HOUSE ALTERATION AND ADDITION – CHATSWOOD

The site locates in the southern side of Sydney most vibrant precinct, Chatswood. The site is right on the edge national park which offers the opportunity to obtain a great forest view towards the rear garden and balconies.

On site is a single storey (double towards the rear) brick dwelling with terracotta tile roof which is likely constructed in 1950s and a swimming pool in the rear garden.

The architecture resolution in this particular circumstance is keeping most of the back bones and apply a layer of contemporary living overlapping to the existing. The main living space is opened up and extend to the rear garden which create a box window to appreciate the green. Another level of bedrooms are added on the top comprising three large size bedroom and ensuites. A generous roof top terrace provides another platform to enjoy the leafy environment. Front façade is designed in a traditional fashion that consistent with the surrounding street scape whereas rear portion presents a modern level of luxury living.

Landscape design creates an organic dialogue between the nature and built environment. By introducing a series of path forming by green, it generates a narrative that lead you into the national park.
