residential extensions

alsoCAN architects specialises in residential extensions & additions. We like to retain as much as we can. It can save you money, it's better for the environment & old houses have charm that we can compliment with new spaces.

We like locals popping into our office to ask about renovating their house. We are happy to look & give initial Planning advice.

An addition in Hawthorn led to designing another & an extension in Richmond to one in Canterbury. The joy of happy clients recommending us & clients returning to design their next house or addition.
