Home Renovations

Introduction to Renovations

Capitalise on the value of your location by renovating your property. 
A thoughtfully planned renovation will not only increase the value of the property but also increase its liveability and usability.
Renovations provide the perfect opportunity to refresh a home to make it better reflect the lifestyle of its owners as well as potentially reducing on-going maintenance and running costs.
Take a look at our projects below to see how Northerly Aspect Architects can make to your property.

We have worked with the Clients to look at ways to keep their cottage but to gain them the much needed space they are seeking. To achieve this we have extend the rear of the house and then lifted the house, and infilled under with a double garage, storage, two bedrooms and a rumpus, on the lower level. Upstairs we refurbished, and replanned the spaces to create a more open and bright home.

The design also has a large covered entertaining deck which flows onto the rear yard, which down the track could see a swimming pool...

A very good final result from 1Struct Construction.

We were asked to project mange this project for a professional woman who lived outside the city and who's commitments kept her away for a large portion of the construction period.

We opened up the internal planning of this 1950' cottage and then in turn opened the internal spaces onto large terrace spaces. The design linked the main house with the guest house / studio and created large covered outdoor terrace spaces.

An unexpected outcome was that now the Client has great views of the city skyline!

This project entailed the conversion of an existing Studio into a 3 bedroom home.

We orientated the house to ensure that all rooms had views to the ocean. Extensive use of tall ceilings and louvres ensure that this house naturally ventilates - and does not need air conditioning.

Hidden a way in the Gold Coast's hinterland, surrounded by rolling hills and positioned a top a small hill this home has an idilic location. The owners purchased the home seeing the potential of the location - but the house was small and needed work.

The house was moderised throughout. By staying within the existing building envelope and re-planning some spaces were able to make a radical transformation to this house on a very reasonable budget.

With the outdoor entertaining area we were able to create a indoor / outdoor space which in summer creates a additional living space for the home. The position of the entertaining space takes advantage of the surrounding views by projecting forward of the face of the building.

This Architectural designed home from the 1980's was starting to show its age. This was a large refurbishment which affected almost all areas of the house.

We added a master suite to the upper floor, with views over the water to the north. The suite consisted of a large master bedroom, walk in robe and large ensuite and a small balcony - to help capture the cooling breezes.

The Client's also loved to entertain, so we created a large internal kitchen and connected the inside and outside of the home to allow a better flow when entertaining.

The house, on main river of the Gold Coast, was for a large family who were slowly out growing the space. The family loved the house and the location, but just needed more space!

We were added a number of bedrooms and a second living space to the upper floor. Not only need they gain the space they needed, but also gained great views of the Gold Coast's hinterland.

This was an extensive renovation with over 50% of the home demolished to allow for the creation of a very special new space. Our one aim was to create a modern, light filled space for the client, while keeping much of the character of the surrounding area.The street front of the house was restored to its original condition and then enhanced with a new picket fence and lush landscaping. The new exterior of the home was in keeping with the street front facade, and that of the surrounding neighbours, but does not give away the modern interior. A new lounge, dining, kitchen, laundry, powder room and bathroom were created. We were able to create a large modern, custom built kitchen, which suited the Client’s entertaining lifestyle.We worked closely with the client, who was an owner builder, to ensure the project meet both budget and program constraints.

This was the ideal location, north facing onto a large body of water at the end of quite street. The house had been used as a holiday home for many years, and the new owners wanted to expand to accommodate their family.

The project rejuvenated certain aspects of the home, while introducing new elements and energy saving concepts.

This is a working cattle station in the heart of Australila. After a generation the new owners decided that the managers residence could do with a renovation. The last time the house had been touched was in the 1960's.

We needed to give the house some of the basics of a modern home, such as electric lights in all rooms and internal toliets to the bathrooms.

The house now runs off a solar power station.

A semi-detached residence in Mosman Sydney, the client were looking to gain better use of the existing footprint of their home. Light penetration is an important factor in the design of this family home.

The final built form has changed the way this family lives - for the better.

The Clients moved back in on time and on budget.
