When we first looked at this house, it was a derelict old run down heap but had huge potential. The clients requested a full restoration, a rear addition & a studio.
Continuing on with a reinterpretation of the original construction techniques provided a seamless transition from the existing front of the house through to the new rear addition. As with most houses from this era, the addition required an open plan kitchen/dinning/living which opens onto a verandah for outdoor entertaining.
The completed restoration & renovation sits well on the large quarter acre block and feels like a new generation of the previous building’s family, of a similar DNA.
