Project summary

The design maximises the value of the existing project home whilst providing discrete contemporary additions to add value to daily life within strict budget constraints and managed to facilitate staging over a number of years.

A conscious effort has been made to effectively re-skin the existing house with a classic colonnade wrapping around key spaces to deliver an outcome celebrating the amazing views and garden creating a bold new addition and personality for the residence. This modern renovation has been separated into a series of connected spaces with each having a corresponding relationship to the topography and views from the house. The outcome is a considered flexible design facilitating the unique client requirements both now and into the future.

It is now my dream house. I get to eat breakfast while watching the sun rise across my garden. The 1950s and 60s furniture I spent the previous 20 years collecting fits in perfectly, my artwork sits well on the walls, and the whole house flows well. All the bedrooms and the main living and kitchen area now have excellent indoor/outdoor flow. It’s almost impossible to choose a favourite part – the kitchen, the gorgeous wooden floors, my ensuite… They all blend together to create a calming haven to escape the stresses of the day.
