House size: 426m2

It was a great honour to be trusted with the home extension for the Governor General’s private residence in Canberra. Delighted with the outcome, David Hurley, and his wife Linda, can continue to enjoy their memory filled home for many more years to come.

The art of a great home extension is in creating a seamless transition between the old and the new. This is where our high attention to detail shines through. For this extension and renovation, two thirds of the original house was demolished.

We’ve been working with Brendan for about 18 months to finish our house. We’re really delighted with the outcome and end product. The entire time we’ve had a very positive and constructive relationship with Brendan and his crew. They’ve been very professional, we’ve been able to talk and we’ve got a great outcome.”

Governor General, David Hurley
