North Melbourne

Location: North Melbourne

Duration: 10 Weeks

Scope: Kitchen, Bathroom & Ensuite

Brief: This tall and narrow town house was home to a young family of five. They were in desperate need of more storage to suit their everyday lifestyle. The existing kitchen lacked ease of access for multiple users, it created a clear divide from the rest of the home and was lacking the wow factor they were looking for. The clients loved to entertain family and friends often, and were frustrated with the functionality of their existing kitchen. The new kitchen layout connects the living and dining area. The built in dining table turns into the gathering point for the family, so the usable footprint of the kitchen stays functional. Maximising the joinery to the ceiling was a must, turning the joinery along the wall opposite the floor to ceiling window made us able to utilise the space for storage further. Every inch of space was used for clever storage, this even included a recess in the island to house the cat food bowl. The bathroom areas are sleek, minimal, and functional.

Just completed a kitchen renovation, 2 bathroom upgrades and an ensuite addition with GIA. From start to finish, GIA’s professionalism and astute understanding of the renovation process help guide us through the quote, design, demo, build and completion phases.

Olivia’s design prowess and keen desire to incorporate the client’s brief has been integral in creating 4 stunning and functional spaces. The rooms are perfect for us and our growing boys! Thank you, Olivia – I hope you’re as proud as us of the rooms you’ve conceived.

Illan was always on hand to discuss the build and accounts process, and any hiccups along the way were quickly managed with minimal fuss. Greg and his team are experts in their field, and always respectful of our family when navigating the renovation in our home.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending GIA to anyone who wants a beautiful and well-executed renovation of their home. Believe all the glowing reviews – they’re Melbourne’s premier design-build-manage team.
