“Equal levels of care were attributed to the restoration works and the contemporary addition, and the project was delivered ahead of schedule.”
Sarah Bryant, Bryant Alsop

Tasked with renovating a water-damaged Edwardian home, we collaborated with Bryant Alsop architects to craft a classic-meets-contemporary residence. Despite challenges like preserving a monumental backyard tree and pandemic-related setbacks, we delivered within the agreed timeline. Our innovative solutions, such as building a cantilevered slab around tree roots and flipping the staircase, ensured success. We managed to preserve the charm of the home while blending old and new with shared living spaces and generous glazing, the home boasts a double-height staircase and central courtyard for abundant natural light. Curved glass and brick walls seamlessly merge indoors with outdoors, while light finishes enhance durability and brightness. 

Recognised as a finalist in the HIA housing awards for the best renovation in its category our transformation achieves a harmonious fusion of past and present.
