Camberwell Project

When the clients approached Period Extensions & Designs to renovate their home, we were delighted and the brief was as follows;

The clients wanted to keep the front 3 rooms then create a Kitchen/Dining/ Living area that is filled with light and with a layout that flows well. They requested for an ensuite and bathroom that both have windows (not skylights) and didn't mind if the laundry is European in style. They plan to live in the home for a long time and would like to raise a family in this home as they love the location.

Imagining their life together, and currently studying, incorporating natural light was the highest priority within the design. There was space to build a further 10 meters plus 25% as there was an existing wall. We were able to site the extension along the southern boundary thus maximising the northern aspect as well. We did have to rake in the ceiling, but the style of the house is traditional and seamlessly blends the old with the new. Wainscoting and parquetry flooring helped achieve this conventional look and feel. However the materials are not. The mother of pearl tiles in the kitchen and ensuite were not designed for it, so they had to be fixed to boards and then be put in position. The tapware was dipped giving it a gold glow, thus resulting in a warm, light home.

Renovation Description

The kitchen is fitted with white cupboards providing plenty of storage space. The white stone island bench top provides more counter space for cooking. The lounge and dining room is now a functional open-plan area offering a spacious environment for the family to enjoy. The new light fixtures in the ceiling add more brightness to the room. The bedrooms are bright and furnished with dark wood pieces and tropical decor giving the space that holiday feel. Both bedrooms have a vintage fireplace providing warmth to the rooms. The bathroom is fitted with gold fixtures and the vanity of dark wood against the white tiled walls adding contrast.

Kitchen, Living, & Dining

Dark wood parquetry flooring to create an Indonesian inspired vibe. Open plan living incorporates all areas for entertainment, family and guests. New white cupboards and stone top benches provide plenty of storage space, while the stone top island gives more space for cooking. Woven baskets feature on the walls, whilst spherical light fittings hang from the roof to add functionality and style to the area.


White walls and dark wood feature in the bedrooms for the Indonesian design. Balinese teak for the blinds ads a calming touch, reinforcing tranquillity in the bedrooms.


Large mirrors, marble benches and golden taps create a sense of luxury. The wood and scented oils remind us of the island getaway.
