Project Information

Malvern East

The renovation to this large single storey Californian Bungalow, in a tree-lined street in a heritage area, largely exists within the original walls. The home provides distinct zones for different activities, the spaces flow to create a contemporary, light filled but unique living environment, that also relates to the buildings heritage. Central to the living spaces is the lofty and light filled sitting room which draws in light from all sides with its clerestory roof. The rear forms draw inspiration from some parts of California modernism with their flat roofs, projecting beams and full height sliding windows opening up to a rear deck and backyard. The large lilly-pilly tree at the rear was retained and has meant that the deck is sheltered from north sun and the morning light is filtered into the sitting room.
