Situated in Kensington, Sydney, this project worked within an existing first floor addition to a 1920s bungalow. Preserving the existing building envelope, the ground floor and first floor were tranformed to provide additional bedrooms and a versatile social area with Kitchen, Living and Dining opening up to a new outdoor entertaining area. The private bedroom spaces were placed within the reworked first floor, with the addition of fixed windows to the Northern facade dramatically improving the natural light withtin the dwelling.
