LANE COVE

A typical 1950s bungalow on Sydney’s lower north shore needed an imaginative and clever reworking to make the most of its large north-facing block and leafy garden outlook.
Villa+Villa completely reshaped the house by improving its layout. A powder room that was blocking views to the garden was removed, creating space for an entry lobby. The living and dining rooms were opened up and the kitchen, refitted. The main bathroom was relocated and enlarged, and the master bedroom now has an elegant ensuite bathroom.
Internal spaces were given a smart monochromatic colour scheme that defines the rooms and draws the lush, green views into the house. Outside, a new pool with a deck gives the garden another dimension.
