The existing house was a dated building in a heritage conservation area which, over the years, had had a number of unsympathetic alterations carried out. As a result, the interior was dark and with no direct connection to the backyard. The exterior had a number of additions that had watered down the charming period features of the front façade.
Homeimpact was approached by the owners, a young couple with a growing family, to design and construct alterations and additions to the house. After successfully negotiating the development application through Council, we then went through an intensive detail design process with the owners. The result is a light-filled house with an open plan rear addition with excellent connection to the backyard and new swimming pool.
