- The renovation included both internal & external scope to an existing double brick dwelling. The internal living spaces were relocated & reconfigured to maximise the canal front location & outlook whilst also considering the practical elements of the reconfiguration.
The existing dwelling for a young family had a disconnect between internal spaces so the intent was to reconnect these spaces with allowed interaction when utilised whilst also incorporating the natural elements of the site & opening to the canal front setting.
The design detailing responds to the East facing canal frontage with a deck roof form that hints to the nautical elements of the site. Horizontal batten screening breaks the mass of the roof form down whilst allowing dappled light to the deck space.
