Sonya explained to Pride Road that their 1960s house had too many rooms, very dark rooms, and very few windows. So they came to Pride Road looking to knock down as many walls as possible to create a big, bright living space.
During their concept design workshop with Magda they looked at the process of getting the house into a habitable state. Magda drew their options in front of them, discussing their pros and cons and listening to Sonya’s ideas. “As we had that conversation, there were many opportunities to create something magical, which is what we were trying to achieve.”
When planning, the most important thing to them was to get lots of light into the house, and to be able to see their beautiful garden. They wanted to ensure there was enough space for a kitchen, dining room and lounge so they could have a family space. Magda achieved this through a practical, bright, open-plan living space. Sonya loves the large open lounge as she is able to put a huge Christmas tree in there.
