Norman Park Queenslander Home Renovation


Norman Park Queenslander Renovation

This Norman Park Queenslander renovation included alterations to 1940s Queenslander that was previously poorly renovated. The proposed design revolves around enhancing the streetscape and living areas both inside and outside. As our clients require a lot of vehicle storage a roof form over the carport will dramatically reduce the impact of this structure and the eye will be lead through to the front door. A roof structure will also be built over the entry bridge and entry deck. The entry bridge ensures there is continuous flow through to the front door from the street where visitors will park.

A secondary entrance will provide access to the ground floor, providing our clients with the potential to rent this space out in the future. Moving from the front entry through the home a few minor adjustments have been designed, which include creating an internal private entry space and reducing the entry hallway. All these changes will enhance the impact of the re-developed living space which will become a major feature of the home.

Project details

At the rear of the home we will expand the living to include internal dining and casual living with high raked ceiling to capture both northern light and breeze. The same would be done to the roof over the existing deck. A cat run has been incorporated and will also provide shielding from the western sun along with a screen wall.

A double carport with panel lift street side would be created in the front yard with enough depth to house our client’s boat and extra storage.

An entry bridge will be built next to the carport as well as a small roof over the entry.  An indoor-outdoor room will be built for the living area with entertainment recess to the west and a study space.
