Renovation and extension in Glen Iris
The property was under Heritage overlay and close to Monash Freeway. The concept was to link the front and the back garden through a linear walkway, which serves all the private areas and lead to the entertaining ones. The deck in the front is angled towards the front gate so it is more inviting; it continues through the porch and leads you through a nice journey through the back deck. The existing house was renovated to accommodate the private bedroom spaces with their amenities. The new extension focused on the public space without undermining the character of the existing house. As the property is close to the freeway, this arrangement made it suitable to enjoy the outdoors without being affected by the noise.
