Flashback to one of our favourite home renovation designs

Based in the heart of Hawthorn, this well-loved Victorian home was charming, but in need of new home renovation designs to make it livable for a large family.

The clients were keen to replace the home’s dated 1980’s renovation with a fresh, contemporary extension whilst bringing the front rooms to life with fresh colours, materials and luxe joinery. It was crucial that the beauty of the original home and architectural era was captured and only further enhanced with by stylish, modern extension.

A contemporary, clean line design revealing understated elegance was exhibited through rendered exterior walls, slat roof and floor to ceiling windows opening out to a resort style custom pool by Integrated Pools.

The internal spaces were designed to allow for formal and informal living zones, private and intimate areas as well as large open plan living areas to suite a modern family’s living needs. This renovation has given the home a complete face-lift, with an extension to the rear and first floor increasing the overall footprint.

“The kitchen with its modern materials and timeless marble island bench, serves as a beautiful yet functional space and looks amazing with the glass window splash back with green landscaped garden backdrop. At night, the trees through this window are lit up and it really adds another dimension, the client really appreciated this.” – Janine Carter, Interior Designer, Canny Architecture.

The first floor addition allowed for a spacious first floor bedroom area and existing rooms were modernized and rearranged for better-flowing living spaces. Modern fixtures and fittings were added throughout to the understated luxuries.
