Upgrade your Federation home without compromising the heritage
In Australia, Federation style homes were built roughly between 1900 and 1914 — between the birth of Australia as a unified country, and World War I. These houses, impressive and ornate in style, have become some of the most cherished architectural structures in the country. But, of course, since they’re over a century old, there are at least some elements in most Federation style homes that cry out for renovation.
At Supa Group, we can add space and the benefits of modernity to your home, without compromising the historic appeal. By collaborating with our team of designers and builders, you’ll be able to achieve all the aspirations you have for your property.

Key features of Federation homes
Federation houses in Melbourne are as grand and aspirational as the young country in which they were built.
Red brick and woodwork
Many federation homes feature beautiful red brick facades, ridges of white mortar, and impressive woodwork on the verandas.
Fireplaces and chimneys
Federation homes were built long before we had access to the sophisticated, electronic heating systems of today.
A blending of styles
Federation homes give a nod to the Art Noveau architectural style. This blends with the Arts and Crafts movement and there are many examples in Melbourne of this style, particularly in suburbs like Ivanhoe and Eaglemont.
