This californian bungalow in Balgowlah has been transformed into a contemporary family home with a rear extension and upper floor addition.
The upper floor addition is designed to be a sensitive addition to a typical single storey californian bungalow. The addition is set back off the street, to the rear of the property and maintains the existing roof pitch and the asymmetrical gables. Given the sloping site, district views to the north east and a north aspect along the length of the home, a north facing roof garden and rear balcony contribute to a more contemporary rear (southern) and side (northern) elevation.
From the street the facade was transformed through a selection of paint colours that provide contrast and light, highlighting the traditional detailing. The rear living spaces now open up to the rear yard and new pool, providing views and access to a once overgrown and underutilised backyard.
