A re-think of the internal spaces of this home in Russell Lea has transformed what was once a dark interior into a light filled home that now flows seamlessly to the rear yard. One of the design challenges was to open up the rear of the home so as to flow to the rear yard whilst keeping the existing pool which was positioned close to the rear wall of the house . By introducing new windows and doors and decking up to the edge of the pool we were able to open out the rear of the home whereby the pool and entertaining spaces flow from inside to outside. Also we were able to create a very strong visual link from the new kitchen to the outside entertaining spaces and pool.

“Our renovation was a two year process from engagement to completion. We found Playoust Churcher Architects to be thoughtful, creative, attentive and professional in all aspects of the process.

Brett Churcher and Ken Barnes were able to take our initial ideas and develop them by providing well-conceived design options as well as recommending quality and reliable tradesmen and suppliers.

Renovating can be a very stressful time, particularly as this was our first project so we needed much guidance, advice and a good working relationship, this is where the management of the project was vital.

The project was managed by Ken who kept on top of every detail throughout the whole project, gave good suggestions, assisted with sourcing suppliers and ensured the quality of the building works were kept to the very high standards he set.

We are thrilled with the finished project and are enjoying living in our newly created house.

We naturally have no hesitation in recommending Playoust Churcher Architects to anyone looking to embark on a building or renovating project.”
