What was once a small, tired Californian Bungalow, has been transformed into a large, light-filled, family-friendly home. The original property had a dark, dated interior with a congested floor plan.
The block size was very generous so we were able to utilize that and do a substantial extension. The original front façade the owners fell in love with has been restored as with a few internal features, beyond that, the house feels contemporary in nature and boasts a large open plan kitchen, meals, and living room which looks out onto the rear garden beyond.
KDC worked closely with the owners from the very beginning, including space planning, joinery design, exterior colour scheme, tendering the project, project management and furniture / styling.
"From the bottom of the hearts, we would like to thank Katherine for the amazing work she has done in creating our home. Not only was Katherine great at working to our budget, but she was able to think outside the box and create warm and inviting spaces that we hadn’t imagined possible. Katherine was always mindful of designing a home that would suit our family and lifestyle. Her ability to make the most of space & natural light is definitely one of her real talents. Katherine is a fantastic communicator and listener. She would always respond to emails and phone calls promptly and was also fabulous in explaining the building process to us. Thank you again ‘Katherine Charlton Design’ for designing our dream home."
