New Home Extension

Location: Marrickville, NSW

Architect: Peter Burford

Project rear extension on an early 19th century Victorian style home.

On a block with a south facing yard it was clear to Architect Peter Burford what design was needed to achieve light filled living spaces and entertaining patios .

With a structural steel frame design to allow for glazed large openings, a curved lantern roof ceiling with louvers, highlight windows above the dining area to also allow natural lighting and airflow and solid Blackbutt beams attached to a structural steel frame over the terrace for shade and also to give that floating frame appearance.

The new main bedroom has a light filled new ensuite and an eastern terrace with its own sunken outdoor spa looking out to the new landscaped garden.

The new living areas consist of a new galley type kitchen with a breakfast bar, large dining area, and a great new terrace that raps right around for entertaining.

The whole rear extension was designed on a 20 degree angle to make the most of aspect and privacy.

Materials include:
Flooring: Solid Redgum
Deck: Jarrah
Clear anodized commercial glazing
Canadian oak kitchen upstand
Solid Blackbutt beams and battens over patios
