Fyffe Street House
These alterations & additions to an existing house in Thornbury include the provision of a new side entry which conveniently delivers occupants & visitors into the centre of the house while reducing the amount of internal corridors.
A new North-facing rear replaces the chaotic old lean-to & provides an open-plan kitchen, living & dining area with adjacent sun-filled deck areas & formal living/ study over.
The new extension embraces the sun (while also providing strategic shade) & welcomes the outside inside.
A new front verandah enables occupant interactivity with the front garden & quiet street beyond.
Thermal envelope has been upgraded with retro-insulation & provision of double-glazed timber windows.
A few circular elements, some fancy tiling & elegantly detailed plywood have also been incorporated.
