Ardrie Renovation wins Best Renovation/Addition $500,000-$750,000

The Construct Melbourne team were thrilled for their Ardrie Project to be announced as the winning project under the Best Renovation/Addition category. The project was a major renovation and extension of a heritage-listed Federation brick home in Malvern East. The rear of the existing home was removed, with the home's interior undergoing a complete renovation. A modern extension was built onto the rear of the home, housing a large open plan kitchen and living area, study and butlers pantry. The new space opens to a large timber deck and lawn area surrounding the luxury in-ground pool. A spacious garage and carport were built onto the side of the property for added functionality. The success of this project lay in the seamless joining of the existing heritage-listed home with the brand new modern rear extension, including on the exterior where the old red bricks meet the modern black cladding.
