1900's home renovation/extension

Location: Burwood, NSW

Architect: Peter Burford

After completing the studio, the owners were ready now to build the main house.

The existing home was a grand old historic premises built roughly in the early 1900’s on a large parcel of land. The challenge was adding to it and doing it justice.

So with that in mind Peter Burford set out to give his clients exactly that.

With the addition facing south Peter had to insure the addition let in maximum amount of natural lighting, therefore designing the whole structure for the main living area out of steel fabrication with large commercial window and door in fills (GJAMES windows and doors).

Due to the extension being built around the perimeter of the existing structure Peter also thought it would be great to leave the existing face bricks untouched internally, in keeping with the era of the home.

With a new kitchen, spa room, dining room overlooking the beautiful backyard due to the extensive use of glass, the owners were very happy.

The owners also added a new laundry, bathroom, main bedroom upstairs with a large en suite and walk in robe.

Some of the finishes used throughout the house consisted of travertine floors, marble in bathrooms, v joint cedar cladding upstairs, tallowood timber in fills on structural beams and marble splash backs in kitchen.
