Details of the full transformation

Without much room to extend, David and Lisa wanted to add an additional bedroom and living space to their classic, white picket fenced Mt Lawley bungalow.

What David and Lisa needed

Without much room to extend, David and Lisa wanted to add an additional bedroom and living space to their classic, white picket fenced Mt Lawley bungalow. Adding these rooms without compromising on functionality meant we needed to be clever with our design.

How we delivered it

With the old dining room barely being used, closing it up to become the third bedroom was a natural fit and reduced the construction costs. To give the impression of light and space, we replaced the tired windows along the back of the house with full-width French doors. We then removed the old pergola just outside this back wall, creating a large outdoor room for entertaining and increasing the use of their garden. The kitchen was gutted and re-built seamlessly into this living area. And with the addition of a large island with a double sink, the kitchen can also be used as a breakfast bench. We styled the kitchen, bathroom and laundry to fit in with the new feel of the home: Contemporary and fresh, yet spacious and practical. And finally, we added a verandah to the front of the house, making it appear larger and adding to its original charm. Because of our careful planning, David and Lisa now have a home that is highly practical and comfortable without having sacrificed its charm or character.
