Decorative Balcony & Verandah
This timber home had a rather bland facade fronted by a balcony deck in a bad state of repair. The Clients wanted to not only rebuild the balcony, but to enliven their home's street frontage and appeal, while providing improved , undercover access to their front door & a covered relaxation area associated with the master bedroom.
To suit the older style of the home, several decorative elements were incorporated, including exposed rafter ends, finials, post capitols & post brackets.
The large, northern windows are sun-shaded by a new slatted awning, This feature also integrates the otherwise separate central verandah, stair & landing, with the larger verandah & balcony at the end, to provide a unified & cohesive architectural solution across the length of the facade.
Also featured is 100mm wide Yellow Stringybark decking, exhibiting all the characteristics of a typical Australian HW, & hydraulic swaged stainless steel fittings to the ss wire rope balustrading.
