This project is a transformation of a typical red brick house into a contemporary dwelling.
With excellent solar orientation and extensive views across lake Macquarie, the core focus of the project involved retaining and extending an existing open-plan living space to maximize the site opportunities. This was created by the two loggia that straddle the central living space and create the dominant aesthetic of the building. Special metal finished panels and painted lime green sheet cladding are used on the loggia elements whilst the painted brickwork becomes an abstract, flowing connector of the materials and forms with the physical realities of the site.
