Motus was engaged to provide a first floor addition to an existing 1970s cottage in a quiet street in Cottesloe.  The owner was to continue living in the ground floor residence and the first floor additional was for a downsizer couple.

Motus designed a modern floating first floor box cantilevering over the front of the existing house.  A large balcony facing the street provides the required setback to the first floor addition.  A carport with a roof garden and green wall trellis within the external stair softens the building. 


Motus was able to provide a well-conceived solution on a very restricted budget.
