Residential Architecture in Hampton
The architecture is Hampton is varied. Traditionally Hampton was home to many original Californian Bungalows, many which have been loving restored into beautiful family homes. Increasingly contemporary new builds have emerged by local Bayside builders such as Inform, Stonnington and Carter Grange. More controversially, for long standing Hampton residents, there has been an influx of new apartments and high-rise dwellings around Hampton Street, further expanding on the versatility of the area but reducing some of its ‘family-friendly’ appeal.
In this area we typically help clients who are looking to complement their Californian Bungalows with plantation shutters, exterior black and white striped awnings or in their modern extensions, sheer curtains are a popular choice for a soft but elegant look.
In the new apartments our clients have sought window furnishings specifically targeting insulation and sun protection to keep their places cool is summer and warm in winter.
