Second Story Renovation In Brighton (Melbourne, Victoria)

The Brighton 2 is an original California Bungalow built in the early 1900’s. The building needed to cater for a growing family of six and provide extra space for entertaining. The brief involved adding four single bedrooms upstairs, all with balconies for outside access and to tie in with the downstairs design. Additional living spaces upstairs allowed family members to relax or entertain away from the rest of the house.

The garden/pool area was extended; a study, formal dining, living areas and master bedroom were all crafted and kept on ground level. Opened bi-fold doors provide a 180-degree view of the pool area and an abundance of light and space.

The result is a seamless look that runs from top to bottom, and a design that is intelligent and able to accommodate large numbers, without leaving behind the sense that a renovation actually took place.
