Sandringham Bungalow
Location: Sandringham, Auckland
Year: 2018
Having been divided into two flats, the clients wished to reinstate this old, gloomy bungalow to a family home and add a low key but contemporary addition that would include a new kitchen, dining room and living room. The old lean-to was demolished and the existing sunken garden was raised so that the new extension and decked terrace would connect seamlessly with a large new lawn. High ceilings, carefully placed windows and large sliding doors create light, space and flow to the outdoors. The restored bungalow houses bedrooms and new bathrooms, with careful reinstatement of its entrance porch, and typical bungalow features.
