The client owned a wide, traditional style freestanding terrace. They wanted to modernise it and enhance its relationship to the outside. The original design included a sunroom at the rear. This was remodeled so that it became a covered outdoor dining area.
A pop-out on the side of the terrace, into the breezeway, accommodated the tall components of the kitchen wall (over the fridge and cooktop) relieving the narrow space of the room. The area above the garage was transformed into an urban landscaped area, with built-in seating in front of planting that, over time, would provide privacy.
The long living space has a wall of joinery broken up by timber inset pieces, to articulate the various zones and give it some definition.
