Rous Cres Forrest Canberra
Rosin Bros were fortunate enough to be involved in the rebuilding of a purely sensational custom home. Working hand in hand with the owners and design consultants we were able to achieve a design which maximised the result for the owners yet enhanced the heritage values of the existing home. It is fair to say that without the intervention by the owners the existing heritage listed cottage would have had a limited life span. Challenges included designing around the existing 80 plus year old Liquid Amber tree in the back yard. To achieve the required scale of the home including basement parking and a pool necessitated close working with Heritage ACT in implementing a programme to restore or replace the majority of the original features.
Seamless integration between the old and new parts of the home and the delicate balance between old style and ultra modern fixtures and fittings have achieved the balance between the original cottage charm and the convenient living of a new custom built home. The use of high quality inclusions and our fantastic team of contractors has resulted in this home being successful in both State and National Housing Awards.
