Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions)
Concord Built
Christopher Frederick Jones
Project summary

With the stage 2 works, the owners’ initial aspirations were ambitious yet unequivocal to not only build upon the overarching design of the house but to extend its spatial boundaries, refine the material quality of the spaces and fashioning spaces that exuded adaptability and flexibility.

The completion of a masterplan started the journey and laid the foundation for the project into the future.

By expanding the living areas of the house including further developing the undercroft area, the stage 2 additions achieve the original goals of engaging physically and visually with the backyard whilst respecting the need for the spaces to be flood resilient.

The rear addition to the building is orientated northeast and helps achieve the goal of engaging visually with the backyard.

In continuity with the material palette introduced in stage 1, the architectural narrative remains cohesive, ensuring a seamless transition between the original structure and the recent expansions.

As a family, we were outgrowing the stage one works which Reddog designed as a result of the 2011 floods. We engaged Reddog Architects again to look at maximising external underutilised space and extending to ensure long term growth as a family.

The final design has provided a massive change to our lifestyle and engagement as a family. We spend a lot more time outside entertaining and spending time together as a family.

Internally, the design has meant the functionality of the new and existing spaces work so much better with more dedicated areas for kitchen, dining, living and lounge.
