From the architect: The existing house was a three bedroom Californian bungalow home with a lean-to at the rear in which the owners lived for a few years before the renovation. The brief was to make the living spaces more suitable for a young family by resolving the awkward layout and providing a better connection to the outside.

The project was able to be passed through Council by a Complying Development Consent as it satisfied all the numerical values and the required codes. The design includes a new open plan living, dining and kitchen space opening onto the back garden and is a good study on how to maximise the northern light into an extension with an east-west orientation.

The use of different volumes incorporating skylights and high-light windows allow sun filtration and makes the space interesting throughout the day. Cavity sliding doors allow a rumpus/media room off the living space to be opened up or closed off as desired.
