TURAMA is a 1922 California Bungalow in Arts & Crafts tradition. It has “sound bones” but needed bring into 21st century. There was no garage nor outdoor living area. The Owners wanted a large double garage with tiled Deck and an Orangery as a stand-alone building. This would give them Indoor/Outdoor living spaces to enjoy the view of Haulashore Island, the harbour and the western ranges. A new link to the house from the Orangery was also needed.

Inside the existing house the Main Entry was dark and small and the Existing Lounge needed to open up to the views. The Ensuites needed modernising and the Master Bedroom needed a new wardrobe. As both the Owners work from home the Bedroom used as an office needed enlarging. The Kitchen as located is in the right place but fixtures needed replacing.

The roof had leaks, it was old original corrugated iron, timber window joinery was single glazed and didn’t fit well and there was little insulation. Ceiling beams, feature post, architraves etc all characteristic of the Arts & Crafts movement were to be retained and refurbished.
