Concept Design

Minor alterations to the exterior heighten the quaint presence of this single storey semi-detached character home. After entering through the new picket fence, a secluded front deck creates a usable front entertaining space which affords views of the city skyline.

Re-organising the high service areas of the kitchen and bathroom create better flow within the plan. A bathroom resides amongst the bedrooms instead of at the end of the house, making better use of a previous small bedroom. Whilst retaining the existing fireplace, the kitchen, dining and living areas are now connected and open, washed with natural light with new doors and windows embracing the courtyard space.

A solar pergola allows natural light into the previously dark interior whilst managing heat gain in the warmer months.
