Young Family Moves Up

Yvette and Josh found themselves struggling to juggle their new family in the space available in their period home. They wanted an affordable extension that provided space that continued to suit as the children grow up. The additional first floor was accommodated in a style matching the existing home and in harmony with the streets cape.

Period Charm, Modern Glamour

Matty and Tom’s house was dark and cramped. Downstairs, a new open-plan kitchen, meals and family area provides gracious living with modern style. Upstairs comprises two generous bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge and study, as well as an additional large walk-in wardrobe.

Plenty of room to grow in Hawthorn

Louise and Qiang are a professional couple both working from commercial premises and from home. To that effect they have a couple of offices in their house taking up valuable space their growing family needed to use. Typical small rooms at the rear of their period home left the children with cramped bedrooms and without an indoor play area.

Let There be Light (and Space)

Kerin and Tom wanted more space for their growing children, a work room a music room and office. Clever reconfiguration of downstairs, along with a new upstairs affords the family with a spacious lounge and dining area, along with a modern bathroom and laundry, and two new bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, all bathed in natural light.

California Bungalow Reimagined

Alison and Daniel needed to extend their period home to more comfortably accommodate their growing family. Extending both upwards and to the rear they favoured retaining the California Bungalow style and sensibility rather than adopting a more modernist and contrasting style.

California Bungalow Within

Betty and John wanted more space for their three children and a relief from everyone sharing a single basic bathroom. A new main bathroom downstairs was complemented with two spacious bedrooms and an extra bathroom upstairs accommodated entirely inside the existing roofline, with skylights providing generous natural light.

Semi-detached Grows Up

Jane and Barry and their two children shared a compact semi-detached with space at a premium. The reconfigured ground floor now contains a larger lounge room, new dining room, a study area and a refurbished kitchen and laundry. Upstairs accommodates a second lounge/study, two bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Modern addition to existing property

This is a project which combined period features with an ultra-modern first floor addition. We respected the original footprint of the building and it required careful and thorough understanding of the extension.
