Point Lonsdale House involved alterations and additions to an existing 1980’s brown brick project home.
This modest project sought to transform a well lived in family home which previously accommodated a family of five, into a house for the clients to retire in now that their children have left home and have families of their own.
By definition, the new addition – which measures only 40m2 in area – is a quintessential lean-to addition, sleeving under the existing fascia and gutter of the existing house. The addition provides a significantly improved master bedroom suite, which was designed to take in the views of their adjacent well-established garden. The project also involved an extensive reconfiguration to the houses internal living, kitchen and dining spaces.
Waste minimisation was a critical component of this project – particularly during the demolition phase of the project.
