The Renovation Project
Shaun and Jenny live in the house with their children. Shaun and Jenny wanted to add their own footprint onto their property by carrying out further contemporary additions and whole house refurbishment. The key aspects of the proposal will be to create a large kitchen, dining and family space which maximises the beautiful views available to the rear garden.
The design proposal takes on an eco-friendly approach that incorporates the use of contemporary architectural design. The ground floor extension is designed with a flat roof that overhangs - this will provide solar shading during the summer months and also allows for lighting from above externally, illuminating the outer space during evening hours. The organic structure of the extension infills the void between the main house and the pool curving back and extending further towards the end of the property. The space becomes the medium between the two existing spaces.
The rear terrace area incorporates a new seating and bbq area that follows the form of the new extension. Above the straightened length of the extension, a new modern glass balcony area has been included to the master bedroom. This will provide space to relax during the hot seasons and also enhance the amount of natural light accessible to the master bedroom through the new glazed doors.
