Renovations & Extensions

We develop creative alteration and addition solutions to respond to your requirements and make the best use of your house and site throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

Home improvement is another aspect of architecture that Mark Lawler Architects have gained particular expertise, evidenced through the numerous successful projects we have completed. Many clients may initially believe that adding to or altering their existing home has less financial benefit than building a new house, but this is not always the case. Our role as Architects is to make a clear assessment of an existing building, provide a solution to minimise the costs involved, and create a functioning, aesthetically pleasing transformation.

Many people love the area they live in, and would prefer not to move. Others have an attachment to their home, even though creating additional space has become a necessity.

Clients commonly ask if a renovation is really a feasible and economical alternative to gain bigger, more practical living areas, a more functional kitchen space, additional bedroom areas or bathrooms. The creative thinking and planning we provide can often radically change our clients’ perceptions of what can be achieved. With our spatial awareness, structural understanding, and by analysing site conditions, we often come up with new ideas not previously considered.

Renovation & Extension Projects

We can create additions to a building to give a fresh new appearance and bring a home into the 21st century. Alternatively we can seamlessly integrate design concepts with the existing building to retain the original integrity and character.
