Family Home Makeover

Like many homes of the 1950’s and 1960’s, our clients' home was lacking in living space, and full of walls, creating smaller less flexible living spaces. What they needed was a few more bedrooms, and just a bit more space. Space to entertain, space for the everyday comings and goings of a family of five and storage – more storage.

After working through a few different design concepts, the couple decided that their preferred solution was to open up the rear of their home, creating a new open plan kitchen, meals and living space, opening out to an entertaining deck. They also chose to extend their home upstairs, creating three additional bedrooms, a shared bathroom and kids retreat, as well as opening up the roof space for additional storage, not to mention including something on the wife's bucket list – a laundry chute !
