Renovation and addition creates open, airy living zone at back of home

​​​​​​​Interfering with existing architectural elements – such as a classic tile roof – can be expensive so the architects for this home renovation and extension instead designed a pop-up roof for the new section to simply attach to the existing tile roof. While the clerestory windows ensure ample sunlight, the contemporary roof overhang brings a degree of shade to the tall, open-plan interiors. The concept of the wooden box insertion inside is continued outside, with niches cut out for sheltered seating and the barbecue.
