Although this family loved their Coburg home and eagerly anticipated the annual visit of parents from the UK, the home lacked the space for them all to live comfortably under one roof for lengthy periods of time.
With a growing trend towards multi-generational living, house extensions are becoming more popular. An extension affords families the space and versatility for shared accommodation and can be customized to suit everyone’s needs.
The brief was to extend the house, create separate sleeping and living quarters for the parents, whilst still providing a floorplan that was conducive to a comfortable lifestyle without fear of losing privacy.
The old undercover entertaining area made way for the ‘Parents Wing’ which comprised of a private living area, wet bar with a meals area and access to the spacious bedroom with bespoke BIR and luxe ensuite.
The extensions distinct design was not only creative but smart with both the living area and the ‘Parents wing’ having independent access via double glazed stacking doors to the charming rear garden.
Minor modification was made to the existing home implementing an attic space with a retractable ladder; a trending storage solution.
All members of the family were delighted with the end result. A home that was not only beautiful and functional but provided them all with the space to live harmoniously.
