Alterations & Additions
Position, position, position. The owners of this property had originally owned a townhouse on The Esplanade overlooking the beach but they didn't like the main road or the passing traffic. They sold this and bought a three unit development just around the corner from The Torquay Esplanade. The front unit overlooked a native bushland reserve and, with the addition of a first floor, it now captures sea views. Our clients now have the best of both worlds.
Initially, our clients came to us with a preliminary concept design. We worked together to finalize a proposal that impresses all those who pass by.
The resulting building is a far cry from the original single storey orange brick unit. It gives the impression of a large modern residence rather than a unit or townhouse. The alfresco area on the right front corner makes the most of the available outlook and the glass doors and corner windows in the open plan living area means that the panoramic views are visible from inside as well.
Our client's flair for interior design has resulted in a number of interesting features throughout the home.
The rapport we built up with our clients throughout this project has resulted in an ongoing working relationship.
