Roy Hodgson Design

This design is a successful merger of old and new, respecting and enhancing the heritage attributes of a classic interwar residence. It has breathed new life into the many retained original features and integrated them with an elegant and light-filled extension. Taking full advantage of the northerly aspect available, the addition provides effective indoor-outdoor connectivity by utilising a level change, which also denotes an articulated transition from existing to new. The outcome is a stunning transformation of a period home into a bright, passive-solar contemporary space that retains the grace of its original era at the street frontage, and provides a modern garden-connected addition.
