This project grapples with a common suburban problem and follows a typical brief. A period era home and a modern family with a desire to connect the living spaces to the backyard and harness internal/external living.
The approach was to minimise the amount of additional floor area required adding only 2m to the rear of the dwelling while organising the internal planning more efficiently. A focus on quality over quantity led to a series of carefully considered openings and a suspended garden allows the external threshold to blur. This experiment in off-form concrete and timber window detailing offers differing choices throughout the year.
