For this Indooroopilly renovation, the clients wanted to achieve a relaxed, inviting and comfortable home feel. They also desired a practically designed family home with the potential to grow as the family’s needs change into the future. Lastly, the weatherboard exterior look was maintained with the installation of rainwater tanks to make use of energy and water saving features.
It now has natural light, breezy and open living areas to take advantage of the north-easterly breezes/winter sun. It has the extra benefit of being a home that is easy to clean and keep tidy.
We expanded the living area to incorporate a new kitchen and opened up this space to a large new deck. We enhanced the street appearance of the home to reflect the new interior and rear additions. On the ground floor in the future expansion stages, we will allow for the incorporation of a basic bathroom, study, and a multi-purpose space. Under the existing home, we will incorporate an improved laundry, possibly a double garage and secure storage.

We first met Dion Seminara in June 2007, when we engaged him to help us redesign our family home. It took us a while to get to the ‘go ahead’ stage of our project, due to family changes, busy family life and an interstate relocation, not to mention long delays with council approvals, but Dion and his staff were able to accommodate our time constraints and alleviate issues with council that we otherwise would not have had the time nor the know-how to deal with and resolve.
Now, four years on since completion of our renovation, we love our home, of course, but we also love that we still receive compliments on the ‘clever’ design of our family home.
We are now ready to embark on our Stage 2, and have no hesitation in wanting to engage Dion and his company once again. We have no hesitation in recommending dion seminara architecture.
