This classic beach house was an existing bach which the owners wanted to enlarge and upgrade to enable them to share it with family and friends, and which would likely become a permanent home over the next 5 to 10 years.
Space Architecture Studio were chosen as Architects for the project after the owners had seen other projects in the Waikanae/Kapiti region.
The brief required the provision of a new main bedroom and en-suite, the enlargement of the kitchen and living areas and to provide a new protected outdoor living space.
The design retains the existing street elevation which has a quintessential bach aesthetic and a modest scale.
The new addition was designed to complement the casual aesthetic of the existing bach and create an open, airy main bedroom, and a sense of enclosure to the deck.
The renovation also included an ensuite, and new kitchen design.
