A major transformation of this arts and crafts style home has turned what was once a tired ugly duckling into a magnificent, crafted residence.

The key to the transformation was the re-working of the mansard style roof and breaking down the massing to introduce sculpted elements such a bay windows and balconies into the roof lines.

An amazing refresh for this old-style home

Creating beautiful lines with bay windows and balconies

Transforming the home to emphasise depth and detail

Complete design overhaul

Another key driver in the design was the re-planning of the family room over the garage. We completely re-planned this room to showcase its location.

With the introduction of new verandahs both at the front and rear, the room now opens seamlessly out onto these verandahs, and also takes advantage of the openness to the west of the home and its aspects.

Sculpted elements and fine lines

“John Hooghuis, the Design Director at Playoust Churcher Architects, had an inherent understanding of the brief, and his design created a classic Roseville family home with wonderful proportions, depth and detail. It’s now recognised as a stand-out in the area – people slow down and stare as they drive past.”
