1/9
Designed in the 1960's, this unique, single storey dwelling required a total reno and reorganisation of the interior spaces and external works to windows, roof, walls and deck to make it a nice home for the next 50 years

The client wanted to create a more modern, spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a library and a variety of open plan living spaces to bring the home into the 21st century.

 

Total refurbishment was necessary as the entire internal area needed to be redesigned to maximise the practicality and use of all available space. The kitchen was moved to a more central location and combined with open plan living and dining, made a spacious and inviting home ideal for entertaining. The addition of an upper level gallery library utilises vertical space in the double height living room that was previously not used, and adds visual impact and character. Bamboo flooring was laid throughout to create the illusion of a much larger space.

 

Two bedrooms and a family bathroom were created on a second level long with an open plan reading area adjacent to the library. Walls of glass bring in the beautiful bush setting and louvred windows catch the breezes, ensuring the house remains cool without the need for air-conditioning.
