always refer to Don Browne as the ultimate creative tradesperson.
Don Browne has always responded to our display needs and has created
innovative shop fittings solutions for Kazari over two decades.
Don has always listened carefully to our requests, observed our problems
and presented clever and simple concepts.
Our recent project, the renovation of the Kazari Collector building and
450, Malvern Road, he played a major role in the fit-out
from the counter and shelving to art storage racks, display panels,
courtyard panelling and the rear gate.
He later installed a unique track system to shunt display panels away to
create open space and even worked on some of the floor surfaces.
It was wonderful to know we could entrust Don to these tasks, coming at
the end of the project,
it was essential that we could be assured of being in good hands.

Former Joint Managing Director,

Don Browne worked on our 1948 Alistair Knox home in Eltham and was so wonderfully, innovative and accommodating in his work
that we asked him to work for us again on our most recent home in Castlemaine, an 1890's
Don, has an extraordinary appreciation of the history and engineering that exists within older homes and is
always keen to work sympathetically with what is there and find recycled materials to do this with.
His inventiveness and his commitment to using recycled materials means that his prices are most competitive.
Perhaps his special talents surface most when he is presented with a challenging aesthetic and technical problem requiring an inventive bespoke solution.
He is also a thoroughly nice bloke with an equally nice dog.
