This Carindale renovation included a modern update to the existing home’s look and feel with alterations to the main internal areas of the home. Externally, the front of the will have a new look with rendering and new cladding to update the 1980s styling of the current home. The front fence will also be modernised with a new laser cut pedestrian gate and modern vehicular access. The garden areas will also be updated to improve the outdoor areas and streetscape of the Carindale home.
For this Carindale renovation design we united the ill-used living space with the dining and kitchen area to create a more inclusive and open area for the family to enjoy together. A new butler’s pantry will be added to the kitchen, with the position of the covered outdoor area being moved to link better with the internal areas. A private internal stair inside the home will provide better access for visitors and family members. In order to improve the use of our client’s rumpus room, we designed it to be split into two parts. This will create two areas that can be used consecutively, rather than one big open space.
On the first floor is a new ensuite for the main bedroom, with his and her’s robes and a large linen storage area. A new main bathroom and a new study/living space on this floor will be useful for the whole family.
Carindale was the name of a housing estate constructed in the area in 1976 and was taken as the official name of the suburb when it separated from Belmont in 1980. The name itself is a combination of “Carin” from the nearby suburb of Carina, and “dale” meaning valley. Carindale is located 10 kilometres east of the Brisbane CBD and borders Belmont, Carina, Carina Heights, Mackenzie, Mansfield, Mount Gravatt East and Tingalpa.
