“The Parlington Project”
This first post of many within the Parlington Project series is to highlight one of our recently started home renovations in the lovely inner Melbourne suburb of Canterbury.
Masterplan Builders worked hand in hand with Dan Webster Architecture (DWA – @dwarchitecture) on this project throughout the design and documentation process. The brief was to restore a home that was tired, and no longer suitable to our clients lifestyle. The design proposes a substantial reconfiguration of the interior spaces, with a small extension to the rear. It gives respect to the edwardian home at the entry, front sitting room and master suite, before making a transition into a more contemporary interior finish and layout towards the rear of the home.
The new open plan kitchen, living and dining area maximises the northern light, and opens up onto a new alfresco area overlooking the pool and pool pavilion. The edwardian era of homes were extremely well built and detailed, and appropriate for the time, but as the modern families needs and lifestyle has evolved over the past few decades, the spaces within a home, and the way they are used has also evolved. The homes interior is about simplicity of form and materials, with a timeless and sophisticated edge to it.
Currently Masterplan Builders are stripping back the original details and preparing to remodel the homes structure under the careful guidance of one of our senior site supervisors, Waine Laidlaw.
Masterplan Builders will be working with DWA throughout the building process of this restoration which is projected to take between 10 to 12 months. Stay tuned for many more updates and photos as we bring to life this beautiful home restoration over the next year.
