Renovation of a pair of semi-detached dwellings to form a gracious family home.
This house is currently under construction.
from the street
Located in a conservation area, modifications to the street elevation are subtle, preserving the neighbourhood character as well as the appealing qualities of the old building. An elegant colour palette and a careful restoration of original timber detailing to the verandah form part of a ‘just enough’ approach to the work.
The house was designed as a response to how the family live - mainly in the outdoors, under a shady vine-clad pergola. The extension to the house retains this outdoor garden room feeling. Initially designed as the renovation of just one of the properties, the design was developed to bring the same principles to a united pair.
