Professional small builder/renovator
Developed over a century between the reigns of King George I and King George IV, Georgian homes value grandeur, space and symmetry above all else. The stately architecture captured the attention of Australia’s burgeoning upper class during our nation’s growing years, and today, you’ll see some truly impressive Georgian properties dotted across Melbourne’s more affluent suburbs.
Look at a Georgian-style home, and you’ll notice its design walks a fine line between practical simplicity and detailed splendour. The building is boxy, with clean lines, a symmetrical facade and a simple silhouette, yet its delicate flourishes add a sense of nuance that holds the eye. To renovate or extend a Georgian home in Melbourne, architects must meet the homeowner's modernising needs while complementing the integrity of the Georgian style.
Supa Group’s renovation specialists specialise in balancing style and practicality. With over 45 years in the building industry, we’ve designed stunning renovations and added seamless extensions to many Georgian-style houses across Melbourne. Get in touch, and let’s plan an exciting new project together.
The Georgian style wants to command attention, which is why it favours the solid, imposing presence imparted by brick and stone facades.
Externally, the style is defined by a central front door with an even number of windows on either side. Sometimes, that symmetry is carried to the interior with a mirrored floor plan.
What is grandeur without space? Georgian homes boast ample entertainment and living areas on the ground level, as well as spacious bedrooms up above.

Period homes like these may be protected under a heritage overlay designed to preserve their historical significance. Depending on the age of your Georgian house, it may fall under one of these overlays. If it does, your council will almost certainly impose restrictions on the kinds of work we can do on it.
However, remember that your council’s objective is to preserve the integrity and beauty of historic listed buildings. The renovations or extensions we plan for your Georgian home can and should share that goal — not impede it. Supa Group’s team has significant experience navigating heritage restrictions across Melbourne, and we’ve earned the trust of the councils we’ve worked under. We’ll work with you and your council to ensure your project runs smoothly.
