Jigsaw Projects Project 5

Character-filled to its very core, this English-style Domestic Revival home showcases the best of yesteryear, with the captivating appeal and nostalgia of art deco features. Situated in the heart of Ivanhoe, within the first A.V. Jennings estate – an area of much historical significance – Jigsaw Projects worked carefully and considerately to add a striking second-storey, renovation and extension to the home. Ensuring that the dwelling still complemented the surrounding houses and environment, the team blended this new additional storey with the home’s original external façade, allowing for internal modern living while still preserving the beauty of the past.

Inside the home, herringbone oak flooring provides a smooth, elegant surface, while an expansive open-plan living space easily accommodates for a growing family. Super white quartzite benchtops make a luxurious statement in the kitchen, with striking black cabinetry and tapware claiming stunning focal point within the space. A dedicated coffee bar is a luxurious addition the home, while a gas fireplace, and wrought iron custom art deco-style balustrade enhance the opulent, old-worldly essence.

The original floor plan for the home included compartmentalised spaces, typical to the homes built back in the 1930s. For the ground floor, the clever design retained two of the existing bedrooms, while using the rest of the floor space to accommodate for an open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas, alongside a powder room, laundry and new bathroom.

Meandering upstairs, a master bedroom is complemented by a walk-in robe and en suite, while an additional bedroom, study area and powder room are the perfect places to retreat. In particular, the home’s bathroom is a real highlight. Here, natural stone, a double basin and gold tapware honour a real sense of prestige. Ensuring the home was structurally sound was at the very forefront of Jigsaw Projects’ entire work, enabling the preservation of the iconic existing brickwork, but allowing the home to have a functional, modern persona fit for the contemporary dweller.

Established in 2008 by managing director Grant Jennings, Jigsaw Projects specialises in new home builds and large extensions, including period home extensions and renovations. Providing its services throughout Melbourne’s east and the Mornington Peninsula, the boutique residential company completes approximately eight unique projects each year.

Working alongside a team of professionals including an in-house interior designer, Jigsaw Projects prides itself on delivering individualised service throughout the entire building process, resulting in a bespoke home that delivers the space and lifestyle its clients so desire. The friendly team is able to answer any questions that arise during the building process, in a professional and timely manner. For quality craftmanship and impeccable finishes, Jigsaw Projects is an excellent choice.
