The application of a rigorous adherence to design principles, aligned with the existing period and features of this home, combined with impeccable craftsmanship throughout this renovation, has resulted in a seamless extension to the rear of this grand period building. The extension combines all the charm of the original period and at the same time is infused with a quality of light and liveability that is more in keeping with current expectations for modern living. The judges were impressed with the apparent effort and subsequent success in fusing this new living area with the existing building and its surrounds, which presents as though it was always part of the house.
