Albert Park


Albert Park – Yes Please. 

New Renovation & Extension, and a short stroll to the beach.


Period Home Restoration by Lifestyle By Design 

The tranquility of Port Phillip Bay at the end of the street, the gorgeous shaping of the 1890’s home, and an address to die for.  We’re excited about this new project at LBD.  The current weatherboards are a bit the worse for wear, the kitchen is neat but tiny, and the back deck is a bit plain, but wait until you see how this transformation comes up in 2017.  We’re calling it Period Meets Contemporary.  The chimney, the picket fence, the high ceilings and classic floorboards are staying on, but there’s a whole lot more space moving on in.

A young family is now finding this gorgeous Albert Park property and floorplan a tad too small, but we’ve worked with the designers and the owners to pre-plan the build with our usual dedication to paying close attention to detail.

There’ll be some challenges on the way as we only have access to all sides of the property from the front door, but at LBD we’re known for being reliable when it comes to keeping our customers completely satisfied.  Starting from inside the front door, Bedroom One is about to become a retreat, Bedroom Two is going to become the Master (with a WIR and a glamourous new ensuite), the Laundry and Main Bathroom are coming into the centre of the house, and a glorious new Kitchen, Meals and Living area will open-up a mountain of entertainment opportunities and a much more relaxed lifestyle.  And floor-to-ceiling stacker doors and a massive, fixed window will let the sun shine in.

Upstairs we’re constructing a brand new floor with two new bedrooms, a study nook, lots of new storage space and a sizeable third bathroom.  The external walls will have spotted gum timber battens, over a Black FC sheet to give it that contemporary look.

The owners will also experience a major change to their energy rating, with new insulation throughout, ceiling fans, solar panels and a 3000 litre underground water tank.  Not only will they have spaciousness for living in, but they’ll reduce their carbon footprint as well.

“At Lifestyle By Design, we’re proud of the work we do and our recent awards from BRW and the MBA have been really gratifying.  We’re particularly honoured to be selected by home owners and architectural designers across Melbourne because of our reputation for quality work, and because we’re renowned for completing House Renovations and Extensions on schedule.”
