Ward House | Sam Crawford Architects

This c1950 Post War Austere Style dwelling sits within a heritage conservation area in Roseville, and had already undergone a problematic extension in the 1980s. Whilst presenting a single storey towards the street, the sloping site left the rear of the house perched giddily above the garden, providing no connection to the outdoors, whilst the western sun beat unmediated into the family areas. The brief included reconfiguring some internal rooms to provide a modernised bathroom, laundry and master bedroom, whilst providing a contemporary kitchen, dining and living space with deck.
