The existing single storey traditional weatherboard home is complimented by the double storey transition. The well fitted extension of the kitchen and living spaces helped to complete the home with additional spaces for a bigger family. The material is kept the same with the existing to create a well fitted extension.
New glass sliding door and corner windows, located on the eastern wall of the living area will take advantage of the garden views.
The proposal has been designed with privacy in mind, to capture the natural light and ventilation, to filter through the home and to provide good northern light for new living areas with the clerestory windows. This achieves good garden views and passive solar design, as well as limiting excessive solar gain from the northern clerestory windows in summer by using deep eave overhangs to give good cover from harsh sun.
