The Federation period house was located at the front of a large suburban lot with a poor addition. They provided a very poor standard of accommodation.
The challenges for this project was to retain, adapt and conserve the original house and provide a large amount of new accommodation to the rear.
The house at the front was retained and all additions removed. A lounge study, guest suite and ancillary facilities were provided to the original building. A link building was designed to transition between new and old. This link provided access to two new levels of accommodation; living areas on the ground floor and bedrooms, play area and bathrooms at the first floor.
The addition is of a contemporary style, contrasting with the old house while remaining sympathetic to it.
