ORMOND ESPLANADE HOUSE

A significant intervention and extension to a rare Hacienda style house in Elwood. The obliteration of the existing modernist first floor addition and the extension of the house to add a third floor consolidate the dwelling’s outer skin. The simple proportions and white layered profile of the heritage ground floor inspire a first and second floor of hierarchical volumes. A translucent lightweight material creates a light filled interior and provides a neutral intervention aiming at consistency and singularity. The generously sized existing terraces are maintained and landscaped to extend the garden through every floor.
