The Brunswick House project by Chan Architecture is the renovation of a semi-detached, single fronted Edwardian terrace house.

The site of the house created a unique series of challenges and the Chan Architecture team had to develop a design for a modern, flexible, light-filled space despite limited site access and a tight budget.

Chan Architecture designed the extension to be built to boundary on both sides with high ceilings, light internal materials and strategically placed skylights to bring the light in from above.

The materials used by Chan Architecture were carefully chosen to provide each room with its own unique sense of individuality. Every aspect of this stunning renovation was planned out precisely during the design stage and every element used in the home serves a purpose.

The external view from the backyard was designed to showcase the clean, rectilinear lines of the first floor extension with fine perimeter detailing, and the vertical batten cladding providing visual depth and transparency to the façade. The steel box around the window provides shelter, shading and privacy to the upstairs windows.

The studio also designed the cabinetry to be customised to the client’s specifications allowing the kitchen and dining areas to completely open up onto the stunning backyard space.
