Raise and Build Under Carina

Stunning Post War Renovation and New Carport in Carina

Welcome to the remarkable renovation journey of a post-war house that underwent a complete transformation, turning it into a stunning and timeless home for our delighted clients. This introduction will take you through the various upgrades and enhancements made to the property, from raising the house and building underneath to adding stylish elements like a carport, contrasting exterior colours, and beautiful finishes inside.

  1. Raising and Building Under: To maximise space and create a more functional layout, the house was raised, allowing for the addition of a brand new lower floor. This extension provided the perfect canvas for designing spacious, open-plan living areas that seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor spaces.

  2. Carport at the Boundary: The exterior was further enhanced with the addition of a thoughtfully designed carport at the boundary. This not only adds convenience but also adds an eye-catching element to the front of the house.

  3. Contrasting Exterior Repaint: To achieve a striking visual impact, the house was repainted externally in contrasting colours. This added character and charm to the home, giving it a fresh and modern look while preserving its classic appeal.

  4. Pathways and Nil Exposure Finish: New pathways were poured around the house, ensuring minimum exposure to complement the concrete floors in nil exposure finish of the lower level. This cohesive approach added to the overall aesthetic and practicality of the property.

  5. Timber Decking for the Alfresco: For a perfect blend of materials, the alfresco area was enhanced with beautiful timber decking. This choice adds warmth and elegance to the outdoor space, creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.

  6. Gorgeous Kitchen with Riverine Porta Mouldings: The heart of the home was thoughtfully designed with a gorgeous kitchen featuring Riverine Porta mouldings. The highlight of the kitchen is the stunning island bench, boasting a round bench top for added interest and style.

  7. Contrasting 2pac base cabinets and green laminate tall cabinets: To achieve a contemporary yet classic look, the kitchen's base cabinets were finished in a white satin 2pac, providing a clean and elegant backdrop. The tall cabinetry was cleverly finished in a muted green-brown laminate in a natural finish, adding a touch of personality and visual interest.

  8. Classic Full Height Splashback: A full height splashback in a classic running bond pattern provides a timeless and stylish finish to the kitchen. This element ties the whole kitchen together and elevates the overall look.

  9. Complementary Cabinetry in the Laundry: The laundry, located off the kitchen, was not forgotten in this renovation. It was finished with complementary cabinetry, ensuring a cohesive design throughout the home.

  10. Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Flow: Large stacker doors were strategically placed to create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow. This connection to the outdoors enhances the living experience and allows for easy entertaining and relaxation.

  11. VJ Feature Wall in the Stairwell: To unify the upper and lower floors, a stunning VJ feature wall was added to the stairwell. This design element adds character and brings a sense of continuity to the entire house.

  12. Timeless and Classic Wet Areas: The house boasts four wet areas, each thoughtfully designed to create a timeless and classic look. These spaces exude elegance and functionality, providing a luxurious experience for the owners.

This renovation project is a testament to the power of thoughtful design and attention to detail. The post-war house has been beautifully transformed into a stunning and timeless home, offering our clients a space they can truly "live" and enjoy for years to come. The cohesive and stylish finishes, along with the seamless indoor-outdoor flow, create a living experience that is both inviting and sophisticated. We are proud to have played a part in turning this house into a place where cherished memories will be made.
