Balgowlah House 01


The transformation of this brick Californian bungalow has been elevated with ground and first-floor additions, resulting in a timeless and sophisticated residence.

Nestled within the quiet and picturesque streets of Balgowlah, this bungalow now boasts a seamlessly integrated first-floor addition, designed to complement the existing architecture seamlessly.

The first floor has been thoughtfully curated into a tranquil parents’ retreat, featuring a spacious master bedroom, walk-in robes, and an elegant en-suite. Additionally, a meticulously designed study offers a serene space for work or relaxation.

But we didn’t stop there. We reimagined the carport, infusing it with style and functionality by incorporating an attached studio. This versatile space provides endless opportunities for creativity or leisure pursuits.

Throughout the design process, our clients expressed a desire for the first-floor addition to blend harmoniously with the original charm of the bungalow. With meticulous attention to detail and a dedication to architectural integrity, we achieved just that – seamlessly marrying old-world charm with contemporary luxury.

From the inviting facade to the meticulously crafted interiors, every aspect of this renovation reflects our commitment to creating timeless and functional living spaces.

At M+M Architects, we take pride in transforming dreams into reality, and this project stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence in design and craftsmanship.
