case study: 'On Anderson' title

"With this smallish triangular corner block, it was very important to integrate the house and the garden as closely as possible – creating a cohesive whole and maximizing the use we gained from the garden. We designed this house with a specific final owner in mind – a couple with no children who wanted the convenience of an apartment, but with the bonus of being able to escape to their very own low maintenance, subtropical oasis and pool.”

Challenges:

  • A small 305m2 block with two road frontages.
  • The existing house already maximized the dwelling foot print, so it was imperative to work within the existing structure.
  • To create an additional interior front entry, ensuite, and double carport.
  • To design a ‘rock pool’ feel with entertaining area.
  • To work within the existing character of the cottage but create a more relaxed ’beach house ‘effect.
