The Gap Home Renovation

Small internal renovation

The Gap Home Renovation

This home renovation project in The Gap aimed to improve the home’s liveability and street appeal. To achieve this, we made extensive alterations to the internal structure of the home and improved the aesthetics of the property with a new driveway, fencing, pool surround, deck, and landscaping.

It was important to our client that we transform the ground floor into an independent and fully functioning bed and breakfast. This floor was therefore converted to accommodate two bedrooms and a separate living and kitchenette area. Because of this design change, a new kitchen and dining zone was constructed on the first floor for our clients to enjoy in private.

Project details

Architectural Design

The first floor of the home was reorganised to improve the quality of living spaces on this level. This reorganisation also ensured that these rooms now overlook picturesque views of the lawn and neighbouring bushland. The extra bedroom on this floor was also renovated to convert into a second living area when the rooms on the ground floor are occupied by guests.

Relocating and constructing a new kitchen provided us with the perfect opportunity to craft a unique, immersive indoor/outdoor home experience for our clients. The kitchen now faces a new large deck that connects this space with other living areas on this floor.  What’s more, we installed large sliding doors to completely open up the area. This space is now perfect for alfresco entertaining and relaxing without any direct exposure to the elements.

Externally, a number of alterations were made to significantly elevate the curb appeal of this property. In the front of the property, the driveway entrance was upgraded to incorporate new security gates for vehicles and pedestrians. This was done to ensure that homeowners and their guests could securely access the property with ease. Other streetscape enhancements included new landscaping throughout (with heavier landscaping on the east for privacy), fencing (especially around the pool and the new deck), and upgrades to the pool surround and deck platforms. Some external screening was also installed to protect our clients from the harsh Western sun.

Material selection

Art Deco / Hampton Style

All the materials and design elements of this home renovation project were carefully selected to complement the existing art deco/Hampton styling of the property. This gave the house a cohesive aesthetic and further reinforced its inviting and classic styling.
