“Wow! This inviting home is cleverly designed and extremely well built. The extension perfectly melded old and new, bringing life to yesteryear.” … HIA Judge.
The owners wished to totally renovate and substantially upgrade this grand old gentleman’s bungalow to make better use of the spaces, enlarge the casual living area and to introduce natural light where possible, to existing rooms.
They also had a special interest in providing a wine room for their extensive wine collection plus a new lap pool for the avid water polo swimmers in the family. Their brief was met by repositioning some existing spaces to adjust their function and form plus increasing the home’s footprint for an additional bathroom and laundry, a gymnasium plus an Alfresco outdoor entertaining area servicing the existing tennis court and new lap pool, all of which made way for a complete new floor plan with more accessibility to natural light.
Further enhancements included changing the existing dining room to a games room. The introduction of skylights, ventilation, blinds and more windows added to the existing casual meals/sunroom to visually connect with the new lap pool.
