Meccano House

Meccano House, 2012

The Brief:

  • To improve an already large four bedroom weatherboard home by adding cleverly designed areas tailored to specific needs and tastes.
  • Add an ensuite to the existing master bedroom
  • Remove the worn out kitchen and add a new double kitchen, one for normal use and one for the Foodie in the family.
  • The Foodie’s kitchen should be concealed behind a wall of kitchen cupboards to keep culinary secrets intact.
  • Add on to the back of the house a cosy dining family area.
  • Create a space for a large ‘work from home office’
  • Construct a TV room with a well-insulated kids retreat above.
  • Update the’ well past it’s use by date’ bathroom into a bright modern wet area.

The Result:

  • The potential of this stunning family home was realised with a diversity of needs catered for.
  • The final touches included repainted existing weather board house, an updated heating and cooling system, a new hot water service, and wiring and data cabling.
