About BP Architects designed Frankston South Home

The comfort & building performance of the Frankston South home worked well and when the Awards Juror entered the home the first thing he said was ‘Wow’.  He could feel the fresh cooling breezes being drawn through the house from the rear garden cooling the house on a hot summer day.

The Owners of the house were resourceful in sourcing materials which were later designed into the retrofit of their home.  These materials were mostly second hand, salvaged & the reuse of existing materials from the demolition of the house such as the kitchen which was refurbished & a new (second-hand) marble bench tops added.

Neighbours who visited the home said that they ‘must have spent millions’ on renovating their home when the home was economically built within budget.

BP Architects were commissioned to design the retrofit of this home as Bridget works in collaboration with her Clients in designing their energy efficient sustainable homes. The Frankston South Home is a Sustainable Heritage project.
