The only part remaining of the original 1900’s villa is the front face of the home. The rest of the house was removed and excavation allowed for the addition. This was a tight, difficult site as access on both sides of the property was limited.
Features include internal glass sliding doors which fully retract to change from open plan to separate rooms, precast panel construction, fully mirrored bathroom, twin garaging with hidden internal access through wall panels, commercial grade kitchen, electric gates, automatic louvers, glass floor on upper level, glass stairs, handrail and partial glass roof.
An originally plaster Tuskany style 90's home was rebuilt and modernised. This renovation took the house back to its framework, making some changes to the roofline and removing internal walls to create open planned living areas.
Features include variety of cladding such as zinc cedar shiplap and bevel back weather boards with exterior louvers used for privacy. The fireplace on the second level is cantilevered to maximise site coverage.
