Renovation and extension to the existing house in Wheelers Hill
Gwynne Mt Waverley
Illuka Mt Waverley
Terrara Vermont South
I know this lovely family from my kid’s school. I was engaged to help them doing their house renovation.
The aim was to convert existing garage into his wife’s painting studio. Obviously she is a master in chinese painting (http://www.chinesepaintingstudio.com.au) and the existing rooms inside the house are not really support her growing business anymore. There is also a requirement to create a guest and vanity rooms.
I can see the potential of its natural site that is facing to the north to its rear backyard. By opening up area internally and connecting to the existing dining area with some opening windows, it creates a nice bright open area. The new extension can be used as a secondary entrance to welcome her future guest or students. Some of challenging parts are to join a new roof with the existing and connecting this converted garage onto the main house without blowing their budget significantly. A new guest room has an abundant of light and connecting view to its backyard. A new studio can accommodate more than 10 students; and it can be run without disrupting their family daily activities.
The client is very satisfied with the result.
Renovation to existing single storey dwelling.
I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to meet and know this lovely family.
They intended to create a bigger living room and to renovate their existing kitchen.
The proposed concept is to create a contemporary open plan kitchen-dining-family area while maximising natural cross air ventilation and sun light.
Below are some photos – before and after the renovation.
