The project brief called for major alterations and additions to an existing single storey house, take advantage of the elevated water views, and create a comfortable family home. The distinctive soft curves and form is a result of thoughtful and creative response to the Council controls and site constraints. The old and the new are distinctly separated by the use of carefully selected materials, colours and textures. The existing house is rendered and painted in a white colour to provide a neutral base. The upper level is visually integrated within the roof with use of same material for cladding and roofing. The identity of the front of the house is retained to continue its long-standing contribution to the streetscape but upgraded and modernised to be on par with the rest of the house.
