The COBURG Cutie
New Build 2018
Site Area: 306sqm
Floor Area: 66sqm
Great things come in small packages. This Coburg 'Cutie' is a well kept two bedroom Californian cottage that provides a few challenges.
It has no rear yard, an expansive north facing street frontage and a difficult floor plan to massage.
The clients were keen to keep the front facade in tact so we proposed a rear extension that hugged the boundaries where it could and enclosed a small courtyard with a north eastern aspect.
A new saw tooth roof would let in light and provide a modern scandi/ warehouse aesthetic that the clients were seeking.
New french doors from the master and fenced courtyard setback from the street boundary would increase their private open space and opportunities for cups of tea in the sunshine.
