a renovation and secondary extension for the expanding family...

 

Working with internationally based client is no longer an issue with today’s technology. Our clients had moved overseas for work and decided to take advantage of their time away to renovate and extend their quasi Californian Bungalow for their expanding family.

 

Being based in Jakarta they were enamoured with indoor/outdoor spaces so we designed the main living areas to be open plan for the most part. With budget in mind, we retained the older formal rooms to the front of the house and then integrated them into the new design. The living spaces open out to the north and take full advantage of the existing high ceilings to create very generous spaces and volumes. The living areas spill out to the entertaining area where the infinity edge pool becomes the real focal point and the cascading water down the feature tile definitely has a lovely cooling an calming effect.

 

The kitchen is the real heart of the house where our clients can keep an eye on their three young daughters whether they are playing on the raised grass terrace, swimming or doing their homework. With every room being renovated it was quite a serious project turning the older style 'rabbit warren' plan into the modern clean crisp space it is now which is full of light and warmth.
