Designed & built by Wandoo Design & Construction
A simple, quality extension to a classic Perth brick and tile bungalow including a Great Room with particularly gracious and unusual proportions and interesting features which negotiate the transition from old to new.
Project Details: 2015 – 2017 Nedlands $450,000 2 year concept to build full scope of service including full design revision after first approvals phase due to budget and brief change for an addition in keeping with a medium sized, medium quality 1940s brick and tile bungalow with timber floors on limestone foundations with dark stained timber door and window carpentry and fireplaces. Pragmatic addition of carport, re-roofing, new attic in huge roofspace, repair of existing spaces and new rear additional rooms and amenity to suit a large family; built with very high quality craftsmanship to a voluminous double height Great Room in the American tradition of the Arts and Crafts Bungalow using recycled, remilled old-growth jarrah to all new solid timber second fixing carpentry. Fancy horizontal brickwork laid in stackbond, stretcher bond and incorporating shadow lines by half-brick steps influenced by the Chicago style to an enormous modern fireplace with interconnecting solid timber stair treads and shelving. Highly ornate fancy ceiling work with a very large Art Deco geometric ceiling rose and detailed geometric cornices, aligning with highlight windows bathing the room in soft light. Build in progress to finish 2017.
