Project Title
Transitional Villa Alteration
A large transitional villa lacked connection to the sloped garden and was on an open corner site. A level front garden is formed by creating retaining the site on the boundary and providing a double garage under a green roof lawn. An earlier alteration is removed from the north side of the house and a new addition constructed that opens out to a private, level garden and swimming pool. The project is currently being documented and is due to start construction later this year.
