Norwood Contemporary Addition
Uniting a heritage structure, formerly divided into two dwellings, now one family home.
Also spacious, light and sustainably designed.
Arranged in 2 levels, 1 half submerged into the site.
Its heritage component was to be kept and any additions was to address the heritage nature.
Height, light and ventilation in the lower level were to be reviewed, while the upper levels required a
comprehensive change to bring building to a single dwelling and expand the living to accommodate a 5 person household.
North set outdoor living with retractable shade, covering 20kL in ground rainwater tank which feeds all requirements,
its separated from the stair well by an opening to ground level.
Thus allows light and winter solar gain in order to penetrate the lower level.
