avalon house

Home to a growing young family, the Avalon house needed more floor space and a more liveable layout in keeping with their daily life. The design resolution for this project resulted in extending the ground floor into an existing long narrow Garage, and create a new open kitchen / dining / living area, which was much more social and ergonomic.

The old Kitchen was converted into home schooling Study, which could either be open to or closed from the living area. More glazing was added to the northern side of the home to both increase passive heating in winter, and greater connect with the outdoor living space and gardens.
