Oatley – Side Addition

From a small family home to a modern masterpiece. The owners of this single story home wanted to add a 2 storey side addition housing an office, lounge and 4th bedroom featuring polished concrete throughout. With the owners personal experience in modern architectural design the end result was nothing short of astounding. Of particular note was the front facade which was transformed to include a private courtyard and  feature rock entrance wall which set the scene for the atrium and steel spine back staircase with open riser inside. To complete this transformation, the exterior finish was made up of matrix wall paneling featuring grey, yellow and green tones.

                                  

                                

 

                         

Sans Souci – New Home

This brand new home has recently been completed. This access challenged waterfront block has provided the owners with the ideal location to build their dream home. Our brief was to demolish the old house, garage and shed, excavate and build a modern 4 bedroom home with an accessible driveway all the way to the house.

Now complete, this new home consists of:

  • Sandstock face brick exterior
  • Large decks overlooking new pool and Kogarah Bay
  • Spacious games room
  • Theatre room
  • Large environmentally friendly windows to capture the million dollar view

Oatley – Renovation

The brief for this recently completed renovation was to change the layout of the main bedroom and ensuite overlooking the Georges River, convert the existing garage into a much needed 4th bedroom and ensuite and lay timber flooring throughout the renovated areas.

The end result was a fabulous modern internal renovation and a garage conversion that is almost impossible to pick as ever being a garage. Brilliant design and building execution to ensure this architecturally designed home lost nothing.

Oatley – Major Renovation and Addition

This job in Oatley gave us the opportunity to turn a contemporary small to medium size dwelling into a modern family home providing much needed extra space for 4 children.

It is a great example of loving where you live. All parts of the existing house were changed and updated to achieve a feeling of space. The main elements of the renovation included;

  • Open plan living
  • Large verandahs overlooking valley
  • Separate rumpus room and study for children
  • Clever bathroom design ensured all unused spaces were utilised as seen by incorporating the shower into the void under the stairs.
  • New kitchen incorporating dining and lounge opening on to expansive verandah

It just goes to show you do not need to move out to achieve your dream

Hurstville – Major Renovation and Small Addition

After completing a garage to rumpus/pool room conversion for these owners some time ago, we were pleased to be asked to come back and undertake this major renovation and addition continuing the design precedence set down in the earlier building works.

From a small fibro home to a modern 3 bedroom home this project included:

  • An addition incorporating a new bathroom, well appointed laundry and timber verandah overlooking the backyard and pool
  • Render to the entire outside of the home ensuring that the addition became one with the old house
  • Stained timber architraves, skirtings and floorboards throughout
  • Changes to existing bedrooms and living areas to make the best of the space available

There is no better reference than being asked back to do new works for an old client!

Oatley – Renovation and addition without change to front façade

This modest small single storey house maintained its existing street appeal but once inside we dismantled this illusion by creating a medium 2 storey home perfect for its growing family. Our brief was to open up the living areas of the house and provide more bedroom space.

The key features of this clever renovation and addition were:

  • New kitchen, and casual dining/lounge opening up through bi-folds on to large verandahs overlooking backyard.
  • Utilising slope of land, excavation underneath to make new ground floor
  • Effective use of space found through job eg walk in robe
  • Clever design allowed rumpus room to lead into backyard and children’s bedrooms.
