This renovation required a sensitive restoration to the original front of the house and a new extension to the rear. Internally the original rooms were refurbished, and new flooring was used throughout the house to tie the old and the new together. Importantly we sought to bring plenty of light into the new work. This was achieved by clerestory windows, full-width bi-fold windows and a glazed kitchen splashback leading to an internal courtyard that also services the staircase and a bedroom. We also wanted to blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor space. This was achieved by timber decking at internal floor height and by bringing external materials in (timber clad ceiling, in-situ concrete).
