Menin Road

This simple timber bungalow has been transformed into a contemporary masterpiece. A beautifully well-thought-out single-story extension gives this family more than their expectations.

Glass, steel, timber and stone are carefully used and considered to create this renovation, giving dynamic light and space.

The ceiling over the dining area has been pushed high to allow winter, spring and autumn sun into the living spaces. The natural stone fireplace is a feature, offering warmth and a feel to compliment the recycled ironbark floors and immense timber columns.

The floor plan has cleverly been stepped for good sun and light orientation, and a natural way to give definition to the open plan kitchen, dining and living areas. A dynamic is added by the intelligent extension to the rear studio set at an angle and allows for garden beds and decking between the house.

Garden beds have been melded with the rear wide board timber deck to give greenery against some of the rear windows. This is combined with good rear access and outlooks, to ensure the landscape is an everyday part of living.

The family are now thriving in both their own spaces and family areas forming their perfect home environment.
