It is hard to imagine that this magnificently completed home in Doncaster East was once a tired, run down, brick home in need of a complete makeover. The client brief was simple; design, modify and transform the existing home to better reflect the owner’s modern lifestyle and create a visually appealing residence.
The design team at Cameron Construction set about redesigning the poor and underutilised living space including the kitchen. To permit open plan living, internal walls that once housed the laundry and kitchen were ear marked for demolition and new walls were positioned to zone newly formed areas. The existing kitchen position was relocated within the new zone to present a seamless and open plan living area and offer modern living facilities. The addition of a family meals area that opened to a new alfresco area and invite entertaining outside was incorporated into the design.
The existing facade was tired and in need of a total transformation. A stately front elevation was designed to incorporate an impressive freestanding portico extending up more than seven metres through the ground and first floor elevations.
In keeping with the new style, moldings were designed for existing and new window surrounds, including the garage door opening. Powder coated window detailing were included for the front windows and portico openings. The entire project was finished with the addition of pre-coloured acrylic render
Much to the delight of the home owner (and to the surprise of others) the home transformed and matured into a magnificent and stately residence that provides year round livability and facilitates a modern lifestyle.
