Alterations and additions to an existing home in Naremburn, in the Naremburn Central Township Heritage Conservation Area. Compliance was through a Development Application through Willoughby Council.
This project was a fun collaboration with clients who are a cabinet maker and collectors of wonderful objects. The existing house was a 1900’s home which had been added to haphazardly over time. The clients had lovingly restored the front of the house, and we designed the additions to compliment these restorations and extend to accommodate a growing family. The result is a light filled timeless home
Sustainability was a very important aspect of the project, keeping the project compact, re-using existing spaces, bringing in light all year, orienting the living spaces to the north for winter warmth and providing protection from summer heat loads.
A new inner courtyard also provides a distinction between the old and new parts of the house.
Contemporary Architecture was involved throughout the whole project, from design through to the end of construction.
