Project Description

Space for all the families members – human and furry!

This fifteen year old spec home was renovation ready. Home to a busy family of five and their beloved dog Bluey, our brief was to lighten, brighten and update throughout with pops of colour, to re-purpose a rarely used activity room to incorporate a study space and second TV area and to renovate the kitchen, bathrooms and wet areas.

The planning component of this renovation was detailed to ensure that the renovation schedule truly worked around the family. We scheduled the renovation into two parts with the family living in during stage 2. Our first stage of renovations included completing the gamut of dirty, dusty work, completing one bathroom for use, painting and carpeting the kids bedrooms so they were ‘move in’ ready and preparing the home for the second stage once the family moved back.

We sought the assistance of Casey Caville from Studio 74 to work with owners Damian and Lucy to design the new activity room/study, to assist with selections and advise on cabinetry design in the kitchen and living area.  In total, the project was completed in ten weeks and without blowing our trumpet too loudly, it was an absolute text book renovation. The house is now ready to see the family through their next fifteen years; it feels seamless to move through, the use of vivid colour creates a sense of fun, the cabinetry has created so much more functional storage and every room is used and used well.

Our thanks to Damian, Lucy, Angus, Mikey, Sam and Bluey for trusting us to transform your home.
