Colonial Renovations Brisbane

At dion seminara architecture we understand that any 1880 – 1900’s Colonial renovations require a home renovation design focused on the complete project so it doesn’t simply look like a tacked-on extension which destroys the traditional character, look and feel of a Colonial home.

We can help you with your Colonial renovation whether it be:-

  • a design that calls for the addition of living space that maintains the beauty of the Colonial architecture;
  • a re-design of a Colonial home that has in the past suffered through poor alterations or additions destroying the character of your Colonial home;
  • a heritage home protected by the National Trust that requires the skill of an architect experienced in heritage home renovations;
  • a Colonial home design that includes an extension to your Colonial home that combines the features and design of the period whilst at the same time incorporating a contemporary rear extension that flows from the original home.

Please do browse further through our Colonial Home Designs renovation gallery above for inspiration and see how Dion Seminara designs blend existing Brisbane Colonial home style with the overall lifestyle needs of clients, producing simply stunning renovations that receive acclaim and are a pleasure to live in.
