1940s Bungalow Office Conversion

Occasionally, Style Plus Renovations undertakes light commercial work.

Many watchers of “The Block NZ” season 5, 2016 often wondered about “the house in the corner”. It featured in the opening scenes as it sat amongst the Meadowbank building site of “The Block NZ”.

The house was used as the site office and remained throughout the series. It was sold when the series came to an end and it was now ready to undergo its own renovation.

The single level 1940s bungalow located on St Johns Road, Meadowbank had been purchased by one of our associate architects, Squaretomato.

We were pleased to have been appointed for the job of transforming this character 3 bedroom home into well-appointed commercial architect’s office.
