D + J Residence
Federation House Renovation
This older Federation style family home was initially marked for demolition, however after our initial visit, the client’s were persuaded that there was still some value in preserving the original structure.
The design brief was therefore to save the house, and whilst considering its heritage value, restoring it to its former glory. The intent being to create a sophisticated and functional home, with plenty of space for all members of the family to share.
The contract included a complete refurbishment of the existing interior spaces to provide the open plan layout that was previously lacking, and the addition of a striking new rear extension. This gave it a spacious and luxurious feel and created the flow-through internal spaces the clients were seeking. Building and finishing materials were chosen to seamlessly blend with the existing building fabric and enhance the sophisticated feel of the house.
Our clients were great to work with, and whilst they already had a lot of pre-conceived ideas they wanted to incorporate, they remained open to new design innovations and other unconsidered concepts. Their eye for detail, particularly with material selection and soft decorations, also ensured that the final finishing touches complimented the new work perfectly and seamlessly.
