Est Living Features Park Street Residence

When it comes to period restorations for traditional Victorian homes, B.E Architecture believes that it is important to embrace the original architecture of the building. We look to emphasise the passage of time that is evident in the existing structure where possible. When restoration is not an option, we look for ways of rebuilding new elements in a way that is both modern and referential to the original period detailing.

Est Living Magazine has recently taken a closer look at B.E Architecture’s restoration and extension of a Victorian house at the Park Street ResidenceRead the full article on their website.

James Street Construction Progress

One of the answers we have developed over the last few years is…

Farm plan at property in Flinders

B.E architecture believes the best results in rural properties come from considering all requirements at the onset. The first plans look to identify the best areas for farming, livestock, robust landscaping, and equipment as well as the ideal location for the dwelling. While some of these elements will be added over time, we find the groundwork is best laid early.

We have recently begun working through these zoning diagrams, working with farm planners and consultants to address a new property in Flinders with substantial acreage. The original diagrams will greatly inform the design for the house.
