Project Overview & Consultation

When you own a beautiful Art Deco house in a prime Mentone location, moving is not an option but a renovation is the perfect way to ensure that your home grows with your family.

Retaining all of its period charm, this much loved family home underwent a transformation that saw it go from dark and boxy to bright, airy and  perfectly modernised for family living.


Concept & Design

The majority of the renovation took place under the existing roof line. The floorplan was expertly redesigned, by Murley design, to create a beautiful flow from the front porch all the way to the newly created alfresco area. 


What started life as a collection of closed off living and dining spaces was transformed into an expansive family zone complete with gourmet kitchen, showcasing the best of indoor-outdoor living. 


This project made use of every available space to ensure that the finished home was perfectly suited to every member of the family. The master bedroom was extended to the fence line creating the perfect space for a luxurious ensuite while the previously rundown garage was transformed into a self-contained cabana perfect for providing the extra space every family home craves.


Project Management

As a homeowner, renovating can be overwhelming. Despite the best laid plans, trusting a builder to bring your dream home to life can be stressful and exciting all at once.


We pride ourselves on our ability to instil confidence in our clients and guide them through the renovation process, no matter how uncertain they may feel. This project endured a number of variations as we worked closely with the owners to refine their vision of what their perfect family home looked like.


Our project management software allowed us to schedule and reschedule the project to ensure that the client’s requests were accommodated while moving towards completion. We were also able to provide ongoing advice on budget conscious alternatives without compromising on quality.
