Interior Design, Renovations
This 1960’s home was certainly nothing to write home about in terms of its appearance. Although the property had solid ‘bones’, the exterior of the home was bland at best. The inside lacked space and organisation. This means that despite its potential, the home offered little comfort and had poor liveability.
Interior Design, Renovations, Queenslanders
Queensland homes have a certain charm but tend to lack practicality and comfort compared to many modern properties. They are, however, blessed with potential which is why our client engaged us to transform this Hawthorne property.
Outdoor Entertainment, Renovations, 60’s – 2000’s
The design for this renovation and extension in Nobby Beach includes an improved streetscape and the construction of a new pool entertainment area at the rear of the home, with a deck extension.
Indoor/Outdoor, Interior Design, Renovations, Queenslanders
For this Morayfield home renovation, a new pavilion was designed for the property. This introduced a new living, dining, and kitchen area to the 1930′s acreage character home, as well as a new garage and laundry
"We have been meaning for some time now to put in writing our appreciation and thanks for Dion’s creative but yet very practical architectural input to the renovations that we undertook at our home during the latter half of 2001. We continue to be amazed at the practicality of the design. We are so pleased with what has been achieved. Dion took an ordinary brick box and created a modern, contemporary styled home suited to the lifestyle we envisaged, namely, comfortable living and entertaining, both indoors and outdoors. We are grateful to Dion for that. In short, our experience with Dion Seminara as our architect and the subsequent activity of our renovations have been most enjoyable and successful, a situation which is not always the case, if one is to believe “conventional wisdom” and anecdotes about designing and building a house."
"Over the past two years we have been working with Dion Seminara to modernise our solid 1980′s brick home. The result is a modern open plan house that capitalises on a bright north-easterly outlook and is now a delight to live in. We were introduced to Dion as a result of inquiries at Australian Institute of Architects. After describing what we wanted, Dion led us through various stages of concept design and design development and eventually managed the building contract for us. We had some of our own ideas for improvement to the house, but Dion took the renovations way beyond out initial expectations to end up with the great result we now have. His experience and flair for this type of work meant that the fittings and fixtures complement the improvements he made to the overall house design through the tender process, his recommendations on builder selection and the contract negotiation process led to a quality product. We would recommend Dion to anyone wanting design and project management assistance to renovate and modernise their home. We would be pleased to provide further information or to discuss this with anyone interested in using Dion’s services."
"When we approached Dion, our scope was to open up the back of the house to make the area flow through from the inner living to the outside. Also in the process, we wanted to modernize the kitchen and as with all projects, we also extended the scope to include the main bathroom upstairs. What we have achieved is a very liveable area that flows with a modern workable kitchen. On Dion’s recommendation, we changed the orientation of the kitchen by extending into what was previously a walkway. I now have a study on the ground floor as recommended by Dion as my original study was upstairs away from the main living area and this new study is well utilized due to its location. We are very happy with the renovation as designed by dion seminara architecture."
Our architects and interior designers have years of training and practical expertise. This means that we know how important it is to always prioritise your family’s comfort, lifestyle, and enjoyment in our designs. To make sure we achieve exactly that, we’ll always consider three key things while planning renovations for your home:
It is important that any renovation design considers the existing styling of the home. This means that we will consider all the parts of the home that you love and all those things that you want to change. What’s more, this information will be integrated meticulously to create an aesthetic that suits your budget and lifestyle needs. At dion seminara architecture we understand that the perfect home renovation can sometimes be achieved through carefully planned refinement rather than a complete overhaul.
Your home should be your sanctuary. A place where you can escape the outside world and live the life that you choose to live in private. This is why our designs will always take your personal privacy needs into account. We know exactly how to cater to your privacy needs while still taking advantage of the views your home has to offer. You can, therefore, rest assured that we will give your property a stunning outlook that captures the beauty of your surroundings.
Your home renewal will achieve and even exceed your expectations. We will get to know your desires and objectives in detail before crafting a custom design that perfectly suits your needs. Our renovation architects are experts at creating dream renovations within a budget. This means that each aspect of your renovation will be meticulously planned to ensure that it works within the existing home and achieves your project goals.
Professional architects know the best ways to enhance your home’s look and function. By carefully considering the engineering, function, and aesthetics of your home they will highlight changes that may not seem as apparent or obvious to you but will have a major impact on the enjoyment and aesthetics of the home.
Architecturally renovated homes stand the test of time and they can increase your home’s value on the market significantly. A successful home renovation can, therefore, increase your total assets and put you in a better market position if you decide to sell your property at a later stage. It’s an investment opportunity that can pay off now and in the future.
Home renovations require compliance with town planning requirements and building approvals. Not to mention negotiations with builders, plumbers, electricians and your surrounding neighbours. Our renovation architects are experts and can guide you through all these steps so that you can save time and money throughout your home renovations.
We love realising your wishlist of hopes and dreams and transforming your home in front of your very eyes. This is why we do what we do. The awards we have won for our designs are a testament to our passion and vision for our clients. Yes, these awards are nice to have, and we will always welcome the acknowledgement from our industry peers. But they are, however, not what we are here for. Our focus is, and will always be, on you.
From a technical design perspective, our designs will provide a functional internal layout of your property that incorporates eco-friendly improvements. These improvements will optimise the natural light, airflow, and storage capacity of your home. Our plans will also incorporate external finishes that compliment your outdoor living areas and maximise your street appeal and landscaping options.
We treat home renovations the same way that we treat any of our new interior design projects: with creativity, ingenuity and passion. Our mission for all renovation projects is simple: to make your home better than ever. With dion seminara architecture, you’ll get a result that considers every aspect of your home and living conditions.
