Designed to a modest budget, this new living room, dining room and kitchen sits wholly within the footprint and roof of an existing 1980’s rear skillion roofed addition which housed a tumble of rooms – kitchen, laundry, bathroom and south facing terrace. The original, heritage listed, pre-Federation portion of the house – was retained and restored. We converted one bedroom and an oversized linen room into bathrooms – freeing up the rear of the house for the new living room to open onto a shaded deck and outdoor dining/ BBQ area. Horizontal and vertical slot windows in the kitchen frame a verdant olive tree and avoid overlooking of a neighbouring pool.
