The clients were not looking for a loud and contrasting extension.
They loved their character filled weatherboard house but desperately needed more space for their two children.
The new extension not only had to blend sympathetically with the period features but also provide a more modern approach internally to design and layout.
An upper floor extension was an easy decision. It allowed a functional and spacious ‘zoned’ area to be created, with only a corner fireplace making way for the new staircase, minimising the impact to the ground floorplan.
Going up; the new second storey extension greeted you with an open common ‘hangout’ area. Designed to optimise the use of space; the extension also featured two generous bedrooms serviced by a main bathroom with even a separate all purpose room that doubled as a study or spare bedroom.
On completion, the new house was now a beautiful and more spacious home that was not only seamless but had great street appeal.
The clients’ design brief was for an extension which would provide a large entertaining space; an increased number of bedrooms; and additional living spaces within the home for family living. The extension resulted in a four bedroom home plus a study with two bathrooms; a multi-purpose room; and an external entertaining deck. The size and functionality of the home was also enhanced by works to the existing family room and kitchen. The design also provided for plenty of storage space and, very importantly for these clients, complied with positive feng-shui principles.
With two young teenagers, this Art Deco Maisonette was seriously needing more space. The obvious solution was an upper floor extension allowing the clients to retain their beautiful landscaped garden whilst providing much needed space for their growing family.
Inspiration for this upper floor extension came from a ski trip to New Zealand where the clients stayed in a lodge that boasted an ultra-modern façade.
What resulted was a visually striking fusion of modern and classical. The new second storey with its Western red Cedar cladding, Colourbond roof and unique extruded casement window all stained in dark charcoal nestled proudly on the maisonette. Existing and new were undeniably distinct from each other yet connected by simple features like the charcoal stained fascia and the unique built up chimney in detailed metal cladding.
To make the upper floor extension more cost effective, Hardies Scyon Axon cladding was used to the sides and rear of the second storey extension.
The upper floor with its slick, dark hued floorboards featured two spacious bedrooms for the children with a main bathroom, powder room, open rumpus and a store room. The maisonette was beautifully and respectfully renovated throughout with only an existing study making way for the staircase minimising the impact on original floor plan.
The clients had a clear and defined idea of the extension design that would suit their lifestyle needs. Following a consultation with one of our Senior Design Consultants, a contemporary approach was taken to the extension of this traditional house. The design brief involved transforming the facade and then adding a contemporary ground and first floor extension featuring a void between the two levels. A dynamic relationship ensued between the old and new resulting in a construction that was not only functional but visually impressive.
Retaining the original warmth and character of this traditional home was one of the vital criteria which informed the planning and concept stage. Respectful transformation of the post war façade into a beautiful Californian bungalow inspired design resulted. With its new front porch and covered area, clients could sit back and watch the world pass by.
Glen Iris #2
This client has returned to Supa Group on four separate occasions over several years to carry out separate stages of their home extension. Their beautiful period home has been sympathetically extended to include a range of fabulous living options such as a large home theatre, five bedrooms, a multipurpose area and al fresco entertaining spaces. In working closely together with our clients over several occasions, Supa Group has a great rapport with the Owners and an in-depth understanding of their requirements.
A clever ground floor extension was added to a two bedroom single fronted Edwardian house.
Located on a narrow and long block, clients wanted to add an en suite to the master bedroom, create a third bedroom with a new combined bathroom and European laundry.
Transformation was completed with the addition of a light filled open plan kitchen dining and living area to the back opening up to an intimate alfresco and landscaped garden.
Framed by a glorious maple tree this 1910 built period house with its high-pitched slate roof and leadlight windows was a delight to extend. We were presented with a home the clients loved but had outgrown. The brief required a design that gave the family much needed space for their growing family but at the same time was sympathetic to its old-world charm.
No build is without its obstacles and it took a skillful design to work within the restrictions of a narrow block.
Works began with a partial demolition to the rear. Out with the old and in with the new. The new floor plan design involved converting the old kitchen into a new walk in pantry and a powder room. A ground floor extension was then added featuring a new spacious light filled open plan kitchen; dining and living area and white Victorian ash French doors with highlight windows was created; opening up to the Merbau decked undercover alfresco.
The existing first floor was extended further to create two spacious bedrooms for the family’s young children and parents were not overlooked with a new luxurious en suite for the master bedroom. The clever design also allowed for plenty of extra storage space to mum’s delight.
Attention to detail resonates throughout. The stunning white kitchen with its flecked marble bench top and herringbone tiled splashback contrasts beautifully against the organic Baltic pine floorboards that were matched to existing. Victorian ash timber casement windows and custom made doors, was the perfect finish in restoring this home to its former glory.
Externally, the second storey extension featured gable end and rough cast render to match existing façade giving this home great street appeal and making it ‘Picture Perfect’.
