Fig Tree Pocket Home Renovation


Fig Tree Pocket Home Renovation

For this Fig Tree Pocket home renovation, we focused our designs to improve the property’s overall aesthetic, to create separate living spaces for different members of the family, and to correct a number of suboptimal architectural elements that our clients were not happy with. The existing home did not have any real significant street appeal. As a result, we made it a priority to revive the front of the home and placed particular emphasis on improving the aesthetics of the front entrance. We also proposed the possible installation of a pergola structure and pedestrian path to improve this area.

In order to maximise the homes’ curb appeal, we proposed a number of changes to the outside of the home. Installing a partial front fence and gatehouse (that excludes the driveway zone) will not only add interest to the front of the property but it will also expand its ‘safety zone’ for young children to play.

We will also introduce additional landscaping to the northside of the driveway. This will add further definition to the property boundary, screen out neighbouring homes, and will improve the integration of this space with the rest of the yard.

For the backyard, a new deck will be constructed that directly overlooks the length of the pool. This versatile space will be perfect for entertaining and will be filled with natural light and cooling summer breezes that roll in from the north-east. What’s more, we will install a retractable awning on the southern side of the house to create a protected area for a clothesline. This side of the home will have improved access to the newly renovated entertainment areas of the property via a new door.

Project details

When guests enter the home, they will be welcomed by a new breathtaking feature wall with a built-in niche for pictures. To its side, intricate balustrade will adorn an ascending staircase to further enhance this entryway.

We will also relocate the kitchen to create a large open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area which will open out to the existing deck. This design alteration will significantly open up the flow of the interior of the home and the installation of large sliding stacker doors will ensure that our clients can enjoy a fusion of indoor/outdoor living year-round.

The new kitchen will be built in a galley-style, have impeccable storage, and will feature a large island bench to provide additional seating and countertop space for easy entertaining.

A new bridge will also be constructed to cross over the entry with a void space that will visually open up the area further.

On the first floor, we plan to build a new extension for a new main bedroom. This addition will extend past the wall of the garage and will include a walk-in robe, and ensuite bathroom. Extensions to the garage will also provide extra storage for our clients.
