This brief provided the unique challenge of appropriately dealing with the existing old corner deli shop which was heritage listed and was not allowed to be demolished or altered in any significant way yet was in desperate need of restoration. The brief here focused on future use. With children growing older into their teens, clients wanted to design a house which would enable reasonably separation of adults from children.
The shop was stripped internally and converted into a large open Living area with attached Verandah and overlooking the pool enabling it to be used for entertaining.
There was a special consideration here to design a façade that was both modern but also complimented the historical and traditional look of the existing shop façade which was restored.
