First Floor Addition
This project is a particularly interesting as it has to be all built backwards to accommodate the wishes of the client. This house is under the flight path of Sydney Kingsford-Smith Airport. The house has previously received the government handout of free noise insulation including ducted air-conditioning.
The client has put up with 2 years of waiting with Marrickville council..the plans being redrawn to suit various council inspectors 3 times. The architect had been finally driven to apathy and so the client had to end up with succumbing to severely modified plans…particularly the first floor addition part …instead of the usual add on upper box they were forced to accept a mansard roof with 1200mm wall heights. Whilst externally it looks fine internally usual space is compromised.
