Parkview – Athlone Road
We were approached by former Clients to redesign and further refurbish their existing home in Parkview. Having successfully completed a significant alteration to the same home 10 years previously, the long term relationship and working ethos had already been established, so preparing for and building the house as it is now was a comfortable evolution.
The original house was built in 1921 and whilst it had some elements of character, most of the interior of the house had been altered in the late 90 ’s. We retained the portion of the original house built in 1921 but modernised it internally and externally and added 243 sqm of new building bringing the total area of the house to 573 sqm.
Whilst the brief was clear in it required more accommodation, the budget was not The Client was concerned about overcapitalising in the leafy Parkview area. As a result, we found ourselves with a challenge ahead with having done in excess of 8 different concept plans including looking at alternative properties in the surrounding areas such as Westcliff. Eventually we agreed on an easy flowing home accommodating all the Clients needs within a suitable budget
