Knocklofty Terrace Extension

City Houses

Knocklofty extension transforms a 1980s red brick veneer home into a modern, warehouse inspired family home. The home sits on a steep site overlooking West Hobart and the River Derwent beyond. To meet the clients brief the existing roof was removed, the building was simplified and a new level was added.

Volume and large glazing elements draw in light and provide a fresh, airy feeling to the home. Alterations enable social interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces but also between the living spaces and parents loft above.
