Located in the Forrest Housing Precinct in Canberra’s Inner South, this renovation and extension improved the liveabilty and condition of this beautiful heritage asset. A relatively small addition of garage and guest suite belies the extent of the renovation which reset the roof to be in keeping with the original style of the house and saw every room refurbished.

The centre of the house where the kitchen is located was opened up with structural gymnastics and connected to the outside with large bifolds and glazed walls and has become the perfect family gathering place. The unused tennis court and surrounds were transformed into a truly beautiful setting by Paul Bangay Garden Design.

This house won multiple awards at the Housing Industry Awards and most importantly the clients love living in their “new house”.
