A project comprising the inhabitation of a roof space.
Our clients approached us to remedy a situation where an existing double storey extension at the rear of the property failed to take advantage of views toward the ocean, nor did it harness prevailing breezes or north-light.
Their desire was to push west within the existing roof space, to culminate in a roof terrace behind the existing shopfront parapet.
The result is a 'floating' mezzanine home-office space, pulled back from the edges of the building to funnel daylight to the ground floor and create a spatial connection between levels.
Retractable external venetian blinds will allow sun-control through the glazed roof sections. The existing second storey is wrapped in standing seam zincalume to integrate it architecturally with the new intervention. Internally, white predominates to offset the clients' collection of colourful objects.
