Prospect House Extension


An open contemporary living area has been created at the rear of an historic Prospect villa that embraces the existing garden.  The kitchen/living/dining opens up to the verandah and garden through expansive cafe doors, creating an outdoor room.  The generous verandah has a deep cantilevered roof, providing shelter from sun and rain, with no visual obstruction to views of the garden.  This cantilevered verandah effectively creates a garden room where nature can be fully enjoyed in an inner Adelaide suburb.

Herringbone parquetry timber floors provide a warm interior with high ceilings integrating acoustic absorption, adding to the functionality and amenity of the space.  A cantilevered window seat provides a restful place of repose overlooking the open living area and garden.  Marble benches in the kitchen and bathroom contribute to the crisp contemporary aesthetic.
