Mayne House, Gymea Bay


This project involved major renovations to the existing home.

The Brief

To upgrade the existing 1960’s cottage to provide living spaces on the ground floor and a new first level to provide bedroom and bathroom facilities. The shell of the existing cottage needed to be retained due to the council restraints with setbacks on a battleaxe block.

The Solution

The whole house was upgraded, addressing privacy issues from the adjacent right of way and maximising access to views of Coonong Creek Reserve from all areas of the house.

The Reaction

The clients were delighted with their new house and feedback from residents in the local area regarding the transformation have been very positive.
