A modern house extension to an original bluestone homestead (circa 1865) in Pipers Creek.
The works comprised a new living dining space featuring a fully equipped kitchen with bespoke butlers pantry, powder room, internal external entrance hall, a mudroom, and perimeter verandas. The former kitchen and dining area was converted into a study, and the sunroom lounge was removed to make way for the new build.
Featuring custom joinery, window seats with drawers, and bespoke shelving in the butlers pantry bring functionality and beauty to this family space. Victorian Ash flooring is complemented by the spotted gum decking and cladding with black Woca stain that highlights the tones of the original bluestone walls. The historic bluestone features were preserved by the Edifice team who carefully and painstakingly cut in for electrical and plumbing services. There were no shortcuts taken.
The AWS architectural double glazed windows, Philippe wood fire and modern kitchen appliances were all carefully chosen and installed – quality products that enhance the lived experience of the clients and add value to the home.
The extension was designed by Mennie Architects to bring light, warmth and modernity to the family home, but it was imperative that the extension complement existing historic features.
