The brief was to optimize the use of this small site to provide a contemporary single dwelling. The development is totally within the footprint of the existing house excluding the rear deck spaces. The brief was to renovate the exterior and modernize the interior of the existing dwelling. The bedrooms on the lower level were refurbished with a new bathroom and laundry with access to the rear yard. A new star was built up to the main level which comprises an open plan kitchen / dining room, a formal living room and TV room. Apart from 'opening up' the interior of the house one of the two principal ideas was to make the kitchen the centre of the house, as a place for people to gather while enjoying Harbour views through new openings in the nofrhtern facade with existing windows enlarged on the eastern side to allow access to a large new timber balcony. An existing opening to the rear of the new dining room was widened to form new French doors to the balcony. The second main move was a separate master suite on the upper level of the house. This level was rearranged to include the master bedroom plus an ensuite, study and walk-in-robe. New openings on the northern elevation also take advantage of views to the Harbour. The street garden and carport were redesigned and rebuilt with new landscape giving a grander and more formal entry to the house.
