Elwood Duplex

Alterations & AdditionsSingle House


Project Description

This unassuming art deco Elwood Duplex was crying out for some attention after years of alterations and lean-to additions had left this home confused, cluttered and dark. Our clients came to us looking to strip the house back to bones whilst retaining the original features and extend out the rear together with a new first floor addition. The result was a contrasting but complementary addition, monochromatic materials and finishes were selected inside and out to allow for a neutral backdrop, a bright interior space due to clever use of skylights casts light into the Elwood Duplex.


Highly recommend De.Arch! Peita understood what we wanted, challenged and collaborated on our design ideas, encouraged us to be bolder in our choices, introduced us to new concepts and we love the finish product – our home.  Thank you!
