Dreaming of turning your city home into a modern multi-level masterpiece? Complete with a wine cellar, rooftop terrace and contemporary living spaces, this Adelaide townhouse shows how it can be done.
Our fabulous project in Adelaide is a smart lesson in how to maximise on size and space in the CBD. Featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, a luxurious kitchen with walk-in pantry, and a rooftop terrace, the charming townhouse promises to be a phenomenal space. See how it all started.
Go higher and lower
Extending up and down is the perfect solution for city dwellers seeking to carve more living space out of their homes. And this Adelaide townhouse is no exception with two entirely new levels being built – a new cellar and a sky-high rooftop entertaining area – as well as major renovations on the existing home.
Creating a multi-level build of this type means some serious construction work. The sheer height of the project requires extensive scaffolding so we can put in place the steel work ready for the second storey concrete slab. This slab will not only be the ceiling of the second storey, but the floor of the third storey – a 60 square metre open rooftop entertaining area.
Take in the view
Imagine sitting back and watching the city skyline from your very own rooftop. That’s what the owners of this Adelaide townhouse will soon indulge in thanks to their new rooftop terrace. Building up is a smart way to create more living space, especially bedrooms and even entertaining space, and the extensive rooftop area will tick all their boxes.
If having a glass of wine in hand would help you fully appreciate the panorama, the multi-level home has that covered too, with a new wine cellar. Watch how we excavated to create a 5.5m x 2.5m wine cellar in this video.
The owners won’t even have to navigate a flight of stairs, because we’re adding a dazzling four-level glass sided lift. So, the owners can travel from the rooftop to the cellar and back again – for another bottle of wine, of course!
