When the Dewdney’s purchased their home, they discovered a large, under-utilised basement area. Their wish-list was to have a bar area, pool room and home theatre room, connected to the upper living area via a spiral stair, but separated from the noise. The final result is spectacular, although technically difficult to achieve, with under-pinning existing footings, achieving waterproofing, termite proofing and drainage in an exceptionally narrow space, re-piping plumbing, acoustic insulation, custom designed stairs, custom designed joinery, curved glass block walls and custom lighting design. The results speak for themselves.
This extension was originally intended as a small addition of a bedroom and study for their grand-daughter. After our first meeting we co-created an extra sitting room and master bed suite, and renovated an existing bedroom into a bed/study space for the grand-daughter.
The result is a spacious new entry, a new master bedroom suite and a new sitting room with a wrap around verandah, seamlessly integrated into the original design of the home.
