Arnold Street Residence
A single storey brick bungalow was given a complete make over, adding a storey and reinstating the original federation character to the home.
Complete refurbishment and additions to a 1960s Neo-Georgian residence. The make-over is designed to enhance the character of the home in a classic, timeless style. Careful consideration was given to allow a contemporary family lifestyle taking advantage of north sun to living areas and improved indoor/outdoor flow. Thoughtful planning allows flexibility of use into the future. The new layout will accommodate the possibility of children remaining at home into adulthood and aging parents moving in if care is required.
Shirley Road Residence
Alterations and additions to an existing Bungalow, including a new first floor extension. The renovation takes advantage of sun to living spaces, creates a welcoming entrance and adds more living, bedroom and bathroom space. The period character of the original house was dull and heavy. The new work uses period detail and carefully selected colour schemes to lighten and enhance the facade and interiors.
