The space and beauty of this Annandale home has been dramatically enhanced by Christopher Polly Architect at the same time as introducing a number of sustainable design qualities to the home. Originally a 2-bedroom house with a single living space, a much more liveable abode has been achieved, complete with 4 bedrooms and two living spaces. The architectural additions and modifications have been sensitively incorporated to deliver a harmonious look and feel, and a more comfortable and spacious interior.
A larger ground floor is enhanced with additional natural light, while a roof venting system and ceiling fans provide environment-conscious ventilation. Vaulted ceilings and skylights carved within the original roof increase exposure to the sky and light and enable lush tree views from the upper level.
The enhanced architecture is minimalist, modern and elegant with pristine white interiors offset by sustainable Austral bricks and red cedar sliding doors, while demolished bricks were salvaged to rebuild the homes masonry walls.
