ELSTERNWICK HOUSE

ADDITIONS & ALTERATIONS

With an expanded family, the client's brief for this project was an upwards extension to this 1930's Elwood home and updated kitchen and living spaces. With the existing dwelling having a clear visual identity, we felt it was important to have a clearly defined modern aspect to the addition, rather than to try and blend in. The silvertop ash shiplap cladding in a raw natural finish will age and vary over time, and provides a simple, elegant contrast to the existing heritage look and feel below.
