Title: Reservoir Art Deco House Renovation & Extension
Project Value: $400K
The dark double skin clinker bricks are an ecco of the past, and relevant as an architectural feature of the original character of the home. The newly renovated extension of the home expands on the original dwelling’s architectural language. The challenges of updating this historical 100 year old building to modern contemporary living standards was achieved by opening up the kitchen, dining and living spaces, including rich modern fixtures and finishes to provide the contemporary feel, fit for a modern family. The once dark and dingy interior is now filled with natural light and ventilation, providing good northern light to new living areas overlooking the garden views. The connections and disconnections are made between the old and new by stepping the angled wall sitting proudly forward to promote the evolving character of the home.
