MARKET STREET, SOUTH MELBOURNE

RENOVATION & EXTENTION – 2016

WINNER – HIA RENOVATION & EXTENSION OF THE YEAR 2017

MARKET STREET was an exciting and challenging project to work on. Firstly, the sheer task at hand was to momentously transform the form and function of a tiny two room century-old Victorian dwelling on the fringe of the Melbourne CBD into an innovative and modern two-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling which also included an outdoor living and entertaining space. Secondly, the new footprint of the dwelling would occupy 100% of the 155sqm block and the challenges presented were successfully and professionally overcome by our talented team.

Our clients, a young professional couple, wanted to transform their tiny Victorian cottage which was uninhabitable in its present state, into a beautiful modern home with high-end finishes that reflected the modern and cosmopolitan location of their home. FIRST AVENUE was excited at the opportunity to work with sleek finishes like New York marble surfaces, polished concrete flooring and wall finishes, stylish full wall mosaic tiles as well as a stone staircase with feature steel balustrading that integrated seamlessly into the stone used on the kitchen bench itself.

We are so proud of this stunning home and it was a wonderful achievement to win the HIA Victorian Renovation & Extension of the Year in 2017 for our work.
