This is a renovation project from a typical developer house. The layout and styling is a typical row house even though this particular house located at the corner, and has trapezium plot shape with lovely side garden view.
The client asked to revise the layout by injecting new function that could organise ground floor rooms as well to create connection to the shape and the location of the plot land.
The output is an enhanced old house with a transparent new shape, where the side garden becomes a prominent feature that is central to the family activities. Its roof top is also utilised for seating and barbecue area that is accessible from the main bedroom. New materials such as cement tile flooring, bigger window frames, paint and wooden deck are also applied throughout the old house, give it a modern feel to accomodate new activities.
