Federation Renovation

Architect: Heather Wright Architects

Location: Kew


The owners were in a position to renovate their home, in a way that was sympathetic to the area. They wanted to expand their living areas, update their entertainment zones and generally add to their experience of "living" in their home. The extension and renovation has added living areas, an updated, feature packed kitchen, bedrooms, swimming pool, garage, double carport, landscaped gardens and a sustainable use of water.


The original home is a Federation style residence, very similar to others in the area. The design has resulted in a rear, contemporary addition which is edgy, modern and reflects a wide use of different materials. However, the design has let the original, forward residence remain intact and even though the two styles are vastly contrasting, the finished project reflects well of past and contemporary design.
