extremely satisfied with the high-quality craftsmanship.
I believe Handwerk’s proactive and pragmatic approach to design challenges and problem solving is largely responsible for delivering quality products on time. This was evident during the design process where the Handwerk team collaborated with other trades, architects and engineers to make the concept of a custom curved balustrade with integrated feature timber fins achievable. Handwerk are easy to work with, think creatively and effectively communicate their ideas.
I’m happy to recommend the services of Handwerk Cabinetmakers with my highest endorsements to any builder of repute.
Handwerk delivered a very complicated and detailed fit-out of various components of the State Buildings in Perth. The buildings hold the highest level of heritage significance within the State of Western Australia. Steffen and the team delivered precision work in a very efficient and timely manner under difficult circumstances. The restaurants have now been operational for several years and remain in as high quality of condition today, as they were when they will built.
Steffen and the craftsmen at Handwerk designed and built all of the cabinetry in our new house. We found working with Steffen and the team a real pleasure; they had fantastic ideas and completed everything on time and to budget. We now have beautifully crafted cabinetry with real attention to detail.
We would not hesitate to recommend Handwerk’s services.
This would be the first of many subsequent projects working with Handwerk. Issues were always quickly resolved, I tribute this to the proactive, positive attitude & the love for their solution to not only work but to impress – even in a back of house area.
Building in an existing building with Handwerk has been a bliss. While issues presented were complex in nature, innovative solutions were always provided & a vision to ensure the end result will not only work with what’s been given to them but embodies character to the space.
Upon recognition of the positive traits and the high quality end results, we were happy to have Handwerk expand their scope on the project – the main feature ceiling of the arcade area which presented long lead times and unconventional products. Handwerk seamlessly delivered on time.
Working with Handwerk throughout the process was enjoyable, whilst also achieving an outcome which satisfied the Client UNIR Hotels with no little disruption to the operation of the InterContinental Hotel Perth. I could not recommend Steffen and Handwerk more.
For QT Perth, where words thrown around in joinery were bespoke, high-end materials and quirky, we knew we had to get Handwerk involved. Handwerk’s keen eye for quality had been recognised from previous projects.
From concept to completion, although there were a number of unknowns, the odds were against Handwerk to hit the ground running given the circumstances and ever changing designs (not their fault). Against the odds, Handwerk manage to overcome hurdles presented to them with their innovative solutions & most importantly their vision for the nonconformist design intent and quality had them succeed in delivering the project without compromise.
I consider myself lucky to have worked with Steffen and his team. Meeting trades onsite from the position of Architect can sometimes be challenging. Both sides can come with preconceptions of the other. It didn’t take me long to realise that Steff is a unique balance between craftsman, designer and businessman. This gives him the ability to connect with the broad range of people he meets. His capacity to listen to an Architect, participate by way of a collaborate approach and execute upon this sets him apart.
Handwerk Cabinetmakers recently carried out an upgrade to the cabinetwork in our apartment. We could not have wished for a better outcome. We had plans drawn up by an architect (which we were happy with) but there are always those small problems that surface along the way when you’re doing a retrofit. Steffen and his team were invaluable when it came to solving any issues as they arose. Nothing was just “good enough” everything was done to perfection.
I would thoroughly recommend Handwerk Cabinetmakers

Steffen and his team have collaborated with our studio from the very start, regardless of scale or budget. A cabinetmaker is an integral part of the design process, and the team at Handwerk are yet to turn down a challenge; big or small.
