MPD Architects

Project Brief

Our clients wished to remove an old 1960s rear extension and replace it with a 2 storey rear addition in keeping with the Victorian façade. The new construction required a new kitchen, dining, family, bathroom, WC, laundry and terrace, in addition to a ground floor conversion into one bedroom secondary dwelling.

Challenges Overcome

A heritage listed house presents its own challenges to ensure existing structures are preserved and new construction carries details deserving of the original craftsmanship.


“Our house was built 120 years ago and was the unfortunate victim of a number of additions, modification and renovations over that time. The cumulative effect was the house was in desperate need of major restorative work. When we started the process, we were very apprehensive about our own lack of knowledge of the building process as well as timelines and budget blow outs. James, Ann-Maree and their team put us at ease very early in the process. The work started quickly, and each week we could see progress. The project was finished very close to time and any budget overruns were discussed ahead of time so there were no surprises. The workmanship of the entire team was excellent – down to the smallest of details. James was always available to answer questions and make recommendations. Even after handover, James and Ann-Maree have been very responsive to any queries. In addition to the above, our neighbours have commented how professional the team were – they appreciated being updated and informed when major works were to occur during the build. We highly recommend Brickwood Building – we are very pleased with our “new” home and will enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you to James, Ann-Maree and your team..”
