“The Cadence business plan and the culture that trickles down throughout the organisation is very refreshing. It has actually been an enjoyable and remarkably stress-free journey, and that is high praise indeed.” – Jim & Sylvia
The original 1930’s dwelling, with its beautifully proportioned and detailed spaces had undergone a dramatically severe modernist rear addition. The task was to bring these elements together more successfully, to unify their aesthetic and to integrate the house with its landscaping.
The clients had a sophisticated and very subtle eclectic style, which was a pleasure to respond to in detailing the new elements of the house. The approach was to unify the materiality of the rear of the house using natural timber claddings and decking, while opening the spaces onto the terrace and landscape. New landscaping gives the rear spaces the feeling of a lush forest.
