MOUNT ALBERT HOUSE 1
Adding a pavillion in the rear yard of this freestanding Mount Albert (NZ) house improves outdoor accessibility and provides addtional open plan living areas. A swimming pool set within a hardwood deck with sheltered entertaining areas enhances enjoyment of the rear yard. The renovations include an ensuite, two bathrooms and kitchen.
With the existing garage already used for storage, a carport is added in the front yard to provide shelted parking and entry to the building. This new parking is excavated into the slope of the yard and surrounded by extensive planting to screen the carport from the street, minimising the visual impact. A small deck at the front provides views over the carport to the western ranges and afternoon sun.
