A feature roof with a delicate and elegant geometry, creates a unique expression, much like butterfly landing on the dwelling.
Located within a residential area, the existing house is now too small for its owner and in need of expansion with an open-plan living area.
The existing house is tastefully renovated, and rooms are carefully repurposed to increase the number of bedrooms, in order to accommodate a growing family if needed. Crucial to the project is the concept that this new space be flooded with natural light and as part of the brief, the roof is to be a feature element both inside and on the outside.
The new addition faces north, and the new roof provides extra ceiling height as well as abundant access to natural light.
Articulated to regulate access to the northern sun, the design response leans on the feature roof to create a unique internal experience.
