Mid Century Modern Home Renovation By Jamison Architects

The mid century modern home was the upper duplex of an original early 1980’s duplex building, practically pinned to the side of the steep hill, the site drops away from beneath it. In essence the brief was to open up the living spaces to the incredible view that had been restricted by a low roof and small windows and add a second storey with master suite and outside entertainment area so that their fantastic location could be aptly enjoyed.

Site access was difficult and the logistics of fire separation, town planning requirements and structural challenges with adding the additional storey provided a myriad of design and construction challenges. The result has been well worth the effort and the new home is a testament to everyone working together to achieve the greater goal. Enjoy the house tour of this Modern House Renovation .
