The rear addition introduces the use of pink concrete as well as the home’s recycled roof tiles, which were used to construct the brise soleil. The pink concrete was achieved by adding a mineral pigment to the whole thickness of the material.

The existing 1980s pool and dense backyard vegetation was preserved in the backyard.

The sandstone wall, a common element in Sydney landscaping, has been used to create a seating area for a fire pit. The wall also includes steps that lead up to an upper level of the garden.

Wood cabinetry has been built-into one of the bedrooms and includes plenty of room for closet storage and open shelving by the door. Additional bedrooms are located on the main floor of the home and are positioned off a hallway that connects to the front door.
