The existing house was essentially a single storey + basement garage dwelling. The brief was to maximise the site potential in terms of floor area and take advantage of possible iconic water and city skyline views from a new first floor addition.
The major alterations & additions project has transformed the existing house into a large contemporary home that consists of five bedrooms, double garage, large open-plan kitchen & living areas on the first floor adjoining full width terraces with water views, plus a lower floor living area that adjoins the new swimming pool and external entertainment space.
With generous proportions and large sections of glass throughout, the building's interior is flooded with natural light. The completed building is an appropriate fit to the surrounding development, which is designed to minimise view loss to adjacent properties.
