A workers cottage renovation can produce a modern contemporary home, or retain the cottage character or provide an ultra-modern rear extension.
All architecturally designed workers cottage renovations created by Dion and his team of architects incorporate your lifestyle needs as well as uses the best features of the home and block of land. If your workers cottage is on a large block of land there are many opportunities, however, if it is a smaller block it really requires getting creative and presents a challenge. Either way, we enjoy testing our architectural design skills.
dion seminara architecture have created some wonderful renovation designs and new homes for workers cottages of all types and styles including the popular Bungalow style homes of the early 1900’s. These weatherboard and timber homes lend themselves to many different options in terms of renovation. Some have a traditional style that is worth preserving and enhancing whilst others with little character can be completely transformed.

Some workers cottages from the early 1900’s have decorative gables and arches and the well-known front porch, verandah and sometimes a larger wraparound verandah. In this instance, we can renovate and extend your Queensland workers cottage and retain all the features of yesteryear. Or alternatively, we can also successfully combine the traditional home features at the front of the home with an ultra modern extension to the rear. If your early 1900’s workers cottage has little in the way of classic appeal, then your home renovation can transform your small weatherboard workers cottage into an entirely ‘new’ and outstanding contemporary home with all the advantages of our design skills and up-to-date building materials.
