Project Description

The transformation of this dated colonial-era terrace marks the team’s 4th collaboration with our astute private developer client.

Jensen provided feedback during the purchasing process to ensure our client’s goal of repositioning the property in a rapid timeframe was possible.

In order to effectively meet the demand of the astute Surry Hills buyer, Jensen worked closely with the client to develop a refined design that celebrated the building’s heritage but incorporate all the contemporary conveniences one would expect.

Key Challenges
  • Structural reconfiguration of the building to create a seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining area.
  • Altering the layout of this three story terrace to incorporate 2 additional bathrooms without altering the floorplate and avoiding a lengthy council approval process.
  • Reviving the heritage fireplaces and chimneys to bring back their old world charm.
Working with Jesse, Lochie and Victoria on our residential investment project in Surry Hills, was a dream. It was the first time working with Jensen and it could not have gone any better. The experience was so brilliant, we are doing 2 more residential developments/full renovations with them. Jensen were working on a 100-year-old terrace and during the entire build, we did not have one problem, any issues were rectified without hesitation, the trades brought on site were of the highest standards. The interior architectural design was breathtakingly beautiful and all this was done during COVID and Sydneys lockdown. Incredible work, incredible team and building company. And best of all, the work was completed on time and to budget. If you like a verbal referral I am available anytime.
