Type | House Addition

Completed | 2018

Area | 90 sqm

A new double garage and rumpus room for three teenage boys; detached from the existing residence with access to a rear lane. A much-welcomed addition to a family home, providing space to unwind and socialise independently.

The two-storey structure sits comfortably within its context without encroaching on the modest backyard area. It is clad externally with express jointed, black stained plywood and wrapped in a timber batten screen at the upper level.

The screen obscures outlook from the rumpus room, minimising overlooking issues, while providing protection from the sun. At night, the warm glow through the battens creates a lantern-like effect.
