Wattle Park

Residential – Renovation + Extension

The main priority for this client was to maximise the views and amplify the connection to the surrounding landscape – the whole reason they were originally drawn to the property. This tired 1980s brown brick house was transformed into a contemporary linear plan home, offering optimal orientation to the vast city and sea views over Adelaide. Design features include inverted arched windows, brise soliel for energy efficiency/privacy, glass and stone conservatory, infinity edge swimming pool, epic covered entertaining area with hanging garden, stone and steel wine room, 8-metre stone blade wall and internal lift.

Embracing the natural and taking cues from the landscape – the design offers elegant simplicity with relaxed, yet bold earthy aesthetics. This haven of natural light celebrates organic elements and authentic materials, all coming together to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A perfect collection of ingredients for a timeless and classically beautiful family home. An impressive design created from humble beginnings that addresses all the family’s needs while offering a strikingly unique design.
