A truly lovely 1930’s house enhanced with a contemporary living pavilion. And it has a decent carport.
The house was comfortable enough but it lacked openness and almost ignored the large terraced rear yard. It also lacked sufficient space for the growing family, and only had one small bathroom. We reconfigured the house, while respecting its original features. As part of this revision we removed the bathroom, so it could become the link to an added pavilion. That created a ventilation corridor through both buildings, which assisted the original building to ‘breath’ more. The house is now a generous four bed building with large bath and ensuite for the master. The pavilion was deliberately kept low, so the house could still see over it to the treed park behind. In that pavilion is an open plan kitchen and family living zone leading out to a large covered deck that now is connected to the rear terraces and with grand views of the park.
Much work was undertaken during design to handle placing the pavilion over a sewer, with the solution including moving the house connection, and coordinating the authority.
As part of the project a carport was added. Refer that page.
