One of our recent projects has been a collaboration with another designer, which involved an extensive addition to a historic character style villa in Epsom, Auckland. The owners wanted to renovate the existing 3 bedroom villa to accommodate 2 families with one having the upper level and the other the lower level.
After considering options it was decided to leave the existing house as much as possible and add a 2 storey addition to the rear. The addition has been given a clean modern feel in contrast to the traditional front part of the house. Large windows and doors open onto north and west facing decks at both levels, while the existing house has been reconfigured to provide 4 good size bedrooms a bathroom and an ensuite.
This house should provide many years of enjoyable living for this extended family.
