Norwood Project – Steve & Deb Wise
Every home renovation is different and throws up challenges. This Norwood renovation and extension is an example of how Golding Projects Adelaide can work in with its clients to achieve a seamless process that delivers on time and budget.
In this case, our clients had extensive experience in developing large-scale commercial projects. They brought with them their own specialist consultants, designers and craftspeople. We project managed and built to their specific brief for a complete renovation of their return verandah villa plus a large, modern rear extension.
Our client brought planning approval which we obtained full development approval for them after co-ordinating working drawings and engineering specifications. The challenge was to satisfy council that the proposed extension would not adversely affect the adjoining street treescape.
Renovation of the villa included removing the existing return verandah and rebuilding it in new materials in exactly the same proportions, including laying new tessellated tiles.
On such an old and sensitive building this involved careful demolition by hand. As part of the renovation, we replaced roofing and repointed the chimneys and sandstone exterior. Along the way, we increased the height of the existing cellar to create a spacious wine storage facility.
The existing bedroom gained a new ensuite with quality fixtures and fittings while the major extension included a bathroom, kitchen, meals, family room and garage. A finishing touch was the rear courtyard with entertaining area and water feature.
The end result was a contemporary update that retained all the beauty of the original classic villa while refocusing the property to meet the needs of a modern family.
To achieve this we co-ordinated a range of specialist consultants and trades, including interior and lighting designers, cabinet and furniture craftspeople along with carpenters, plumbers and electricians.
