How do I gain more living space in our home?
Renovating or extending your home is the best way to keep your location. Be it Brighton, Chelsea, Hawthorn or Brunswick, your home has the potential to improve in comfort and space by adding an extra bedroom or study, or renovating the living room and kitchen to give you an open, contemporary space to suit your lifestyle.
Two storey extensions have become a very popular way of adding to living space without increasing the home’s footprint. With a variety of materials to choose from, your two storey addition can blend in with the style and character of the home or add an exciting new feature. Our design team will meet with you and discuss all of the options available and provide you with sketch concepts as the first step towards designing your extension.
This two storey extension and renovation is in the suburb of Burnley, Melbourne. The block is 171 square metres. The renovation added 9 square metres downstairs and 45 square metres to the upper level. The home has a total of 170 square metres (18.3 Squares) under roof.
This question comes up often. The difference is the level of education; degree or diploma. What happens after this period of educatioin is entirely personal. For example, some draftspeople draw windows for volume buiders, while others will gain enough experience to apply for design registration and operate their own business. Architects, as a general rule, will have less projects completed thoughout their career. This may be because of pricing and complexity, or other factors. Troy Dawes has operated his own Building Design business for 15 years, with more than two and a half thousand projects designed and a 90% build rate. His projects range from commercial and multi-residential, to verandah and garage extensions, to high-end renovations and new homes in locations such as Brighton, Berwick, Coburg, Eltham, Mount Eliza, Donvale and Sorrento. The most important aspect of Troy’s designs is the client brief. With more than 22 years of experience, he works to create a design and living space that is specific to the lifestyle of the clients.
