Wallflower House


Nestled between a row of old terraces sits this recently completed renovation and extension. The principle notion of this design was to create light-filled spaces that allowed the clients to live comfortably and add their own personal style to each room.

Smart use of  storage and space allows the rich internal palette to be the hero of this house. Strong colours and finishes were used defiantly.  These finishes are emphasised by natural day light entering the house through the use of internal light courts and an arrangement of tube skylights.

Sustainability characteristics include: a small footprint for a three bedroom house; high insulation values; passive solar control with appropriate sun shading; active systems such as solar hot water and solar power; the use of thermally broken windows that are very airtight; large storage water tank underground and general use of recycled materials.
