Bishop House

Commendation Residential Design: Alterations & Additions $200K-$500K

Designer: Maxa Design Pty Ltd
Builder: Corrben Homes
Photographer: Rachel Lewis Photography
Location: Mitcham, VIC

Staying within the confines of the existing single-storey home, this extension manages to transform a tired brick veneer. Combining improved thermal performance, a freeing up of spatial planning, and providing views to both the natural environment and city views from the first floor extension, the original house is almost unrecognisable. The design outcome achieves a light-filled contemporary modern home whilst retaining many elements of the original. This beautifully articulated building nestles comfortably within the original garden setting, resulting in a totally transformed and reinvigorated family home that has revived the clients’ love for their home.
