This late federation house had been long ago converted into two dwellings, one at the front and one awkwardly laid out at the rear.
The brief was to return it to being one dwelling, and add additional bedrooms without taking up any additional space.
The form of the house demanded a subtle approach in order to not simply extrude the floor plan upwards, and retain the charming geometry of the existing roof. The new rooms were built largely into the existing roof space, and with the addition of some modest sized dormer windows, and a couple of skylights, gave the house the required additional space whilst retaining the scale and form of the original.
