This project is an alteration & addition to an existing double storey dwelling in Illawong, NSW. The project is located on a quite residential street, typical of the area. However, due to the terrain, the rear of the property affords unexpected expansive views of the valley beyond.
The original dwelling suffered from a number of poorly designed alterations, the proposed design aims to rectify these errors in order to create a comfortable, functional family home.
The original standard pitched roof is replaced with an asymmetrical pitched roof. The west facing street facade has been clad in a timber screen, providing privacy to the bedrooms and shading from the harsh summer sun. To the rear of the property the internal spaces open up to the garden and the view beyond.
