Exquisite Home Renovation Preserving Details From the Art & Crafts Movement

architecture exterior Project Canny Sackville Exquisite Home Renovation Preserving Details From the Art & Crafts Movement Situated in one of the most sought after streets in Kew, Melbourne, Australia, this home has undergone a renovation in the 1980’s which required updating. The front was rather well preserved and had retained existing period features from its ‘Art & Crafts era’ movement, such as the timber wall and ceiling panels and flooring. Canny Design was appointed to design and construct a new extension and restore the existing dwelling by enhancing all the original features.

The client had a distinctive vision for their renovation, to maintain the presence of the front of the home whilst allowing contemporary elements to integrate with the beautiful existing heritage features. The place needed redesigning in order to accommodate a family of six – allowing ample room for four very active, sports-loving children and a retreat for visiting friends and relatives. Each zone needed to adapt to the changing needs of the growing family. Without a doubt, the half court underground basketball court with 6-metre high ceilings was one of the most unique features in the design brief. The children, all being avid basketballers, required this space and the room above with the viewing platform creates a wonderful aspect to see the children play.

In the outdoor area, an L-shaped swimming pool incorporates a lap pool, spa, water feature and children’s pool – the pool was designed and built by Integrated Pools and is fully tiled and each of the three swimming areas are able to be individually heated via remote iPad/iPhone technology.
