Project summary

…number 50 preserves the original family home’s historical charm while integrating modern amenities – guided by principles of heritage respect and contemporary living. It contributes positively to the neighbourhood’s architectural integrity and cultural heritage while enhancing functionality. Careful consideration is given to scale, materials, and context to complement the area’s historic fabric. Meticulously planned addition improves living spaces while retaining much of the original structure. Collaborative efforts ensure a cohesive outcome, seamlessly integrating structural, landscape, and interior elements. The project’s cost-value outcome reflects prudent decision-making, maximising investment value while respecting budget constraints. Sustainable features and tailored solutions enrich the family’s quality of life, ensuring usability and enjoyment for years to come.

Using the existing footprint, BR have modernised our 1930’s home for our family’s lifestyle.

The two distinct wings, the Master suite (eastern side) and the Teen/Guest bedrooms (west), both have bathrooms and sitting areas, providing privacy & independence for our son as he grows up.

The central living room, study, entertaining spaces at the rear (in what was the 1970’s extension) provide airy & cohesive spaces for everyone to come together to work, eat, relax, celebrate & entertain. Sliding doors transform the shared areas so adults and teens can gather simultaneously.

Our home is a calm, beautiful retreat – we could not be happier
