Morayfield Home Renovation Liveability Improves By 180%!

Design concept

Morayfield Home Renovation

From the outside this 1930’s character house looked like a nice home, but for the owner, the property was far from ideal. The home itself felt uncomfortable, with too many things feeling out of place. The internal spaces lacked a connection to the external areas and overall the home’s appearance was not to our client’s liking.

For this Morayfield home renovation, a pavilion addition was designed to create a new living, dining and kitchen area plus garage and laundry to a 1930′s acreage character home.

Client Satisfaction Rating

The Brief

To create a new living, dining and kitchen area along with additional car accommodation and a laundry.

Interior is to be modern whilst the exterior should be sympathetic to the current character architecture.

The Outcome

A pavilion addition was created housing a combined living, dining, kitchen area. The kitchen itself features an island bench, large pantry and lots of cupboard space.

Louvres and bi-fold doors combine to open the space up and create a connection to the exterior when so desired. A BBQ niche has been incorporated along with a fire place.

The new laundry has been created below this pavilion with new car accommodation at the front of the property.

Then interior is contemporary and eye-catching while the exterior blends beautifully with the existing architecture of the home.

In a sea of project homes surrounding the local golf course, a contemporary, streamlined roof breathes new life into the area with its newly created entertainment area design.

Originally from Western Australia, our clients moved to North Lakes and set down their roots in a local community with the most up to date facilities. They had made new friends and planned on staying long-term in their home, but desired a resort-style ambience that could turn their project home into an oasis for their family and their friends.

Client brief

Architectural Design

To create additional space to the eastern end of the home in a pavilion format incorporating

  1. An enclosed link from the current meals area.
  2. New semi-enclosed stair to come off the main link, either the gable over the existing kitchen is to extend across the stair or a flat roof link is to be incorporated.
  3. A new combined living, dining and kitchen area
  4. The kitchen to have an island bench, large pantry and lots of cupboards. The kitchen cupboards are to extend out beyond the main wall to improve the width of the dining space.
  5. A BBQ niche to be incorporated.
  6. Three of the four walls of this space to have a combination of bi-fold doors and louvre window treatments to allow the space to open up to the exterior and shut from the exterior when needed. I recommend doors with a light balustrade possibly using vertical stainless steel rod or cables, as this will give the best feeling of openness for the space when required.
  7. A larger sunshade – canopy to extend out over all window areas.
  8. A fireplace and spot for a wall mounted TV to be incorporated.
  9. Exterior feel to be in sympathy with the character architecture of the current home whereas the interior is to be contemporary yet relating back to the character lines of the home’s interior.

Beneath this pavilion, a laundry and WC toilet is to be created. A new car parking area off the front of the home is to be created. A large linen cupboard is to be added in the new hallway created extending across the current meals area. A large water tank is to be accommodated surrounded by a batten screen.

Suburb history

Morayfield Architecture

Morayfield is a suburb of Caboolture and is located about 44km to the north of Brisbane. In the early days, cotton was grown unsuccessfully and it became dairy and small crops before the rapid residential growth that made it what it is today

Morayfield architecture is mainly residential with modern brick home and some semi-rural and acreage blocks.
