La Colina Project – renovation

This renovation project was a challenge to convert an existing brick and tile, single-level house into 2 separate apartments.
Since we couldn’t go out due to building restriction lines and council drains running along two sides of the house, we needed to go up. The result is an upstairs apartment with a downstairs apartment for the client’s mum and father-in-law.

With the help of our Structural Engineer, Fire Engineer and Acoustic Engineer we created this clever design, and the clients couldn’t be happier.

We demolished some of the existing slab to ensure the new design worked, but managed to re-use about 75% of the foundation which enabled a massive cost saving for the project.
