This Joy Street project was for a semi-retired couple who owned a large house outside of the city but wanted to downsize. They owned this small house in the city but it was badly in need of repair work. The client wanted to extend out in to the garden and take advantage of the views out to the church spire at the back of the property.
A full renovation of the house and garden is taking place. A new kitchen and dining space with a reading nook has been created to the rear of the house. A large rooflight allows light down in to the space as well as permitting views up to the church spire. A simple palette of timber, concrete and dark metal has been used throughout.
