The Manse, Myocum
This 1980’s brick home on a beautiful acreage in Mycocum undertook a 5 month renovation and addition. Designed by Matt at Style Agenda the brief was to gain a walk in robe off the master bedroom, front veranda, capacity to gain unobstructed views in the living area, a deck off the rear & living room and enclose the existing verandah to gain more living space. A pool areas was also apart of the projects. Building a large custom load bearing in-situ window spanning across the entire length of the living room was difficult due to the size and complexity but in the end tuned out to be the main feature of the space. This was achieved by propping the existing roof, and building in place. Spotted Gum was used and is proving hard wearing and a stand out feature. An extension off the main bedroom to gain more views was not planned originally but added on and is a great feature to the space. The homes front door has been built as a feature and is concealed within the spotted gum cladding. The clients were worried about losing natural light so openings were created in the eaves/ front veranda roof to allow for this throughout the build process. A large external sliding door to the main deck was custom made and built on site which required meticulous workmanship A fibreglass pool was dropped in to the property and surrounded with travertine coping and tiled area..
