With the stairway clearly delineating the second level into the living area on one side and the kitchen and dining on the other the need for additional internal partitions has been completely done away with.
It was Architects EAT who decided to give the residence a façade unlike any other with a white aluminum screen that keeps away prying eyes and helps shape a more intimate entrance zone. It also preserves a sense of mystery as one is greeted by a blue front gate lovely grasscrete hanging plants and a serene ambiance.
This also further ushered in natural light and spaces of the original Victorian Residence that were previously dark now feel cheerful and inviting. The refurbished interior feels both contemporary and classic with the old gently transitioning into the new!
It is this continuous presence of brick that gives the addition its unique appeal even as the lovely clerestory windows above usher in a hint of modern industrial flair.
