A spacious sunroom and porch also allow those inside to enjoy sheltered views of the landscape outside even as greenery is intertwined with every part of the house.

To complement the existing traditional bungalow, the new addition on facing the street is a modernist concrete framework with lightweight timber infills to create the building envelope. The site’s western aspect determined the inclusion of windows to span the complete eastern & northern sides of the lower & upper levels to maximise natural light and views throughout the home.
