Second Storey Home Extension Case Study
This home owner wanted to modernise and extend this period home in a tasteful and appealing way.
Seeking to match it with a growing family, they required a second story extension that preserved the propertys natural beauty.
As featured in Melbournes Age Newspaper, towering trees now frame the home, featuring an elevated veranda and exposed stone features throughout.
The clients key requirement was to maintain external views from the inside so large openings and bay windows feature strongly in the renovation design. This approach continues to the rear alfresco dining area that capture both views and the rustic stone themes introduced to the homes visitors as they first enter the property.
Builder Ben Campbell subtly continued the natural stone throughout the home, particularly with the fireplace a natural choice to extend the aesthetic.
In the kitchen, the light coloured stone benches, crisp and modern white cabinets with hints of natural timber combine to create a modern, warm and light filled space. Before and after shots of the property, below.
