This project was a semi-detached four bedroom eastern suburbs property.
The rear kitchen and living area were not being used efficiently due to the laundry being located externally at the rear of house.
The rear wall and laundry were demolished and the rear wall was extended out 1.2 metres to the roofline. Bi-fold doors were then installed to the rear extension creating a vast entertainment area.
The first floor living room was originally an odd shape due to the staircase void being quite large and irregular. The size of the staircase void was reduced by installing new floor joists and removing the existing staircase balustrade.
A modern glass balustrade was then installed to the staircase as the staircase was originally an open staircase and did not meet safety standards. The underneath side of the staircase was enclosed and new joinery was installed to match the existing joinery in the kitchen. The laundry was relocated back into the house near the bathroom and matching joinery units were created as well as adopting innovative storage solutions for the laundry appliances.
Originally the rear yard was overgrown and sectioned off, so retaining walls were demolished which opened up the backyard and created an open space.
Travertine pavers were installed in the courtyard and garden beds were created to the rear and sides of the paving creating a more effective garden space.
