This renovation on an architecturally designed home overlooking Western Port Bay required problem solving skills and creativity to navigate some unique design and logistical scenarios.
We made some minor brick alterations in order to reuse and repurpose existing bricks in the renovated structure. For the flooring, we used Spotted Gum — a sustainable lightweight timber, while solid Royal Paulownia was employed for the timber feature ceiling.
The bathrooms received a full makeover that included new tiling, baths, showers, toilets and lighting, and electrical, hydronic and plumbing were updated through the whole house. We installed full height windows to allow for expansive views over the bay, and internal glass balustrades with concealed fixings for a seamless finish.
When it came to the corrugated roof, a large amount of precision was required in the re-framing so the new roof looked clean and straight — important when looking down on the roof from the floors above. We also installed skylights.
Logistics wise, access to the property was tight and steep, so we needed to ensure all deliveries were well planned and relevant machines organised.
The finished product is fresh, expansive and seamless.
