This original dark federation home underwent a major ultra modern addition, to take advantage of the northern aspect – flooding the home with natural light and cross flow ventilation. The extensive use of glass gives the family a bright living space featuring polished American Oak flooring.

The building challenge was to restore the original federation style and then blend with an ultra modern extension using commercial grade aluminium window units, louvred glass and aluminium blades. The property also required the conversion of the existing swimming pool to a retention tank for onsite rainwater storage for re-use in laundry/toilets/irrigation of garden and to top up the new 25m-lap pool.

Using contemporary materials and the latest CBUS automated electrical wiring for control of motorised blinds, garage door, lighting, alarm, fans and sound system, the result is a seamless extension in which old meets new.
