Heritage A Piece Of History,
Heritage-listed homes are important remnants of our nation’s history. Our client wanted to retain a piece of this history but was open to different design styles to give the home its own character not only by getting a facelift but have usable facilities.
Homes of this age come with their own problems and Gardner Construction we able to work within the restrictions to alter this heritage-listed home.
The original plans were a small renovation however partnering with the knowledge of our construction and design team, we assisted our client to follow all guidelines of a heritage renovation to enhance the status of the property and enable them to increase the size of the renovation to make the space more useful.
The Gardner Construction team brought this renovation to life, pairing with Gardner Design who provided the client with the help and expertise of interior choices creating useful bright spaces. Working on the front facade we ensured we did not try to alter the home’s heritage features, but rather complement them with the restored fret work and painting.
Internally Gardner Construction renovated the non-functional mouldy dirt filled out-building into a new open planed kitchen. We created an open-plan living in the rear of the home, installed bi-fold doors to connect to the outdoors and the addition of a beautiful pool surrounded by limestone pavers, making the space useful and inviting.
