A new living area
The clients engaged Ardent to revitalise the rear of their house and outdoor area. The couple wanted a living area that opened out on to a large entertaining area that adjoined a pool area.
Internally the kitchen and living area were reconfigured to provide more open and welcoming space filled with sunlight. The addition of the butlers pantry and laundry allowed for a larger living space to be created.
The outdoor area has a mechanical louver roof to allow for control of sun and rain depending on the time of year and weather.
As architects we were looking to utilise materials that required no maintenance so that the works looked crisp and clean for their lifetime. The choice of a dark block was to tie in with the black steel and framing.
