Guildford House Alterations + Additions

Our brief was for a relaxed low maintenance family home incorporating their love of gardening, outdoor living and family entertaining.

While the Shire’s design guidelines for heritage precincts determined the external materiality selections and roof pitch for the addition the opportunity for contemporary, sun-filled living spaces integrated with and respectful of the older rooms linked with discrete garden courtyards and a separate entertaining pavilion.  The house demonstrates that heritage and quiet contemporary are not mutually exclusive.
