ORMOND ESPLANADE HOUSE

A two storey extension to a rare Hacienda style house along the Port Philip bay. The refurbishment of the existing modernist first floor addition and the addition of a third floor consolidate the dwelling’s outer skin.

The simple proportions and the layered profile of the Hacienda style ground floor instigate an addition of hierarchical volumes. A semi-translucent lightweight material creates light filled interiors and provides a singular intervention that celebrates the existing conditions. The generously sized existing first floor balconies are maintained and landscaped to provide a garden on every floor.
