An Alteration to an Existing Victorian Residence

This Newport renovation is located in inner-city of Melbourne. My client came to me with the desperate need of additional space; and they did not want to relocate to a new property due to the costs involved (stamp duty, relocation costs, etc.). 

The Brief

Their brief was simple. The additional accommodation they required was a fourth bedroom and an ensuite. They also wanted to a new kitchen and bathroom. 

The Constraints

The restriction included the Building Regulations setback requirements; which prevented a second storey being build (There was also the concern of the increased costs; along with additional area required for a stair). My clients also did not want to extend into their rear garden. 

The Solution

The existing plan was reworked and extended. The design cleverly took advantage of the narrow space beside the house – the area which is never used for anything. The increase in floor area for the proposal is a minimal 7.5sqm.

To think this this newport this Newport Renovation was able to achieve one additional bathroom, walk-in-robe and bedroom; with only 7.5sqm of additional floor space is amazing.
