At DX Architects we specialise in residential and commercial architecture within the inner suburbs of Melbourne, including Hawthorn. Furthermore, a typical project for us contains the design and renovation of a townhouse or creating a sympathetic addition to a heritage building.
Whilst there are no two projects the same, our local experience has taught us how to deal with all architectural circumstances, from local legislation and planning permissions, to finding a design that meets the expectations of our clients.
Local architecture in Hawthorn
Hawthorn is a perfect example of a typical suburb that we work in – thriving with new housing projects, commercial buildings and events venues. It combines modern living with charmly properties – expect to see new bars and restaurants on a monthly basis, surrounded by Victorian and Edwardian properties and newly developed studio apartments throughout Hawthorn’s streets.
However, with the high development rate comes rising property prices. The median house price in Hawthorn is around $1,900,000 and average rent prices are towards $670 per week (source: realestate.com.au).
The high prices to buy new property means we have seen an upweight in the number of house owners developing what they already own. The number of architectural design projects in Hawthorn has grown as a result, with new projects focusing on increasing the number of bedrooms, improving natural light or interior design modifications.
Our recent projects in Hawthorn
As architects, we pride ourselves on the success of recent projects, and these latest contemporary architecture projects in Hawthorn are no exception:
Hawthorn Renovation – Linda Crescent
Described as meticulously renovated and stunning from every angle, this project is one that we are extremely proud of. From the original concept designs and planning applications, through to the beautiful brickwork and interior design, the project took approximately 2 years.
The completed project sold for $1,800,000, slightly above the median price for a 2 bedroom property in Hawthorn.

Alterations & additions to this Hawthorn house
Back in February 2015, we completed the building works on an extensive alterations and additions project. The task was to add a double storey extension to the rear of the home that added a modern, contemporary practicality but retained the heritage appeal of the building.
