With the help of Martins Camisuli Architects Tania and Mike made the decision to create a larger, brighter, open plan kitchen / living room at the back end of their property, to remove a disused and cramped attic to allow daylight to filter throughout the home and to add a third bedroom above the newly created extension.
“Martins Camisuli Architects came highly recommended to us by family friends,” says Tania. “It was fantastic that we were able to see first-hand the quality of their work in a number of homes in the area – it really put our minds at ease that we were making the right choice. We particularly liked the way the team used simple but effective design to make the most of the space available.”
Leading on the project was MD Sebastian Camisuli and one of his first recommendations was to introduce natural light from above throughout the house.
With Fortess Grove sitting in a conservation area, there were limits on external fenestration meaning that the Voadens were restricted from using large picture windows to allow light in. Sebastian’s solution was to add VELUX roof windows to all three of the bedrooms, the upstairs bathroom and in the newly created kitchen, giving each space a real wow factor.
The use of VELUX INTEGRA® centre-pivot roof windows in white polyurethane finish allowed for the maximum amount of daylight and fresh air to enter the home, while keeping the look clean and contemporary throughout.
