Typical of the inner west, the Canterbury St project is located on a very narrow site in a sought after tree lined street. The brief for the project is to enhance the living and kitchen areas to the rear of the dwelling and provide a outdoor living space ideal for entertaining. The slenderness of the site plus the desire for lots of natural light and a lean budget all pose challenges on this project - a challenge DMA accept with open arms.
Location: Ascot Vale Completed: 2015
Built to the rear of an existing period style home, the Hurtle St extension provides a contrast between the historical character of the existing dwelling and the modern, open plan living and dining and kitchen space. Materials and proportions were all designed to enhance this juxtaposition while achieving a light filled, dramatic environment for a family of 5. High-end fixtures and fittings were selected along with quality finishes which create a highly sophisticated finish.
