The Roseville House project involved alterations and additions to a large Federation family home. The works included new bedroom accommodation, living spaces, landscaping and car access.
The existing street façade is retained and enhanced with a new modern colour scheme. The addition to the rear sits respectfully under the existing eave and cantilevers over the kitchen to reach into the garden.
A feature ornamental screen directs the visitor through a light filled central circulation void. This leads down to the new living spaces that cascade down the site in response to the slope of the land.
The building terminates in a covered rear deck that spans the width of the yard. The deck provides an interface between the living area and the mature garden and pool beyond.
