A Vintage Makeover

Extensions & Renovations

The aim was to create a space, that spoke true to the simplicity of the original design.

This project involved updating an original 1930’s semi by renovating the original bathroom and kitchen/dining area and building a new balcony, rumpus room, second bathroom and laundry with the goal of creating a light-filled modern living space while staying true to the simplicity of the original design.


By incorporating a natural soft colour scheme, and high-quality finishes, the space exudes an inviting and cozy ambience.

  • New Flooring of spotted gum creates a continuous flow throughout the house

  • The large sliding doors in the lounge, dining and kitchen area provide a seamless transition to the garden allowing for plenty of natural light

  • V-joint ceilings in the lounge and bathrooms

  • The kitchen features a large stainless steel bench with an integrated double sink, American oak cabinetry with a stone island bench

  • The Master bedroom has been enlarged to accommodate an ensuite bathroom

  • A new private study/fourth bedroom has been created

  • Outside features a landscaped garden with paved entertaining area and undercover BBQ space along with a new garage


“We first became aware of MATTBUILD Group when they completed a project across the road.

We observed how well the team worked, while minimising impact to the surrounding neighbours and kept them in mind when we wanted to start our own renovation project. Our neighbours provided a glowing reference and we soon engaged MATTBUILD Group for our own renovation. We could not be happier with our choice of builder.

Our project was completed on time and on budget but most importantly we really felt like we worked as a team with our project manager and site supervisor and the whole MATTBUILD Group crew. Our project became a collaboration, and our house is infinitely better because of this. We didn’t work with an architect, and the experience and guidance that we received from Simon and Nathan meant design choices that they assisted with, produced a more functional house, bespoke to our needs. With endless patience, nothing was ever an issue for anyone at MATTBUILD Group that we engaged with. Trades were always there when expected, and also provided us with guidance to ensure that we achieved the best results with our design.

If we do decide to take on another renovation project, we wouldn’t look anywhere else.”
