An inner-urban house extension, connecting the period dwelling at the front with the garden at the back, a contemporary intervention and a resurrection of the heritage dwelling at the same time. The new living spaces as a mediator in-between : The result is a funky yet subtle little extension.
Starting with a period house that was stuck in the 1970s and had lost its original flair, our clients asked us to convert this into a sustainable, light-filled family home. Key considerations were the connection to the outdoors, opportunities to entertain, passive solar design and other ESD features, while creating new family and play areas, laundry and studio.
