The site presents as a long, narrow site with the long facade of the house facing North.

The design introduces a courtyard to create a “heart” to the centre of the house creating the link between the old and the new addition. This portion of the house is dedicated to entertaining and outdoor living. The courtyard also facilitates deep daylight penetration to the centre of the house, provides cross ventilation opportunities and also acts as second entry point to the home.

The upper level is a bedroom suite with walk-in-robe and ensuite. This space acts like a verandah with distant views the focus. The facade includes deeply set in windows with a “fin” element providing privacy from neighbouring sites and providing “texture” to the façade.
