Having lived in the house for eleven years, the clients came to us with a desire to reinvigorate it and to maximise their space without drastically altering its original fabric. They had a vision to alter their relationship with the garden and to open the kitchen to become more interactive with the rest of the house.
By shifting the location of the carport to the north-west of the house, we were able to insert an outdoor living space to the front. This space acts as a visual bind between the garden, kitchen and living areas whilst providing additional footprint allowing the family to more comfortably co-exist in the house.
This project received an an Architecture Award in the Alterations and Additions category at the 2009 AIA Awards.
