The client’s brief was for a reworking of the front upper level entry and to draw upon the extensive rear yard at the lower level living areas. The street frontage additions included a new carport, terraced steps leading to a new covered entry and converting the existing garage into a study. Louvre windows facilitate cross ventilation. The rear design squared off the rumpus room with sliding doors opening to a timber deck and rainwater tank underneath. A detailed solar pergola allows winter sun to penetrate and blocks out the late afternoon summer sun.
