The brief

To consolidate the floorplan and make functional use of the spaces, while converting the exterior additions and existing into a contemporary design.

The solution

By maintaining the existing first floor and footprint below, the new plan re-organises the ground level by reducing the setback to the front yard by extending. A consolidated spine anchors the home, and column removal at the rear opens up the living area to the backyard.
