urban villa upgrade (ponsonby)

Location: Ponsonby

Duration: 40 weeks

Designer: Salmond Reed Architects

This tired villa was given a new lease on life

The house had undergone a previous lean to addition and the scope of work involved completely demolishing this structure but retaining the existing villa structure. The old villa was given a makeover including a new bathroom, ensuite and walk in wardrobe. A new modern addition was pushed out the back creating a new living area.

The owners were interested in creating an outdoor living area that was usable all year round. Salmond Reed Architects designed an outdoor patio where the outside environment could be controlled using operable louvres and roll down exterior blinds.

The finished product represents the best of old world charm mixed with cutting edge modern design.
