NEW RESIDENCE - RURAL
The owners needed a house which would accommodate the growing family & adapt over the years to the varying occupancies, function as a comfortable home for the most part but also accommodate larger gatherings on occasion - & most importantly retain a strong connection with the magnificent bush surrounds.
The preference was for a more traditional style avoiding discordance with the setting. They wanted a result which would complement the site rather than dominate it.
We have made some alterations over the years but the original has stood the tests of time & happily served the owners early objectives well.
Extentions and alterations
REPLACEMENT RESIDENCE - SUBURBAN
After much exploration of the possibility of extending & altering this family home (3rd generation), it was decided that there was limited scope for achieving the best results regarding aesthetics & practical benefits & modern amenities.
The site had its challenges & unique features with much potential to develop & foster. The final test of our results is that the owner who grew up in the original house is satisfied & has gained added enjoyment through increased access to the unique features of the site & surrounds.
We have been able to achieve all the modern amenities which we have come to expect of our housing while retaining some of the appeal of an earlier style
