Professional small builder/renovator
The foundations for the first Australian Federation-style home were laid in the late 19th century, just as the nation was coming into its modern identity prior to the First World War. Pulling elements from British and American architectural fads and Art Nouveau, the Federation-style house design is ornate and impressive yet simple enough to be managed by a small family.
The Federation house is now an icon of our national architectural landscape. But, being over a century old, many of Melbourne’s Federation homes require extensions and renovations to remain structurally sound and suit modern lifestyles.
At Supa Group, we can add space and the benefits of modernity to your home without compromising the historic appeal. By collaborating with our team of designers and builders, you'll be able to achieve all the aspirations you have for your property.

Federation houses in Melbourne reflect the grand ambitions of the young country that built them.
Many federation homes feature beautiful red brick facades, ridges of white mortar, and impressive woodwork on the verandas.
Built long before electric heating was standard, Federation homes boast working fireplaces that can now be turned into feature walls.
Federation homes draw inspiration from the earlier Art Nouveau architectural style, and often favour the floral flourishes and curved lines of the European style.

It all begins with a no-obligation Free Design Consultation with Supa Group’s friendly experts.
Federation-style homes are over a century old, and many of them are protected by a heritage overlay. This means you'll have to go through the council and get approval before making substantive changes to the property. All renovations to heritage houses need approval before proceeding.
Our team at Supa Group has years of experience working with local councils around Melbourne. We can find out if your home has a heritage overlay, asses your property, and find the best way of navigating any council restrictions for heritage projects.
