Example Armadale Home Extensions & Drafting Services Projects
Our client’s existing home was a small (130m2) largely intact interwar villa with 3 cramped bedrooms, one bathroom and a small kitchen/family space with very little natural light as it was built up against a brick wall belonging to a two-story apartment block. It was decided to keep the existing façade and chimney and demolish the remainder.
We worked with the small irregular shaped block of 258m2 to design a ground floor of 150m2 with two bedrooms, a shared bathroom and an open plan kitchen living dining with courtyard and pool at the rear. The 1st floor of 58m2 has a large main bedroom, ensuite and large WIR and a fourth bedroom/study.
Below the ground, we included a 52m2 basement for artistic endeavours with wet areas and storage and two walkover light wells to offer natural light.
The main wish of our client was to maximise glazing throughout the entire house and they now have 260m2 of space flooded with natural light.
History of Armadale
Armadale, a residential suburb 7 km south-east of central Melbourne, is situated between Prahran and Malvern. Its boundaries are Orrong, Malvern, Glenferrie and Dandenong Road. It is named after Armadale House, the residence of James Munro (1832-1908), Premier and Attorney-General, speculator and failed land-boomer. Munro was born in Armadale, Sutherland shire, Scotland. Armadale House (1876) is heritage-listed.
In 1879 when the railway line was connected between Armadale and Oakleigh a station was opened at Armadale. This resulted in a commercial centre around the station and residential subdivisions nearby. A State primary school was opened in 1884. Several large residences in generous grounds were built. Some survive, but mostly in diminished allotments. Armadale was described in the Australian handbook, 1893:

Truly, Armadale is a place where you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city, which is why RFT Solutions is as proud of this place as you are!
RFT Solutions provides a design and drafting service for Armadale home extensions and renovations. We obtain building cost estimates, all the permits required, then tender, assess and negotiate builders quotes. We tender to builders whose reputation, time in business and quality of work has been recommended by building surveyors. Building surveyors issue the building permit and conduct inspections during construction. They are the best qualified to judge a builders quality of work rather than friends or neighbours.
