Keeping the existing front two bedrooms and a very tasteful ensuite the project was to add an architectual extension to the rear of the property with a roof line comprising of five different pitches that created an interesting extension of triangles, voids and the occasional skillion roof. Areas of interest were providing a sound proof music room with a flush finish cavity slider door hiding in bathroom wall, a custom steel loft ladder with recycled Black-but timber stairs, sunken living room with special aggregate concrete and a double inserted flu and very nice wood heater. The kitchen was made with corian stone, a minimal two-pack look with very large drawers and a smokey mirror splash back.
We enjoyed building this project especially the challenging angles and crafting a high quality unique finish across the board.
An inner city Melbourne residential renovation of rear court yard area. The first floor outdoor area was converted to a bedroom and there was a modern architectual extension done to the first floor alfresco area. As the extensions required major structural additions it enable access to perform extensive utility improvements to the heritage dwelling were undertaken in addition to new heating and cooling systems and upgrade of all electrical infrastructure. The rest of the dwelling was renovated and renewed.
This is a 3 stage build being complete renovation of bathroom, kitchen, laundry and rear entry of a 1950’s single fronted commision house followed by an architecturally designed alfresco area then finally a practical landscaped finish. Features of this build include recycled Messmate benchtops, select fittings in bathroom, spotted gum deck with hand blown gin bottle pendants and vintage LED globes and all new Euro style PVC windows and doors. Not so fancy items include full gas and hot water upgrade, restumping, new aircon and heating, repointed and clean tile roof and new fascia and eaves.
