Castlecrag Extension: Concept Design
December 11, 2020
Tucked away in the quiet reserves of Griffin Heritage Conservation Area, the existing two storey residence was built in the 1940s. The house is representative of some unique architectural characters of the Arts and Crafts style, with a distance view to North Sydney. However, its external timber elements and face brickworks have deteriorated overtime, and a traditionally planned interior space separates the main dwelling from the large back garden.
Keeping the original fabric intact, a pavilion style rear addition is proposed. The contemporary kitchen living dining area is celebrated via heightened ceiling and an open plan arrangement. To its side, a new master bedroom with ensuite also provides private access from the carport. A smaller, lighter connector between heritage existing and PWA’s open plan extension, invites a pleasant journey through the landscaped courtyard that is open to the tranquil surrounds, air and sun.
