This renovation project adds streetscape interest to the existing dwelling, making the most of the views.

The out-dated brickwork was rendered & painted and the front doors replaced to provide a modern look.

The lounge room was dramatically improved by constructing a L-shaped highlight roof over, bringing natural light and increased ceiling height. This also assists with solar access throughout the day and allows natural ventilation for optimum room temperature.

Peter Downes received an AWARD by the Builders Designers Association for his design.
