Tapping into Melbourne’s rich architectural history

Art Deco homes in Melbourne tell a vibrant story of style and glamour, dating all the way back to the Roaring 20s. From the beaches of St Kilda, to Melbourne’s sprawling northern suburbs, Art Deco homes are a key feature of local architectural design.

If you own an Art Deco home in Melbourne from any decade, there’s a chance that you want to retain all the elements that make it special. However, retaining architectural features shouldn’t mean having to sacrifice on space and style as your family grows with your home.

At Supa Group, we work with homeowners and families to extend and renovate Art Deco homes. Our design consultants will work with you to get to the bottom of what you want to keep, what you want to add, and what you want to change.

Key features of Art Deco renovations

Art Deco homes in Melbourne balance the rich glamour of the 20s with a range of bold architectural choices.

Geometric shapes

When looking to retain the style of Art Deco home, you'll want to retain smooth feature walls punctuated by sharp lines, zigzags, and chevrons.

Decorative features

Art Deco homes often boast a range of glamorous features, including ornate reeding and fluting, decorative panels, and interesting facades

Industrial elements

Art Deco commonly employs the tactile elements of the Post World War I industrial world, and will often include glass and various metals.

About Supa Group

Just like our home extensions and renovations, Supa Group has stood the test of time. We were founded in 1974 by Frank Way, laying a solid groundwork of commitment and service to his staff, subcontractors, and most importantly, his clients — families seeking to remain in the home they know and love.

Now owned and operated by Neil Gardiner, Supa Group’s original commitment has remained the same. Today, our clients are still offered the peace of mind that comes with hiring a builder who takes projects from conception to completion.

Our reputation as a multi-award-winning master builder is built upon a foundation of commitment to quality. We are proud to deliver best possible outcomes for our clients, and we want to do the same for you. Contact us for a free design consultation, and begin building towards the future.

What if my Art Deco home has a heritage overlay?

If your home was build between after World War II — the peak Art Deco era — chances are that your home will be under a heritage overlay. This means that, to preserve the architectural heritage of the area, only certain changes can be made to the home. All city council areas in Melbourne have different requirements for obeying heritage overlays.

Many post World War II homes around Melbourne built into the 1950’s may not present to the street as Art Deco but often the plaster cornices and light fittings give a nod to the Art Deco style.

If you think that your Art Deco home falls under a heritage overlay, get in touch with Supa Group. Our team can help you figure out just what you can and can’t do to your home. We will also work with you to design an extension that falls within council requirements, and still gives you the space you need to grow.

What are the phases of an Art Deco home extension?

Like all Supa Group projects, our Art Deco renovations follow the same three-step process:

  1. The Design Phase is where we work with you to design the new additions to your Art Deco home. We offer a Free Design Consultation to get you started.
  2. The Contract Preparation Phase is where we prepare all the necessary documents and permits between yourself, our business, and your local council.
  3. The Build Phase is where our contractors get to work building the best possible renovation solution to your home. Our quality work is guaranteed for 10 years.

If you have any questions about the process and how long it takes, contact Supa Group. Every renovation is different, and will require different timelines to complete.

Can I live in my home while the renovation takes place?

Depending on the scale of your renovation or extension, you and your family may be able to live in the home while it progresses. All you need is access to all the basic amenities for living at home — kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. However, if these are affected by the build, you may need to vacate the property for the duration.
