The brief for this Takapuna home alteration called for an updated external appearance including integration of a new double garage space into the existing structure and an updated porch and entry area.
The house entrance was altered both outside, where freshly detailed steps and porch replaced the old approach, and inside, where a new lobby was formed to open, via generous glazed and bi-folding doors into the lounge room. The work also included the installation of a new modernly equipped and skylit laundry.
Windows at ground floor level were replaced to create more space and light within and the existing dormer window on the north elevation was remodelled to align with the refreshed style of the house.
New landscaping complemented the alteration and the result is a more substantially detailed home with additional facilities and improved natural light and spaciousness.
