The existing house is a 1950s cottage on a sloping block, which had a one storey disconnect at the back of the house to the ground level. The client’s brief was to create additional internal space and a physical connection to a useable backyard and pool.
The concept for the addition frames and connects a central view to the striking Angophora trees out the back whilst gently stepping the house down the site.
One of the successful outcomes of this project is how the family now enjoy a greater outdoor-indoor lifestyle, with shelter from the elements, nestled in the natural environment of the surrounding landscape.
Site Program: 6 months (whilst client resided in the house)
Builder: Brehar Building
