A northern oriented addition, wrapped around a tree.
With a massive 16m tree on site, with an extensive root system, to be maintained, this residential addition and renovation required careful consideration to layout, to ensure that the amenities of the site were retained and enhanced.
Featuring a series of rammed earth blade walls, with an external skin of energy efficient stud work, this addition reconfigured the existing residence into bedrooms, and added north facing Kitchen, Dining and Living and Master Suite, as well as Alfresco and Pool. A new entry, situated in the middle of the residence, ensures that the newly created rear spaces can be entered without disturbing the front children’s bedrooms, a great long-term solution for entertaining and general livability.
With a focus on external connection, landscape and materiality, this residence connects the occupants to the site established conditions.
