A single-storey suburban dwelling was transformed into a contemporary family home that retained the charm of a "Californian Bungalow".
The house was a single-storey that had been "renovated" over numerous years. The owners wanted an upper-level addition consisting of a family room, bathroom, two bedrooms, study and storage. The new level was to have full-height ceilings but appear as an attic addition from the street.
The front elevation to the street was to remain a single storey and had to externally appear as if it was all built at the same time and not impact on all the earlier renovations.
