Renovate your retro 1970s house for 21st-century living

Just like the music, clothes and the hair, the architectural styles of the houses built in the 1970s are entirely unique. But as exciting as the 70s were, some things should stay in the last century.

If you’re the owner of a 1970s-style home, we’re sure you’ve noticed a few interior design aspects and structural issues you want to update. Supa Group can help. Our 1970s house extension and renovation designs allow you to create new functional spaces, refine the layout and flow of your home, and even add on a new storey to suit your growing family. 

Rest assured, you won’t have to lose any of your home’s 70s charm if you don’t want to. Start with a free consultation with our design team.

Key features of 1970s style homes

Our 1970s house renovation specialists can preserve, update or remove any of the key aesthetic features of your house, giving you a home that reflects your needs and personality.

Extensive glazing

Let the sunshine in with tall feature windows all around the property, especially in warm communal spaces like dining rooms and living areas.

Single-storey designs

Wide open single-storey designs were very popular in the 70s — and still are today. However, you might enjoy the space a second-storey extension can offer.

Geometric shapes

70s homes adored accentuating their angular features, such as skillion and lean-to roofs, or facades, window architraves and skirting boards with unique geometric designs.

1970s home heritage overlays

Melbourne’s heritage overlays exist to preserve the area's architectural history. Heritage overlays usually only apply to homes built before WWII, meaning that most — but not all — 70s homes will be exempt.

If you are unsure whether your home falls under a heritage overlay, get in touch with Supa Group. We'll investigate what you can and can't do when renovating your 1970s home. We'll also help you design an extension that meets any and all council requirements.

Frequently asked questions about 70s Modern extensions in Melbourne

What are the phases of a 70s Modern home extension?

Our 70s Modern extensions projects follow a three-step process:

  1. The Design Phase gives us time to work with you to design the perfect extension to your Melbourne 70s Modern home, giving you more space to grow.
  2. The Contract Preparation Phase is where we prepare all the necessary documents and permits needed by yourself, our business, and the local council where you live.
  3. The Build Phase is where our contractors build your 70s Modern extension to exacting standards. Quality is guaranteed for 10 years following the work.

For specific details around estimated completion times, it's best to book a Free Design Consultation with Supa Group.

Can I live in my home while the renovation takes place?

You can continue living in your home provided that you can access the basic amenities the family needs for living. If the main bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms are affected by your 70s Modern home renovation, you may need to evacuate for the duration.
