Involving the substantial renovation and enlargement of an existing wood framed two story, three bedroom house; this design aims to wrap the house around the outside living room of the rear yard with its many oak trees and azaleas. Whereas the existing house has dark and gloomy interiors, the new design opens up the house both in the interior and to its new exterior spaces. The design provides a quiet entry facade and then opens up in a burst of energy as the view, confined at the entry; is then released on entering the living space to provide a 150 degree view of the sun dappled woodland.
Quieter, calmer and more private spaces are then provided on both the first floor and second floor in the form of a Living / Study, the first floor second Master Bedroom and the second floor Family Bedrooms.
