Blending preservation with elevation.
We specialise in renovations and extensions to existing heritage houses. As experts in making the most of small living spaces, we can work with you take the best elements of Victorian heritage living, and create a property that really works for you on a functional level.
We particularly love the Victorian heritage style — the symmetry and height of these beautiful old homes — and creating design solutions that bring them to life with light, air, extra living spaces and gardens.
With a wealth of experience in Heritage restorations and refurbishments, we can help you retain the character features and appearance of a heritage property, and integrate the benefits of modern living to meet your desired style.
Heritage home renovation
As the most densely populated cities in Australia, space to build in both Melbourne and Sydney’s inner suburbs is limited. With their proximity to the city, parks, and vibrant nightlife, these sought-after areas often lack adequate space to build, with home owners instead choosing to renovate or extend existing properties.
These charming heritage homes offer a fantastic opportunity to preserve the character and connection to the local environment, whilst optimising the house for 21st century living.
We specialise in utilising limited space, developing innovating designs to maximise the property, and blending innovative new build practices with heritage structures.
Monolith house was an ‘owner/ builder’ project, so the design had to be simple enough for the client to engage in the build process, yet with enough finesse to sell upon completion. The architect and client worked closely together to resolve complications with practical solutions.
“Through every aspect of their practice, from project design to client relations, the Wexhaus team understands the complexities of the creative process, and the realities needed to achieve a vision.”Gemma T
