A celebration of heritage, Terrace was assigned to Construct AU by a retiring couple that wanted an outbuilding to host their gatherings and a re-design of their private open space that suites the modifications.
The clients wanted to build a house that respected the mid-century character of the neighbourhood, while pursuing a bold and contemporary approach to design. The outcome is a project which creates a strong and often surprising connection between contemporary and heritage architecture, with an angular roof form that simultaneously camouflages and contrasts the existing house with the extension. The vertical timber studs compliment the courtyard design that gives a feeling of a country-side home to the outdoor space. The extension provided the clients with an additional living room, kitchen, alfresco, BBQ area, Pool, and courtyards.
