Contemporary extension for the downsizing baby boomers.

A common brief, retain the original stone building and remove the old lean-to to create a light-filled space with open plan living and kitchen areas. Provide visual access to the garden and an undercover meals and BBQ area. This carefully detailed project evolved from poor access to northern light and restrictive site size. This meant that everything must have a dual purpose. So the overhang becomes a seat, the garage wall becomes a screen, the laundry trough becomes a hand basin. The result is a contemporary family home where the spaces seamlessly flow from one to the other.
