My First House

A typical 1970’s style house receives a major transformation and facelift to give it a more contemporary and modern look and feel. My partner and I developed the property together with the aim of introducing modern principles such as open plan living, yet still retaining some original elements such as the fireplace and roof tiles.

The flow through the house was simplified and improved by demolishing a few walls, reconfiguring some door openings and creating larger windows and sliders, that also allow more natural daylight inside. The garden is an ongoing challenge due to severe wind in the area and water restrictions.
