This project provides a great example of how to renovate and prolong the life of a period home without excessive cost or extensive demolition. The contemporary architectural solution ticks all the boxes of the client’s brief and provides a well resolved response to the existing site conditions, enriching both the existing dwelling and the entire neighbourhood character. The interior design is intended to remain as relevant today as it will in 100 years, both complementing and enhancing the existing context of the house with seamless integration, yet modern convenience and style. The carefully-considered connection between interior and exterior spaces and landscape design ensures framed views to external gardens and a sense of open-connection from in to out and vice-versa.
