Louisa Street House

Louisa Street, Summer Hill

house, $300 000 completed in 2007

This residence is the first in this street to have first floor additions approved. The Development Application     and Construction Certificate were obtained from Council, and construction began in August 2006. Olsson & Associates Architects prepared a statement of Environmental and Urban Design Principles, which was instrumental in gaining approval.

The design meets the clients’ wishes for a first floor studio and a completely re-built ground floor living, dining, kitchen and bathroom. The roof forms complement the existing roofs, while adding a long, horizontal, contemporary dormer window. High ceilings and very wide timber framed doors at ground floor level create a spacious appearance.

Extensive construction detailing, material selection and specification were the basis for the construction documentation for the builder to price. Olsson & Associates Architects are administering the contract during construction.
