A strategic reworking of a convoluted plan reviving an unassuming family dwelling. This project transformed a dark, post-war rabbit warren into a light-filled home that embraces its beautiful bush setting.  

In the client’s own words, the design has “facilitated better life flow, providing a generosity of space while also creating a greater sense of connectivity throughout the house.  We can now easily entertain small and large groups without being on top of each other, and on a day to day basis the family can enjoy privacy without needing to feel shut away.”
