The client required a renovation that would cater to her changing needs, though she didn’t want anything that was out of character with the original home.
The extension was attached to the home via a glazed link, which ensured that the heritage garden went undisturbed, in particular the two old camellias. The link was also built around existing services, including drainage and power that ran along the side of the house, so they didn’t need to be moved.
The extension includes a bedroom, ensuite, and robe, and from the road it looks as though it’s been there the whole time. We had to match the roof pitch, gables, and stucco finish of the original house. Internally, we created raked ceilings with panelled timber, and had to install Baltic pine floorboards to match the existing floors. We even had to custom make the doors, as we couldn’t get any to match the existing ones.
A sympathetic and aesthetic addition to a heritage home.
