Brunswick West

Custom home renovation and extension project in Brunswick West

This home in Brunswick West was an entrant in the MBA and HIA awards. Staying true to the history and heritage of the primary residence, Spacemaker Home Extensions worked tirelessly with the homeowners to bring their dream home to life with this Brunswick West extension and renovation. Together, we prioritised the preservation and unique character of the home, complete with original stained-glass windows and wooden floorboards.

Prior to engaging Spacemaker Home Extensions for this renovation and extension in Brunswick West, the owners lived in the residence for four years with one child and one newborn. They loved the house and the area, but they needed more practicality and convenience that best suited their changing lives.

To honour the area and the history of the house, they were seeking a contemporary modern Australian lifestyle that blended well with the many heritage character features of this 100-year-old bungalow.


The core purpose of this internal and external custom house extension and renovation in Brunswick West was to cater to a growing family with three children that needed space to grow up and play.

In addition to a new kitchen, dining area and lounge area, they needed the convenience of more bathrooms, extra bedrooms and a parents’ retreat to cater to the needs of a larger family over the years to come.

The result: A beautiful and unique family home in Brunswick West

Before works on this project commenced, the original three-bedroom, one-bathroom home had one kitchen, one dining room and one living area. After the extensive internal and external renovations and extensions were complete, the result was a five-bedroom, three-bathroom abode with two living areas, a renovated kitchen and new decking externally.

Inside the home, Spacemaker added two new luxuriously designed bathrooms, two generous bedrooms and an atrium inspired living area that flooded the spaces at the rear of the home with natural light. They renovated the original kitchen and the dining room, along with the laundry, creating optimal space for the family to flourish.

In addition to the internal renovations and extensions, Spacemaker helped the family with setting up new services including a gas hot water unit and split cycle reverse heating and cooling with full underfloor venting.

Externally, Spacemaker extended the roof, weatherboards and a decking area that now steps down to the perfectly manicured lawn at the back of the property.

To deliver this magnificent home in Brunswick West, Spacemaker worked with Kitchens Victoria, Aspect Windows and Beaumont Tiles. Aspect Windows custom-built the windows in this home to meet the featured window specifications required and Beaumont Tiles provided all ceramic tiles and plumbing items, including Vivid slimline oval mixers and outlets, the Faith counter basin in matt (500×260), a Suttor 1690 BTW Freestanding bath and a Tetragon toilet suite. 

Spacemaker have worked with all three providers on numerous other projects across Melbourne. Our award-winning project in Port Melbourne is just one example of the work we have completed with Kitchens Victoria, our preferred supplier for our kitchen renovation and extension projects.
