A lightweight addition was added on the first floor to lean over into the tree and the backyard while creating shelter below.

Recycled brick walls were used to screen neighbours and to contain the outdoor living areas.

A new pool pavilion was added to the rear of the pool just above the existing pool level to extend the living spaces further into the garden.
