Renovation / Extension

Hawthorn East Extension

This project is a single storey rear extension to a Californian bungalow in Hawthorn East.  The current house consisted of a number of good sized, but 'separate' rooms, but what it lacked was a central main living space that brought the house together as well as made a connection to the backyard.

The response was to extend the existing small dining/living area into a new, large, central space that opened out via steel framed windows to a large deck for alfresco dining.  This deck would cascade down to the back garden via a series of floating steps.  The overall effect was to create an extension that was modern with clean lines, subtle materials and well considered detailing.
