The result has been stunning with the clients delighted with the transformation. Greater internal living space now feels connected with the exterior areas of the property. Raising the original home allowed for expansion without losing precious outdoor space.
This 1960’s home was certainly nothing to write home about in terms of its appearance. Whilst the property had solid ‘bones’ the exterior of the home was bland at best. Inside it lacked space and organisation resulting in a home that was low in terms of comfort and liveability.
For this Indooroopilly home renovation, the owners were seeking a modern and contemporary renovation to transform their 1960s Post-War home completely. Increasing the overall living space and improving the connectivity with the outdoors was a crucial component of the design brief. This home provides functional, sophisticated and sustainable architectural solutions, bridging contemporary Australian design with Japanese inspiration.
The owners – fans of Japanese architecture – sought to transform the home with a contemporary renovation that would result in a modern Australian design with a Japanese flavour.
More space was also high on the list of must-haves with everything having its place to reduce clutter and improve flow throughout the home.
Indooroopilly Home Renovation
Situated on a sloping block, the existing post-war home’s timber frame was salvaged, forming a structural and integral component of the renovated home. Lifting the old house allowed for a modern building to inject sophistication and prestige into the site. This meant the home’s overall size could be increased without using up valuable real estate at the rear of the property.
This Indooroopilly home renovation won the 2016 ArChdes Residential Architecture Award.
