From Victorian homes to mid-century modern properties, much of our residential architectural extension and renovation design work centres on heritage homes around Melbourne and regional Victoria.
At Jane Cameron Architects we have a proven track record in sympathetically and innovatively merging the old with the new, creating sophisticated, light-filled spaces that are functional and comfortable – and celebrate the defining characteristics of the home’s history.
For us as architects, renovating period homes can present significant constraints that can make it more challenging than embarking on a complete new build. But it’s also richly rewarding and can provide deep insights into how people live.
While every home we design is unique to the people who live there, we apply consistent principles when renovating heritage homes. We will never mimic a period style; instead we will endeavour to carry through specific design features while applying contrasts where appropriate, and we will reinterpret details and materials by design.
Ultimately, as designers and architects we believe we have a responsibility to preserve the history and culture of a home while ensuring it meets the evolving needs of the people who live there.
