Woollahra Council has granted Development Consent for the extensive alterations + additions to this single-storey house in Rose Bay.
Ground Floor renovations will include a new two-car Garage, the creation of a Rumpus Room and new Kitchen.
The new First Floor will contain 5 Bedrooms, a Study and Bathrooms. Both of the front Bedrooms open onto the tiled Terrace above the Garage.
The brief from the owners included a request for future development of the roof space to create a Gym/Recreation area, without the need to increase the height of the roof.
In order to achieve this requirement:
- we designed the raised section of roof with ventilation between the low and raised roofs;
- The roof over the stair is designed to accommodate the additional stair flights without the need for alteration;
- The First Floor ceiling will be constructed as a load-bearing floor for the future Gym;
- The ventilation grilles will be replaced with operable windows and roof windows installed to render the space habitable.
The scale model, shown in the photographs, was produced for the benefit of the owners and for submission to Council in support of the Development Application.
