  • The Design

    Proposals & design features

    The design incorporated features such as corner glazing and full height bifold doors with rooflights throughout bringing in large levels of light to existing and new spaces. The angled wall to the kitchen / sitting area connected the spaces together but did not compromise the external patio area or the flow of the internal spaces. The structure over the corner window is cantilevered and as a result no corner post is present and would allow the future installation of a frameless window.

  • The Result

    Aesthetics & materials

    A combination of new render and horizontal fibre cement boarding was utilized on the external elevations. Dark grey aluminium windows and doors complimented the materials.
