In the 1920s, the Californian Bungalow emerged as a popular architectural style for homes in and around Sydney. It was seen as the ideal design for city-dwelling Australians who wanted to embrace the outdoors and adopt a more informal and modern lifestyle. Fast forward 100 years and these desires still ring true.
The vintage character of this charming 1920’s cottage in Willoughby has been retained and celebrated within a transformative renovation that opens up central living spaces and floods them with natural light via extensive glazing to walls, ceilings and sliding doors. The addition of a new back deck with outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool and garden completes the pleasing fusion of indoor and outdoor, imbuing a new sense of space, creating green view lines and providing flexibility year round.
