This stunning four-bedroom reno effortlessly oozes fun and functionality with a transformation that honours colour, character and coming together.
Shared with their two children, foodies Pete (of season two MasterChef fame) and Erika enlisted us to convert their Elsternwick address into a home that marries heritage and hosting. Occupied by the family since 2015, their brief was straightforward: blend in sympathetic yet modern upgrades (with the removal of dated Greco-Roman features,) while demolishing and rebuilding the back of the residence for a space that lends itself to spacious family life and an abundance of natural light.
Building on our existing friendship, the family approached us to lead the project. Having bonded over a love of cooking, the kitchen was approached with sanctity, resulting in an outcome that lives up to any meticulous home chef’s wildest culinary dreams. Complete with a scullery and custom herb box suspended outside the kitchen window, it’s this sentiment of entertaining that echoes within the spirit of the street; with one beloved neighbour known to drop espresso and homemade pizzas to the trades throughout the build.
