Queenslander House Renovation
This older Queenslander style house was once divided into two flats. Hence it’s layout was cluttered and the internal spaces were dark and uninviting.
The design brief included the renovation of the top floor only, including a new rear extension and new covered deck. Consideration was also to be given to improving the relationship between the house and the prevailing site conditions, especially the lovely views and breezes at the rear. The clients wanted as much extra light and ventilation to enter the internal spaces as possible.
The work was centred around the incorporation of a new kitchen and adjacent rear deck, incorporating them seamlessly into the existing building fabric. It was also important that this allowed the extension of the rear living areas onto the deck, creating a much more user-friendly set of spaces for the family to enjoy.
