we begin design work to an existing art deco home in original condition. attached along one side to a mirror-image neighbor, this semi detached is an original example of the 1930s architecture common within its surrounding area.
home to a young and growing family, it becomes clear that this home requires not only reworking to address the functional requirements of a growing family, but also additional spaces to accommodate their future needs.
a key driver in the initial planning studies is to utilise the footprint of the existing out-buildings, to provide the additional space required while maximising the garden area. replanning of the existing spaces aims to delineate the home into both public and private zones, while maintaining the original period detailing to the primary rooms. through replanning, we address the internal focus of the original art deco planning, by providing connection and extension of the living areas into the garden.
