Durability and sustainability were the key design generators for this renovation and extension project. Key design principals included siting and orientation, thermal zoning, passive heating, natural light and ventilation, durability & longevity of materials, connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.
A local interior designer provided direction for the internal materials selection and colour scheme, which fostered the owner’s natural tendency toward an industrial aesthetic, common in warehouse conversions.
The design responded successfully to the local heritage overlay.
“Ryan designed an extension to our 1930’s red brick home to vastly improve the passive solar performance of the house. In addition, he smartly reconfigured the existing spaces to better meet our needs. Ryan spent time getting to know us personally before starting the design process. He listened carefully to our needs and created a design that surpassed our dreams. We felt at ease at once with Ryan as he has a relaxed and confident manner which encouraged us to relax and enjoy the design process. He is faultless in his attention to detail and documentation; which very much impressed our builder and ourselves. We are so happy with our new home that this testimonial alone cannot do justice to how lucky we feel in choosing Ryan as our Architect”.
