Inside Out (Australia) - - Renovation -

While Louise and Richard took sev­eral years to hone their ren­o­va­tion vi­sion, there were some must-haves that re­mained con­sis­tent through­out the de­sign process.

A north-fac­ing ad­di­tion capturing the best of the Aus­tralian sun in­cor­po­rates a lofty open-plan space for the fam­ily to cook, eat and en­ter­tain in, while a sep­a­rate pav­il­ion hous­ing a bar­be­cue kitchen, home of­fice and ex­er­cise do­main was con­structed in keep­ing with the ex­ten­sion.

The orig­i­nal home main­tains its beau­ti­ful her­itage fea­tures, how­ever, the rear is an en­tirely dif­fer­ent story.

“We wanted the ex­ten­sion to be not just a con­tin­u­a­tion, but rather some­thing of a sur­prise,” says Louise. “We were also keen for it to be low-key and fit into its en­vi­ron­ment.”

Tanya adds: “The out­come is a time­less, yet mod­ern, home that es­tab­lishes a good con­nec­tion with the gar­den and cre­ates an en­vi­ron­ment for con­tem­po­rary fam­ily liv­ing.”
