The architects maintained the original entry from a visual streetscape point of view, however, they also introduced a new physical entry into the middle of the house from the eastern side.

The house also received a new extension that features a black facade and large windows. There’s also a landscaped yard with a bbq, outdoor dining area, and patio.

The new interior is a strong contrast to the exterior with white walls, a concrete floor, and a window seat.
