This federation style house faces west which made it extremely hot in summer and cold in winter. It also had an existing swimming pool in the backyard which greatly restricted maneuverability for any renovation work. However, these obstacles did not stop David Baillie Architect from designing an energy efficient home which has delighted its owner.
The renovation has moved the kitchen and created an additional bedroom plus an alfresco dining area. The design featured long eves over the eating area to provide shade in summer and opened up the north side to provide sun in winter.
