Double storey extension to existing 2 bedroom weatherboard single storey home, providing 3 bedrooms, 1 study, bathroom, laundry, en-suite, kitchen, and open plan living area.
The open plan living concept is consolidated by the use of a new stair situated at the main entrance, which gently ascends into a double height void, terminating at an open plan study arrangement. This space becomes the canvas for ever changing light variations due to the high level corner windows, stair well skylight, and the void light well.
The strategic position of openings promoting air flow, high ceilings, radial sawn timber, window shading devices, highly insulated building envelope, evaporative cooling, hydronic heating, solar heat pump generators for hot water, and rainwater tanks ensure this building is an energy efficient solution which fully engages with it’s natural context and minimises it’s impact on the environment.
