With a family needing more room to spread its wings, our client was passionate about expanding the living space across two levels. A much-loved home, they wanted to retain the original features of its era and ensure the first floor addition was blended in harmoniously.
As a home first built in the 1960’s, this home was full of charm, with traditional features such as a front portico and original timber windows. The client’s vision was to create an upper level with a parent's retreat, study area, and secondary living/relaxing zone, thus providing more downstairs living space for their family. The aspect that was most important was for the first floor to look like it had always been there, with a seamless flow between the original home and the addition. A contemporary remodelling of the kitchen space was also high on the list, with a generous L-return casual dining benchtop to accommodate all the family. A special feature is the character timber staircase, which ties in with traditional Hamptons styling.
