Renovations

The design of renovations to character (Queenslanders) and post-war houses makes up the core of Verandah Building Designs's work. Converting these houses of eras past into functional modern day homes is a challenge that is thrived upon.

Whether the proposed addition is to be traditional or modern, our thorough understanding of how these houses were constructed assists in producing cost effective designs while still maintaining the house's character.


We have a broad knowledge of Brisbane City Council's City Plan 2014 relating to character areas, including:

  • Traditional building character overlay design & demolition codes
  • Small lot code
  • Local Plans, including:
    • Ithaca district neighbourhood plan - Paddington, Red Hill, Bardon, Auchenflower
    • Sherwood-Graceville district neighbourhood plan - Chelmer, Graceville, Sherwood, Corinda
    • Clayfield-Wooloowin district neighbourhood plan - Ascot, Clayfield, Hendra, Wooloowin
