The client required a design solution that incorporated a teenagers’ retreat, an extension of the main living area, a new kitchen and deck. The house was on a corner block which created a number of challenges. The first was to work within the council set back restrictions.
The second challenge was to provide privacy from the street whilst keeping the wonderful views of the Derwent River. The stairs also needed to be redesigned to be safer than the existing spiral staircase.
The kitchen, dining and living areas were extended to open up the area whilst providing space for the teenagers retreat below. The roofline was carried out over the top of the deck to provide shelter and ultimately a more versatile area.
