Golden Elm House

Living Architecture


A much loved 50’s style home in the foothills of Adelaide keeps true to its original style, while creating more room from a new extension. Garden preservation was key to fostering a playful environment for a growing family who loved their backyard, home and beautiful golden elm tree.  

Project type: Extension and interior renovation

Clients: James and Sareet Parington

Architects: KHAB Architecture
