Borrowed Garden House


Status: Design Developement

This 1960s brick house opens to a north facing backyard with borrowed views to the trees of the adjoining park. The original front of the house containing bedrooms and bathrooms is retained and refurbished while a 1980s rear family room addition is extended and reworked. This room at the back enjoys a lofty roof form that provides a sunny outlook and quality of spaciousness. Sliding glazed doors connect the living space to the backyard and a timber pergola tempers harsh sun.
