Making the best use of existing spaces to create an open-plan layout was key in the renovation of this dated home. The changes weren”t only internal, however. As the owners wanted a Balinese-style exterior, the roof lines were redesigned to create different levels and an impressive double-volume entrance was constructed between a pair of double garages. “The success of this house is based on free-flowing spatial principles and utilising the latest trends and technology,” says Durban architect Marco Pellegrini of Pellegrini Architects CC .
