We recently had the opportunity to complete another renovation and extension in the Coorparoo area. For this project our clients elected to stay true to the character of the existing home and their own taste by maintaining a mid-century style.

The small house was extended to include a master bedroom with ensuite and large walk-in robe. A spacious deck for entertaining on balmy evenings was also constructed, complete with a built-in barbecue area including a Ziegler and Brown 6 burner barbecue and dual fan extractor.

Redchip Constructions was also enlisted to update most of the home’s existing interior, which included asbestos removal and rectifying previous haphazard renovation attempts. A complete rewire of the house was required to bring the property into line with current safety standards. Our clients were unaware of the state of the existing wiring before the renovation was started, which is not unusual in this type of project.

Prior to this renovation, the house was quite pokey and felt very small, however internal changes, including the removal of several walls, opened up the lounge and dining areas to create a home with ample light and space.

The expert team at Blok Design Co. were called upon for their design services on this project, helping with selections that make this home truly unique. Tiles from National Tiles set off the mid-century feel of both the ensuite and renovated bathroom with a careful display of patterned tiles paired with stylish black tapware.

A black and white theme is evident throughout the home and this is continued into the new guest bathroom, previously the laundry. Once again, patterned tiles were used to create the flooring, which are set off against black tapware and a black semi-frameless shower screen.

Back in the entertaining area, the galley-style kitchen opens through French doors and a servery window onto the new deck. This was a perfect way to bring the outside in and create a seamless flow between the two spaces. The kitchen splash back was crafted from Ming Green Penny Rounds and is absolutely breathtaking, paired artfully with Caesarstone Snow benchtops. The new kitchen also features two pack built-in shaker-style cabinets.

Adjacent to the kitchen, a brass-look pendant, from the Lighting Collective, hangs over the dining table nook. This stunning feature lights up the dining table and built-in bench seat, upholstered in Skinny laMinx Roof Garden Mumbai. The bench seat has become a beautiful addition to this completed home and artfully makes the most out of available space.

Throughout the home, polished timber floorboards are present. Existing boards were repolished and seamlessly matched to new polished boards for continuity.

We absolutely loved renovating this Coorparoo home and bringing it back to its former glory, with just a hint of modernity. It really is the kind of project where photos speak for themselves…
