Staged, extensive rear additions to an existing Federation House. The Stage 1 new work, is linked to the old, via a single level glazed walkway, that extends the hallway of the existing house into the new structure.New courtyards and a swimming pool provide elevated outdoor space, either side of the glazed link. Unlike neighbouring extensions, this house respects the fabric of the existing federation house by leaving the entire existing roof form intact and building new work beyond, and lower than the existing period- house form.
A final construction phase at the rear lane access, comprising a self-contained studio apartment over garaging, completes the site development. The apartment of just over 38m2 flows out to an elevated deck enjoying Manly Beach and north and south head views.
Builder: John Barham ; Blackcomb Construction
