Extensions and Renovations Government Grant, ACT NOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE $25,000 GRANT. Read More
The existing home is well built and maintained. Keeping the original design, previous internal upgrades were made, however, it remained a three bedroom, one bathroom home.
The family have two children and needed more room to accommodate their changing needs. They did not want to move from the area so the natural solution was to extend.
The brief was to provide a modern addition consisting of a Family Room which flowed from the Kitchen, a Laundry, Master Bedroom, Ensuite and large built in robe.
The block had fall to the rear which we had to take into consideration during the design process. The first option was a step down from the existing floor level to accommodate the fall of the land.
This design was initially met with enthusiasm by our Clients but after reconsidering their options and lifestyle needs our Clients requested a revised design. This, along with some unavoidable town planning requirements meant a new design was required.
The new design incorporated a Laundry and WC to the ground with external access.
The aim was to keep the same floor level whilst delivering a modern looking structure. Our Clients finally settled on a contemporary cube design to contrast the old and the new.
An undercover entertaining area was mandatory to provide flow-on access to the future pool.
A balcony was created off the Bedroom and Family Room utilising the northern aspect.
It was a joy to create this home!
