This residential construction project was the culmination of the client’s long-held dream to turn a dilapidated Woollahra semi into a spacious, light-filled and modern space. The original small and dark semi had significant rising damp issues which meant this house was completely demolished with the exception of the front facade. Following structural changes to address the damp issues, construction began on creating a new space, increasing the original two small bedrooms and one small bathroom floorpan to include three spacious bedrooms (the master with an ensuite), two large bathrooms, a large study and an entertaining kitchen. The redesign of the floor plate also allowed for the addition of valuable off-street parking. This project was completed on time, on budget and to the client’s satisfaction.
