First floor extensions to existing house at Carnarvon Place, Durban
The brief was to extend the main house and create a first floor with a master bedroom, walk in closet, en suite bathroom as well as a study. A feature staircase is incorporated at the entrance hall creating a double volume entrance stairwell and retaining the existing arches and character of the house. Decorative wrought iron balustrades are added into the design as an extension of existing features. A contemporary, rational aesthetic is applied to this design to harmonize with the existing feel of the house, in order to achieve good design principles and maximum spacial benefit with budgetary constraints. The main emphasis is to achieve sea views on the first floor. A further design of a flalet over the garage was also a part of this brief.
