An existing 1920’s elevated dwelling on Sydney’s northern beaches was partly demolished and significantly refurbished. The client’s brief was to renovate the existing part of the dwelling, whilst adding a contemporary addition to the rear.
A conscious decision to separate the aesthetic of the existing from the new informed the architectural response. A considered approach to the organisational diagram and the material selection were also a key focus.
The result is a comfortable, zoned floor plan that takes better advantage of the site than the previous home. The home is much better aligned with the needs of the young family that resides there with a strong indoor/ outdoor connection between the flat usable yard areas to the living zones of the dwelling.
