To create a light, airy family home sympathetic to the exisiting architecture with the addition of a first floor. The whole house was to be fully rennovated and re-modelled whilst keeping some of the heritage features such as traditonal cornicing, timber fretwork and fireplaces. The upstairs needed to include 3 bedrooms (one with an ensuite), a family bathroom, a linen cupboard, and high cathedral ceilings. The ground floor needed guest accomodation, another bathroom and a large open plan kitchen/living/dining area flowing onto a back entertaining deck. Another must was a large butlers pantry.
