Thornbury Extension

This project maximises natural light to a south facing extension, while strategically extending the rear of the existing house to mesh with the existing house. A double glazed outlook maximises a lage yard outlook, while minimising overlooking from neighbouring flats. The new works comprise the replacement of a rear toilet and laundry area with a new kitchen, living , dining, laundry and main bedroom with ensuite. The existing house has been reconfigured to provide a new larger bathroom, study and reconfigured 3rd bedroom. The finished house utilises salvaged materials from the demolition works as well as sourced salvaged materials from other buildings.

This is an extension to a double fronted Californian Bungalow in "Thornbury's Best Street" as identified by The Age, which proposes the bulk of demolished materials to be reused in an extensive renovation and extension comprising new bathroom, study, kitchen, dining, living, laundry, passage, main bedroom with ensuite, along with external decking under a pergola structure. The roofspace is also proposed to be converted in to an accessible storage loft, with the existing diamond shaped gable vent converted to a window.

A comprehensive schedule for potential items for reuse in the works was carried out, identifying Baltic Pine flooring and wall paneling, bricks, timber rafters, beams, weatherboards, windows, fittings, cornices, skirtings, architraves, cabinetry and doors, the majority of which is proposed for reuse.

The proposed arrangement of forms, rooms and spaces responds to the owner's brief to accommodate a new family, working with the existing house, maximising natural lighting and the aspect to the productive rear garden, while providing a sense of privacy from the neighbouring block of flats.
