Set on a substantial Bayside property, this modern three storey extension (including basement) and renovation transforms the original double fronted Victorian villa into a spectacular contemporary residence. The villa will be sympathetically restored to include bedrooms, bathrooms and a glamorous lounge in the original front reception room.
While sharing the generous proportions and solid materials of the Victorian, the new extension stands in direct contrast featuring extensive glazing and contemporary detailing. The stairwell and adjacent courtyard sit between old and new which includes the kitchen, meals, living on the ground floor, the master domain on the upper and the gym, cellar and sauna in the basement. A formed concrete loggia protects the northern glazing and curves to the east covering the outdoor entertaining area and sunken lounge pit.
Combining contemporary design cues with heritage features, number thirty nine is going to shape up to be one of our best projects to date. The scope is wholesome and leaves no stone unturned in the quest to revive the 1940’s post war home that exists. We will be stripping back to frame in the existing, and opening up the lower ground spaces with expansive structural propping and steel work. The entire home has high end Architectural detail by Pleysier Perkins throughout. The outdoors will be lined with beautiful greenery, crazy paving, pool and a plant list that will wow any horticulturist. This project will be one to watch over the next 9 months for sure. This progressive build will involve a raft of specialist trades and products to implement over the job. Watch this space.
Built in 1927, this stunning California Bungalow is full of it's original features, 3 metre high ceilings, original windows, flooring, walls, doors and everything else. The client has decided to restore this timber home to all its glory and extend with a modern, architectural open plan living area. We will build a second storey above the extension with 3 bedrooms, bathroom and a retreat upstairs which will seperate the original classic weatherboard and create a perfect contrast between Architectural and Heritage.

Hawthorn is a second storey extension to a stunning 1930's semi detached clinker brick home. The rear two thirds of the home have been demolished to make way for a split level extension. Going down four steps into a light filled Family/Meals room with nice open plan and a view into the Northern entertaining area with swimming pool and deck. Upstairs we have two new spacious bedrooms, bathroom and built in robes.
With a beautiful old heritage home on a large corner block, Scott and Anna would like to bring all the original features back to life, and at the same time, expand the size of their home. With an architecturally designed extension, they will have the luxury of a new home inside, and have the peace of mind that you can retain the historic character, conserve the original fabric and blend modern day architecture.
A project designed and managed by Rod Neil Architects, this beautiful weatherboard home in Surrey Hills will get an external face lift with some great new roof lines and inbuilt rooms in the existing ceiling spaces. A large second storey extension is just what this ever growing family requires with a new living and kitchen area downstairs.
We specialise in Architectural extensions and this Spanish mission is no exception to the rule. With humble beginnings and a big vision for her new home, Sarah and her designers have worked hard to come up with something that is both good looking and a functional space. The detail finds itself in every facet of the façade, with its tall Silvertop Ash cladded walls, a vast modern, light filled living room and kitchen. The bathrooms and laundry have top end finishes and we've harnessed natural light everywhere we can, keeping the house open, warm and functional.
Renovations don't always apply to period homes, and this contemporary modern millennial was well over due for an update. The brief, to freshen up and update. The result was a thoughtful combination of current modern taste and a considered approach to budget.
Terrazzo tiles are used in tactful restraint, whilst weathered brass tapware add to the contrast across all the bathrooms and feature in the kitchen, giving relief to the laminex ravine joinery.
The island bench features as a centerpiece of the kitchen, handmade american oak with an almost monolithic piece of caesarstone on top, the space is sure to be a hub for entertaining at parties and lends emphasis to a more communal mealtime.
Generally all the surfaces have seen a fresh coat of paint, with major updates to the main entrance removing a dated internal water garden and pillars. the parquetry has been revived for another ten year tenure with a coat of Loba Invisible.
Worth noting is the sizable scope of work that went into updating both bathrooms in the home, due to some poor waterproofing and ongoing damage. The result should see this home serve on looking fresh and ready for another decade of style both up to date and up to code.
Designed by our friends at Adele Bates - this apartment in Port Melbourne got a full makeover from top to toe. New French Oak floors throughout, Kitchen, Joinery, Robes, Doors, Furniture and Lighting. With such small confined spaces to work with, it has been designed really well and our clients Chris and Heath were stoked with the outcome!
Another project designed by Adele Bates, Morgan and her husband decided that they would like to bring a family heirloom (Been in the family for over a century!) back to life. A story tale once it is all complete, TCON have been asked to restore all the original features, new Bathroom, Laundry, Kitchen, Living, Herringbone floorboards throughout and some large timber windows to allow all the natural light to enter this Edwardian home. With scheduled completion due at the end of October, the painters are already inside.
Deciding to undertake a full renovation of our home that had been passed down three generations of our family was a daunting decision to make. Our next step was to find a builder that we could trust with this project, and are so grateful to have found TCON.
From our very first contact, through the planning phase to construction and even beyond the completion of this project, TCON have been remarkable in every way.
Not only did we find Tim, our project manager Stu and the entire team at TCON incredibly honest and transparent, their attention to detail and dedication to providing the finest results went beyond anything we could have hoped for. They walked us through every step of this project, and whilst we waited for the inevitable stressors that are supposed to come with renovating a home- none came. Tim and Stu cared for our home like it was their own, and together with their entire team worked tirelessly to transform our old and tired house into a beautiful hand-crafted gift for the generations in our family to come.
We can't thank them, nor sing their praises loudly enough.
With sincere gratitude,
Morgan and Markus
