A tale of “new meets old architecture”. The main building is left untouched albeit minimal upgrade and thus providing an elegant backdrop for the newly introduced entrance porches – front & rear. This duel-like scenery provides a qualitative and complimentary contrast to residents and guests alike.

Light weight materials – glass, steel, timber, aluminium profiles – were largely used through out the scheme to create a graceful entrance area to the main house. Some existing features (such as the creeping plant fence, burglar screen pattern) were incorporated to the new proposal to bridge the link and relationship between the old and new structure.
