Bulimba Home Renovation

Reinstating the charm

Bulimba Home Renovation

This Bulimba home renovation was carefully tailored to meet the needs of our clients and to correct suboptimal design choices of a previous home renovation. Our clients always wanted a home in Brisbane that maximised indoor/outdoor living and allowed them to live comfortably alongside their five children. In 2009 their home was renovated by a different architecture firm. This work, however, failed to consider the local climate and had little respect for the heritage of this grand old 1880’s pyramid-style Queenslander. At first, we were only approached to design a privacy screen for the backyard of this property. However, once we completed this project we were quickly rehired to design a new ground floor living area for the home.

After we presented our plans to our clients, they commissioned our firm to rectify all the poor design elements of their 2009 renovation.

Project details

Correcting Poor Layout

The previous renovation created a home that was dark and noisy with little-to-no connection to the outside. To remedy this, our intuitive architects significantly redefined and transformed the space. More specifically, we developed a new ground floor layout with an outdoor lounge, a garage, a guest room, and a new entertainment room with a bar. Each space was carefully tailored and capitalised on all the natural light and cooling breezes the property had to offer. Not only did these changes, therefore, improve the sustainability of the home, but they also met the lifestyle needs of our clients, and retained the grandeur of their 1880’s Queenslander.

Design expertise

Queenslander renovations

As architects, we design new homes and renovations in a multitude of styles. Our firm has, however, a significant amount of experience in Queenslander renovations. In fact, Dion is known by many as the architect who has a specialisation in Queenslander renovations. If you have a Queenslander that you would like to raise, extend, or redesign, you may be interested to visit our Queenslander gallery.
