Planning approval has been achieved for the remodel and extension to a bungalow on an elevated west coast site, forming a generous single level family home. The proposal seeks to re-configure and expand the floor plan, utilising existing structure and providing an open plan living space to fully capitalise on the views and better address the level changes across by the site. Planners commented ‘The proposed building is a well designed dwelling which has been designed taking the site’s topography and surroundings into account’
