Residential - Alterations and Additions
Located within the beautiful seaside suburb of Williamstown, the client came to us with a brief to renovated and extend a beautifully-detailed heritage listed Bungalow house.
Key to the clients brief was for the house to be updated to suit their modern lifestyles, with a contemporary addition that was both bold and sensitive to the original dwelling. The concept was clearly defined in three distinct components, which splits the house into the old, the glue and the new. By creating a clear separation between the existing weatherboard front dwelling with the new steel clad living area.
The house formally creates a contrast within the overall architecture of the house. A slender glass corridor between the two, further accentuates this contrast. Instead of trying to replicate the original dwelling (a design response which is unfortunately more common than it should be), we want the house to tell a story and celebrate what 'has always been there' and what is 'now there'.
An outdoor BBQ area is position along the southern boundary, a cantilever canopy over the bbq area is connected back to the new addition to form an entry 'gateway' and visually connecting the street back into the rear garden.
