Albert Park | Victoria
Status Completed 2003
Nestled in Melbourne's bayside suburb, this Federation Bungalow required a transformation from a quaint four bedroom home into a home with a contemporary living area that provided space and style. The transformation integrated the new extension with the existing house as well as making the extension work to it's full potential. The new room to the rear of the house was built at right angles to the house rather than running across the back.
Japanese inspired slatted screens were installed outside as both a design element and as thermal protection against the summer sun. The slatted screens shed an ambient light over the living area and also allowed views of the garden even when closed.
