Stylish, spacious and modern bungalow extensions and reno

Instantly recognisable yet infinitely versatile, a bungalow home is perfect for any family. And although the bungalow style does have its defining traits, you’ll find bungalows across Melbourne that have been melded with other architectural styles. 

Our designers adore working on bungalows, and designing a contemporary bungalow extension always makes for an exciting project. What are you thinking — perhaps a ground-floor rear extension, or a second-storey dormer extension or loft conversion? Do you want to add natural light to the bedrooms or improve flow across the living spaces?

One of the defining characteristics of the bungalow is the verandah, which provides a sheltered space to relax and unwind. Perhaps a ground-floor verandah extension is just the thing you’re after.

However ambitious your extension ideas for your existing bungalow are, Supa Group’s specialists have the skills and experience to see them through. Get in touch, and let’s book a no-obligation Free Design Consultation.

Key features of Bungalow homes

Melbourne’s homeowners love a bungalow, and you’ll see several variations of this style as you drive around the suburbs. Here are a few popular favourites.

Californian bungalows

Typically boasting the blazing red bricks Melbourne architecture is famous for, these low-set single-storey houses also feature a gently pitched roof that runs down to the covered verandah.

Mission bungalows

Inspired by Spanish-American architecture, these bungalow houses are instantly identified by their flat roof and arched doorways and windows.

Tudor bungalows

A mix of Tudor aesthetics and bungalow layouts; these homes integrate the delicate woodwork and monochromatic exteriors typical of the Tudor style.

Bungalow home heritage overlays

Practically every council in Melbourne has heritage overlays, and each comes with its own set of rules and restrictions. While these restrictions will affect your extension project, that doesn’t mean they have to inhibit them. Councils simply want to protect the heritage of their period buildings; with over 45 years in the business, Supa Group knows how to work with councils to meet their needs and our clients’ desires.

Trust our specialists to explain what can and can’t be done to your existing external walls, or how we can alter your bungalow's existing footprint. Let’s explore new ideas for your rear bungalow extension or your loft renovation. Together, we’ll settle on a plan that will receive council planning permission and still exceed all of your expectations. Book your Free Design Consultation today.

Frequently asked questions about bungalow home extensions in Melbourne

Is a modern extension to a bungalow expensive?

The cost of the job depends on the demands of the job. We don’t like to hand out ballpark figures based on ideas and sketches — book in for a Free Design Consultation, and after that, our team will give you a specific quote based on the ideas we’ve discussed.

Can I continue living in my bungalow while you work?

You’re welcome to continue living at home while construction occurs. However, you can only stay as long as your bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are safe to access. If our work needs to restrict those areas, you’ll have to find alternative accommodation until they’re safe again.

We’ll provide you with a detailed schedule well ahead of time, so that you can plan your accommodation needs.

How does Supa Group plan a modern bungalow extension?

All of our extension and renovation projects are developed through the same three-step process:

  1. The Design Phase: our design specialists collaborate with you to sketch out and refine your ideas, offering insights and variations to get you to a satisfying final blueprint.
  2. The Contract Phase: we get our paperwork in order, applying for council permits and signing on contractors. Let us know if you’ve got contractors you want on the job, and we’ll bring them on.
  3. The Build Phase: construction begins and ends on schedule and to budget. 

We’ll guarantee our work with a 10-year quality assurance promise. Contact us if you’d like to discuss our process or our fixed timeline and price guarantees.
