A mid-century modern renovation.
The clients were specifically drawn to the form and function of mid-centaury modern architecture and bought an existing low set, brick house with the vision to transform it into a design that would be tailored to their family’s lifestyle.
The proposed design retains the western living side of the original layout and integrates a split level, compact four bedroom, two bathroom, media space and sunken lounge. This allowed the family space to entertain and socialise, while also providing separate pockets of intimacy.
The build has been documented to recycle most of the existing materials, blending the character of the existing house through the new design, preventing the renovation from looking and feeling like a thoughtless bolt-on.
