Bring your mid-century modern home into the new millennium

What is mid-century modern architecture? The name can confuse: are these homes supposed to reflect the last century or the modern one? In a way, both. 

Mid-century design arose in the middle of the 20th century, gaining popularity from the 30s to the 60s, and aimed for a futuristic architectural style that reflected that generation’s growing hope for a progressive future. Frank Lloyd Wright and the avant-garde artists of the Bauhaus movement largely influenced the mid-century modern style. When they were built, many dismissed the original mid-century house style as a fad — but they’ve well and truly stood the test of time.

In the future-focused spirit of the style, Supa Group can help you renovate and extend your Melbourne mid-century homes with a more contemporary layout. Whether extending your existing living room or renovating your bedrooms, we improve functionality while preserving the aesthetics of the original structure.Why don’t we begin with a Free Design Consultation?

Key features of mid-century modern homes

Melbourne’s mid-century homes are renowned for their utterly unique designs. Even without a full grasp of the elements of the mid-century style, you’ll often be able to identify these stunners on sight.

Location consciousness

Many mid-century modern homes have been designed to take advantage of their specific location and the surrounding landscape.

Windows and light

Windows are often emphasised in mid-century modern designs, blurring the lines between interior and exterior for a more harmonious space.

New shapes

The original mid-century modern designs took advantage of breakthroughs in technology and engineering to create bold, new structural forms.


Minimalism was championed by mid-century modern designers, who found beauty in simplicity and directness.

Mid-century modern home heritage overlays

Heritage overlay schemes were introduced to protect architecturally significant buildings. If your home is a particularly fine example of the Melbourne mid-century modern style, it may be listed on a heritage overlay registry. This means there are limitations on the renovations and extensions you can request.

Thankfully, our expert team knows how to navigate council regulations no matter how strict. We can apply for all the permits needed and ensure that any renovations we do reflect and respect your property’s mid-century origins.

Frequently asked questions about Mid century modern homes in Melbourne

How do you do mid century modern home extensions?

At Supa Group, we have a process for all extensions and renovations that covers the job from beginning to end.

  1. The Design Phase: Talk with our team of designers in a complimentary consultation. Ask them all the questions you like, and tell them exactly what you want.
  2. The Contract Preparation Phase: We will formalise your instructions, seek the proper permits, and draw up plans and a contract for the job.
  3. The Build Phase: Our builders will get to work on your mid century modern home, revamping it to your needs and specifications.

Do we need to move out during the renovations?

We endeavour to allow families to reside in their homes during renovations. So long as amenities are still accessible — e.g. you can still use the bathroom and bedrooms — it should be possible. If you do need to move out during renovations, we'll organise plans to suit your needs and provide plenty of notice.

How much does a mid-century home renovation cost?

That all depends on the type of work you'd like us to do. The first step in the process, a consultation with our designers, is totally free. From there, we can supply you with a quote. We work hard to deliver quality work at the lowest possible price.
