Originally built in 1925, this brick bungalow had undergone a series of intrusive renovations. To restore the integrity of the building, our in-house architect Helen Marchesani’s design pulls the home back to its core and adds a substantial extension to the rear.

While designed as a generously proportioned 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home with self-contained studio, the layout has the flexibility to be reconfigured as required.

The renovation respects the original home in scale and proportion, without mimicking the past. It takes inspiration from rural French villas, with the home arranged around courtyards allowing the owners to enjoy garden aspects from every room.

The formal lines of the architecture juxtapose with soft detailing and exposed raw elements, giving the home a relaxed elegance. With its timber-lined ceilings, custom steel-framed doors and extensive use of timber joinery, this residence is a celebration of craftsmanship.
