Working alongside Ingrid & Frans has been so easy, rewarding and inspiring. We are so grateful to have their guidance, experience and vision. It is thrilling to see the progress of the home from concept drawings to coming out of the ground – so looking forward to moving in to start the lifestyle of being in a Vivere home.”
