COREEN HOUSE
WYNNUM

Existing house lifted and renovation

This previously small house on a double block in Wynnum was desperate for a revamp to better utilise it’s location and stunning views over the backyard and creek. The client’s lived in Melbourne and had previously engaged an architect local to them, who designed a nice extension but fell hugely out of budget.

Invilla with a better local knowledge proposed raising and building under, with only minor extensions for the rear alfresco and side garages. This more economical way of gaining extra space meant the brief of 4 bedrooms, big open plan living area, large alfresco leading out to a pool, double garage and retention of the character living room and verandah upstairs could be achieved within budget.

The result is a stunning Queenslander which blends the traditional character and modern elements in an understated way, sitting proudly among other recently renovated houses on the street.
