The house, built in the 1930’s required a fresh approach to unlock its potential and provide a modern family home.  Key to the works was the change in location of the principle access and the remodelling of the entrance. This opened up a more logic sequence of spaces from the loggia, entrance hall, thorough to the kitchen; dining & open plan living area.

Augmenting the refurbishment of the ground floor rooms was a landscape strategy to open up the spaces to create a seamless link from inside to outside.  The landscape design utilises a natural pallet of materials to compliment the house and includes an impressive external swimming pool.
