Residence Newmarket

Residence Newmarket

This residence is located on an elevated slope with the rear facing west over distant Mt Cootha and beyond. The original building was a late Interwar type which turned its back on the mountain views. The renovation comprised of a rear addition involving a wonderfully proportioned Living area with a curved plywood ceiling and a large protected window which took in the mountain views. The addition was flanked by a new northern deck and a revamped kitchen. Apart from the bathroom being brought up to date, the original layout was modified to suit a dining area on the northern side and bedrooms on the southern side.
