The Gap Contemporary Renovation
This 1970’s home in The Gap was in need of a contemporary renovation to cater for the lifestyle needs of the family and also to substantially increase the street appeal of the home.
To increase the storage space in the current garage a single carport will be built in front of the right side of the garage, with a wider garage door and storage space built-in. To improve the streetscape of The Gap contemporary renovation, a new fence will be built at the front of the property with a modern gatehouse and new driveway to refresh the look of the home.
Internally, improvements to the ground floor include creating a separate entertainment room to overlook a plunge pool with full-height windows to provide uninterrupted views. The internal stair will be altered to improve the flow between the home’s two levels, and an access corridor built for the newly renovated ground floor bathroom. The laundry will be renovated to address our client’s needs more appropriately. To access the backyard and new terrace, the ground floor will have a large three-panel slider.
On the first floor, a wider deck will be built off the kitchen and dining space, with bifold doors providing easy open access.
The existing kitchen will be recycled as the outside kitchen area on the deck space, with the new kitchen relocated to provide better flow and accessibility. We will also convert the current storage area to a study space with a large strip window providing views over the entertainment area. This will incorporate new linings, additional bookshelves and built-in desk. Further internal changes in The Gap contemporary renovation include renovating the main bathroom, converting two small rooms into a large living space, and extending the main bedroom to incorporate a walk-in-robe and ensuite.
