Fabric Quarterly Feature - Style and substance

The renovation of a 50s bungalow instils a contemporary addition and revives a mid-century beauty, setting it up to the challenge of modern family living. A place to call home.

A young family of four sought to restore their mid-century Mount Hawthorn worker’s cottage, while adding floor space that would render it more suitable for a modern lifestyle.

This meant retaining and restoring the 1950s features within the original section of the home, and creating a defined delineation between the cottage and the modern addition. Warren and Jae also requested the home remain single storey, with plenty of storage added in, a pool, lawn and spaces that could accommodate large family functions.
