Title: Viewbank 1960’s Modernist Extension

Completion: 2016

Project Value: $200K

Positioned on a hill overlooking the urban landscape in the quiet suburb of Viewbank, our clients required a design that felt more open and harmoniously connected to nature and provide extended views of the well groomed urban landscape of their suburb that is part of their neighborhood. Our approach to the architectural design, initiated through a sectional study of the site context, answered the brief requirements and located the best views and good natural light. The final design was configured to provide an open cotemporary plan which nestled into the site slope creating a double storey level. The double storey extension now sits proudly forward, clad in rich sandstone contrast to the old brown bricks with full floor to ceiling height corner windows inviting the breathtaking outdoor views of trees and rooftops, and inviting natural light to spill through the open living plan. From within the open plan or on the deck, occupants are visually connected throughout the new spaces. The architects were able to achieve the design within the client’s minimum budget and breathing new life to this lovely family home for them to enjoy for many years to come.
