Project Turner Avenue
Location New Farm
Architect Chris Lillis
Project Engineer Peter Ide/Matthew Gibbs
The extensive extension to the existing character listed Queenslander residence is over a sloping site and required the retaining walls to be incorporated into the timber framed floors. The architect also required the depth of new roof to be kept to a minimum.
Westera Partners consulted closely with both the architect and builder to ensure the design met all architectural expectations and allowed for a smooth process from design to final construction.
The project has managed to embrace the original character of the existing house and bring it back to its former glory while gracefully adding the modern extension to the rear. The composition of the new and old has been greatly appreciated by the local community and has significantly contributed to the street scape of the suburb.
