Fretwell Residence, East Lindfield, Sydney, Australia
Project: Addition and Alteration to existing single storey dwelling
Location: East Lindfield, Sydney, Australia
Date: 2007 - 2008
The initial project brief was for the addition of two rooms to be used as a master bedroom and a sitting room respectively. The design solution located these in a proposed second storey. A new rear deck to the ground floor as well as a first floor deck, located above the existing sunroom as well as an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe to the master bedroom where also part of the proposed design.
Wanting to keep the existing historic character of the hopuse was instrumental in the planning process. As such the Front elevation was maintained as is with a slight extension of the existing roof and the addition of two front dormers. These allowed for cross ventilation while where in keeping with the Front facade.
