Below is another example of how a property in Sydney was able to completely open up the rear of the house to closely connect the outdoor area to the interior. It’s a great way of enjoying the outdoor space, while at the same time being able to shade yourself from the heat. Added to this, you are able to draw the outside light deeper into your property.

Stylish House Gets A Sustainable And Energy-Efficient Extension

Home renovations are inherently more eco-friendly and economically viable than building an entire new structure by demolishing the old house. But this beautiful home in Mosman, Sydney takes the sustainability quotient to an entirely different level by ensuring that its latest design is as eco-friendly as possible. Instead of opting for costly, high-end gadgets to give the home a green makeover…

What Inspires our Home Extension Designs?

We have always had a love of buildings and we’re lucky in Melbourne to have an inspiring collection ranging from old grand and historically important structures, right the way through to modern, cutting edge designs.

Flinders Street Station

Flinders Street Station in Melbourne, Australia

Stand beneath the clocks of Melbourne’s iconic railway station, as tourists and Melburnians have done for generations. Take a train for outer-Melbourne explorations, join a tour to learn more about the history of the grand building, or go underneath the station to see the changing exhibitions that line Campbell Arcade.

We feel privileged to be in a position to pursue the artistic embodiment of the parameters set by our customers to deliver a project they can be proud of. We enjoy the creative process and once a design has been agreed, we strive to provide the very best building experience in Melbourne.

It’s immensely rewarding to develop a close working relationship with our customers and we understand the importance of ensuring our customers are aware of the overall process.

You only have to look around Melbourne to be inspired by the variety of design that’s available to us. Melbourne has a thriving design scene and it’s certainly something that helps give Melbourne its identity (although some public installations, such as the Vault have been rather controversial).

No opera house. No Bondi Beach. No sunning celebs. This is Melbourne, home of Australia’s most thriving design scene.

The Vault at Melbourne, Australia

A city for which a signature building is inappropriate? You’re about to run afoul of the tourism board.

Vault is perhaps Melbourne’s most reviled piece of public art. Rechristened the “Yellow Peril” when it debuted downtown in 1980, Ron Robertson-Swann’s work has moved twice since then. Now it resides outside the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Puffing billy - train from Melbourne to Gembrook

Many families look to upgrade the size of their property when looking for more space to accommodate an expanding family base. Some families are choosing to move further away from built up and pricey areas, towards the suburbs and even further afield to places such as Gembrook. A once stagnated population, people are noticing just how close Gembrook is to Melbourne.

The Gem On Melbourne’s Outskirts That’s Getting New Life

For a township of 2000 people, Gembrook in Melbourne’s outer south-east packs a punch, largely thanks to Puffing Billy which terminates on its main street.

“The makeover of Main Street is attracting buyers into Gembrook,” says Aaron Day, of Bell Real Estate. “That, and the views of Warburton and the Dandenongs that you just can’t get anywhere else.”
“It’s one of the few suburbs in the area where you can buy land of 100 acres,” says Day.

“A lot of locals work within 30-40 mins of Gembrook, whether it’s in the Pakenham/Berwick direction or the Emerald/Burwood Highway direction. Gembrook is well connected.” Gordon says.

It’s no surprise people are looking elsewhere to settle down as property prices in Melbourne continue to surge in 2017 unlike Perth which is currently experiencing a real slump in the property market.

Perth’s Housing Slump’s A Lesson For Sydney and Melbourne’

Unlike the Sydney and Melbourne property surge, house prices in Perth have plummeted, while unemployment and the cost of living have increased, catching out owners and investors.

‘Perth is on its knees’

Homes at the top end and on the urban fringe are the worst affected by falling prices.

Perth property valuer Gavin Hegney said the situation was the “reverse” of what was happening on the east coast, and lessons should be learned.

“Western Australia was infallible in 2006 and 2007, we were really booming,” he said.

“We had a second kick along in 2012, and at that stage the Sydney and Melbourne markets were pretty well on their knees.

“Today Perth is on its knees.
