Northam House - Steel Framed Print

Steel framed weatherboard home addition to a gorgeous character house in Northam. 

Original weatherboards were carefully removed during demolition of a previous addition for re-use on the most visible side of the new addition.  New weatherboards were used on the remainder of the building.  The home was designed to wrap around an existing grove of mature cocos palms.

Design features inlcude high ceilings to maintain the original character, an angled step-down from the living area of the original dwelling, french doors and highlight windows to improve cross-ventilation and natural cooling and to capture an abundance of natural light.  A timber deck area is also provided immediately outside the living area.
