We are currently working with our client with a heritage listed residence in Epping. The extension centres around a courtyard which has been carefully positioned to receive the northerly aspect which allows for light to maximised within the dwelling. The rear extension transitions over a series of steps following the contours of the land to allow for a seamless connection to it outdoor courtyard providing a higher ceiling space over the living areas.

One of the unique aspects of the Australia, is our temperate climate, it gives us the opportunity to design homes for seamless indoor and outdoor living and to be used for a large portion of the year. Our outdoor spaces are typically designed for entertaining and include a dining and lounge area with a covered roof. To get the benefits of both light and shade, we have started to design our outdoor areas with retractable roof systems which provide the flexible use of the outdoor area without restricting light to the internal sections of the residence.
The internal configuration of the residence needs to be carefully considered around any outdoor space, as often you are trying to configure living spaces towards its outdoor environment yet there are practical aspects such as a having a TV which needs a backdrop for viewing.
