Transformation of a heritage home keeping the charming original details


The overarching key challenge of this project was working with the existing 100-year-old home. Working with heritage listed structures, there are always certain restrictions and guidelines that the design must adhere to whilst also being sympathetic to the existing heritage with any new works. However, rather than restricting the project, this contributed to the striking finished design, with the character of the existing home complementing beautifully with the contrasting modern addition.

Working with the existing 100-year-old home and wanting to utilise the original structure to its full potential posed its own unique challenges. The final design was to be a modern design statement, whilst also being sympathetic to the original character features of the heritage home.

Both the new bathroom and new walk-in-robe feature original fireplaces from the former existing rooms which now act as key design features of these new rooms. These were both present in the original home so, rather than destroying the character, they were worked into the new design, creating a beautiful statement without compromising the new functional, practical layout of the home. Original ceiling roses, leadlight windows and timber floorboards also serve as beautiful design features, beautifully complementing the new modern finishings whilst also hinting to the home’s past life.”
