The existing building was separated into 3 separate tenancies. The proposal amalgamates these into a single residence, restoring the integrity of the building.
Minor internal alterations to the existing dwelling improve the planning, performance, flow and quality of spaces. The existing footprint is maintained but the southern roof is transformed to capture sunlight and promote good cross-ventilation in the living areas. An additional deck provides connection to outdoor living and amenity including landscaped areas and privacy for the residents. The addition’s roof is a simple form that balances the heritage of the existing building. Articulation of the this form is used to create moments of light and shadow which play throughout the year.
